Douwe Egberts (or DE) is a Dutch company that processes and trades coffee, tea and foods. The company was founded in 1753. In 1978, the company was completely taken over by the American company Sara Lee. In mid-2012 the company became independent and DE went to the stock market as D.E. Master Blenders 1753 NV. After a bid for all shares, the company was fully owned by a German investor at the end of 2013.
Pickwick is a tea brand from Douwe Egberts. The brand dates back to 1937 before the company sold unbranded tea for the first time in 1753 from a shop in the Midstraat in the Dutch city of Joure.
The name Pickwick is inspired by the title of the book The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club by Charles Dickens. The wife of the director had taken note of this book and suggested the real English sounding name 'Pickwick'.
