No other family in the world broke the mould for the evolution of chocolate other than Van Houten®. Their pioneering spirit, revolutionary ideas and drive to go further introduced new ways of cocoa processing, patented in the Netherlands in 1828.
Originating from a Coffee & Spice shop in Amsterdam in 1806, Van Houtens cocoa press was officially patented in 1828 claiming the invention of a lighter, nutritious cocoa powder.
Second generation: Son Coenraad enters the company and obtains a patent for dutching cocoa - a process known for creating a rich chocolaty taste. After exporting into the USA in 1889, Van Houten was one of the hottest brands on the market.
In 1922 Van Houten starts producing Chocolate tablets and confectionary to add to their already world-renowned cocoa.
The company was acquired by Barry Callebaut in 2002 and focuses on the core activities of the founding family: High quality Cocoa Dutched Powder and Couverture Chocolate.
