In 1753 Egbert Douwes and his wife Akke Thijsses open their grocery store in colonial wares "De Witte Os". In this way, they lay the foundation for the Douwe Egberts and Pickwick brands on Midstraat in Joure. Coffee, tea and tobacco are the main products.
In 1937 Douwe Egberts Pickwick introduces tea. An English name was sought, because at that time tea still had a very "English" feel and an English stagecoach was depicted on the wooden boxes. The wife of the then director was very fond of Dickens's works. After reading the Pickwick Papers, she suggested the name Pickwick.
