About Smoked by Liz
The online delicacy house, SMOKED by Liz, was founded in 2021 by Elisabeth (Liz) Beukers, who was born and raised in the village of Bunschoten-Spakenburg. I grew up with delicious, pure and authentic delicacies. From home ‘on the farm’ I have been given the love and respect for natural products. From my family heroes the passion, love and conviction for the entrepreneurial profession!
I was born in an agricultural entrepreneurial family from Bunschoten. From my mother’s side I am part of one of the oldest fishing families in Spakenburg. Its origin dates back to the early 15th century.
My father, Rut Beukers, is a very successful agricultural entrepreneur, who successfully founded, expanded and then sold his entire agricultural empire from one calf. My great-grandfather, Vok Muys, was a very successful, well-known and a very influential entrepreneur in the fish trade and smokehouse world throughout Europe. My grandfather, Rut Koops, has successfully put the painting craft of the Koops family business back on the map, with quality as the main characteristic.
These three men are my family heroes, it is to this that I owe my entrepreneurial spirit and perseverance. The secret of these successful entrepreneurs: Thinking, Daring &, above all, Doing. That is now my entrepreneurial motto.

Where is it made?
How could it be otherwise, our delicious exclusive, luxurious and authentic delicacies are smoked in the beautiful fishing village of Spakenburg. The ports of Spakenburg are inextricably linked to Liz’s fishing family. Here lie the botters with which the fishermen earned their living and here they were welcomed again after weeks at sea.
Liz’s great-grandfather played a key role in receiving the catch, trading the fish and smoking the fish. Our smoke masters belong to the same influential fishing family of Liz and have been born with the vision to develop a fair product with respect for our nature. Passion, conviction, love and respect for the product. You taste that!
