A. Driessen is a Dutch brand of chocolate. A. Driessen's factory had been located in Rotterdam since 1820.
The raw material cocoa came from the then colony of Suriname. In 1854 the Driessen Cacao en Chocolaadfabriek in the Rotterdam district of Rubroek was put into use. Later the company was moved to the Rechter Rottekade.
In 1871, the company was awarded the title purveyor to the royal household. In 1893 the factory was expanded and by the end of the century, Driessen was one of the most important chocolate companies in the Netherlands. After the outbreak of a crisis in the cocoa market in 1907, raw material prices rose sharply. However, it was the stock market crash of 1929 and the subsequent Great Depression that killed the factory. In 1935 Driessen was taken over by the Breda chocolate factory Kwatta. After more than a century, the once-famous company came to an end.
