The Koeze Company story began when Sibbele Koeze emigrated to America from the Netherlands in the 1880's. He built upon his Old World commitment to handcrafted, artisanal food while establishing in 1910 a thriving produce business in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
In 1925 we began manufacturing fine, handcrafted Peanut Butter and today we still make our Cream-Nut and Organic Sweet Ella's natural peanut butter on the same equipment using the same manufacturing methods. In 1977, hoping to bring the Dutch tradition of chocolate confections to our customers, we began making Gourmet Chocolates which have grown to be a tradition in many homes across the country. In 2020, we launched Zestos corn chips which have quite a following in the Midwest.
This year, 2022, marks our 112th Anniversary. Our business continues to produce and deliver gourmet products to our wholesale/grocery customers, our fundraising organizations, our two retail stores, and our ecommerce and catalog customers for their personal and professional gift giving.
Three generations later, Sibbele's solid commitment to quality, value and service remain the cornerstone of the Koeze Company. Whether it is our Colossal Cashews or our all natural Cream-Nut peanut butter, we guarantee that you will love your product or we will give you your money back! That's the Good As Gold guarantee which gives you the confidence to send our products to everyone on your gift list.
