Where Food Businesses Get Cooking.


Kitchen Republic is the home for starting and scaling food initiatives.

Our aim is to challenge the food industry by showing that production can be done differently: better tasting and with real positive impact. 

We prove it every day in our kitchen, with our collective of amazing food & drink entrepreneurs who undertake with guts and brains, instead of big budgets and easy answers.

Innovation no longer comes from large institutions and corporations, it’s coming from the bottom up. That's why it's more important than ever that artisan food companies organize themselves in a smarter, more efficient way to increase their rate of success. 

We'd love to be your guide in the Dutch food industry, your partner for trusted B2B connections and the springboard for your growth.

Kitchen Republic has created a one-of-a-kind platform where we fuel food entrepreneurs with insider knowledge, a powerful industry network and with an accessible work, production, and meeting space in Amsterdam-West.

Supportive Community


Our co-working environment inspires lots of collaboration and cross-pollination across brands and members.

Events + Workshops


We host a variety of inspiring gatherings, including our 12-week Academy programs for startups + scale-ups.


UPDATE! We did it, thanks to YOU!

We are so thrilled and grateful to announce that our crowdfunding campaign was a tremendous success. Thanks to the generosity of our community of supporters, Kitchen Republic actually EXCEEDED our funding targets, raising a whopping €200,000 to develop our next phase of growth.

So now what? With so many bustling businesses under one roof, we’re building out an additional space dedicated to scale-up kitchen studios, located right around the corner from our HQ, and expected to be ready around early Fall this year.

Here, our members will be able to both expand and streamline their production, and we’ll be able to offer exciting new services, including brand new office and event space rentals.
