Droste, in full Droste B.V. Vaassen, is a Dutch chocolate producer founded in Haarlem in 1890. The Drostepastilles are still being produced, just like the chocolate letters.

The company, originally a family business, has been taken over several times and has been an independent business unit within the German company Hosta since 1997. The original Droste roasting plant was still in use until 2004, as part of Dutch Cacao BV, which had been producing Blooker cacao there since 1986, but in that year the production moved to a new factory in Amsterdam. Since 1986, the production of Droste has taken place in Vaassen and the chocolate products of this company are sold in more than seventy countries. More than 65% of turnover is realized abroad.

The name Droste comes from the pastry and biscuit baker Gerardus Johannes Droste from Haarlem. From 1863 he sold chocolate pastilles (round, flat chocolates that he calls Pastilles Droste) in his shop on the Verwulft in Haarlem (nowadays a branch of McDonald's is located). In 1890 he opens a factory in that city.
