Many of the products on the packages use the metric system while Holland’s Best for your convenience uses the imperial system. To assist you we have included a Conversion Table for anyone not familiar with European weights and measures. The conversion forced us to round numbers off to the nearest half of an ounce, so the weights are approximate.Klaas Mensonides
