We are passionate about enhancing the experience of life through the five senses.

We are intrigued by relationships between colour and shape. We are sensitive to touch and feel. We savor pleasant aromas. We are attentive to the sound of our souls. When we’ve considered all these, life just seems to taste better.

Our keen sensitivities guide us to the perfect shapes and colours to present fine food. Our clients are master artists. Their work demands respect. Creativity and individuality are infused into each design for personal expression and a lasting impression. We continually expand and improve our impressive collection of European elegance and quality, which offers endless possibilities in the design of complementary table top presentations.

Knowledge is a key ingredient to our success.

We believe learning is a lifelong pursuit. We seek to gain a better understanding of both our clients and the opportunities that new technologies and innovative products provide for them. Being committed to learn and understand is the quality that our many successful relationships are built on.

Our History

Globe Hotelware Agency was established in 1985 in Vancouver by Jan Knol. Recognizing the superior quality of European manufacturing, Jan seized an opportunity to distribute a line of chinaware. As a result of his philosophy of applied knowledge and impeccable service the company quickly grew. This approach is still driving the success of Globe Hotelware today. In 1993 Globe Hotelware expanded to open offices in Ontario where Bert Knol managed a growing and impressive list of national and international clients. In January 2000 Jan retired and Bert took ownership of the company.
