When tradition meets innovation

Taste Westerlund is the name of the new family holding company founded by Jean-Jacques Westerlund in 2009. In 2008, the well-known Antwerpbased Westerlund Group was sold to Euroports, ending more than a century of the family’s involvement in marine terminal operations and logistics.

The Westerlund Group was a world leader in the handling and logistics of forest products serving paper – and pulp producers and consumers through its port terminals in Antwerp, Rouen, Tilbury and Changshu. The same year when the company was sold to Euroports, it handled over 9 million tons through its several locations worldwide.

The main focus of Taste Westerlund is real estate, private equity investments via Taste Invest and yacht chartering via Taste Yachting.

With TASTE INVEST we invest in innovative start-ups and small medium sized companies with the intention to generate social and environmental impact alongside a financial return.
