History Van der Meulen Master bakers.
In 1910 Hessel van der Meulen establishes a small artisanal biscuit bakery in Ferwerd. The high quality soon became a household name in the north of the country. The demand for Van der Meulen Beschuit continues to grow strongly and expansion is soon needed. The company moves to Hallum, where a large bakery, specially designed for Beschuit, is being built under the name "De Volharding".
In 1930, the 2nd generation started exporting rusks to America under the motto: "the more you eat the more you want!"
