The company Lotus was founded in Lembeke in 1932 by the brothers Jan, Emiel and Henri Boone. When the company was founded, the brothers made cookies for breakfast and also speculoos for St Nicholas' Day; they later specialised in speculoos. Karel Boone, the son of founder Jan Boone, became a director in 1966 and was the CEO of Lotus for 32 years from 1974, and then the president of the company for 20 years[clarification needed] (1966–2012). In 2012, his brother Mathieu took over.
