A. Driessen is a Dutch brand of chocolate. The factory of A. Driessen was located in Rotterdam since 1820. 

The raw cocoa material came from the former Dutch colony of Suriname. In 1854, the Driessen Cocoa and Chocolate factory was settled in Rotterdam district Rubroek. Later, the company was moved to the Rottekade. 

In 1871 the company received a Royal Warrant. In 1893 the factory was expanded and by the end of the century, Driessen was one of the major chocolate companies in the Netherlands. Following the outbreak of a crisis in the cocoa market in 1907 raw materials prices rose sharply. However, it was the stock market crash of 1929 and the subsequent Great Depression that brought the factory down. Driessen was in 1935 acquired by the Breda chocolate factory Kwatta. After more than a century the once famous company came to an end.
