History

History

Wijsman is supplier of canned butter since 1846, and therewith the oldest company of our Group. In 1900 the first butter was already exported to Indonesia, in wooden barrels, because cans and tins weren’t available at that time. Also the controlled temperature transport wasn’t comparable with the transport facilities we are able to use nowadays. The barrels were chilled in a big space with lots of big ice cubs. Lots of developments took place meanwhile and after 1945 the butter was canned.

The family business was located in Amsterdam for over a decade and moved to Wijk en Aalburg in 1973, where it now still holds her office. Wijsman canned butter is a product to be proud of, with a long history. The popularity has been growing ever since and Wijsman always garantees great quality and service for her products.
