Our history started more than 100 years ago. It’s in the taste!


Van Ham is a true family business. It all started in 1896, with a patisserie and confectionery store in Tilburg, which turned into a wholesale business in 1919. In the 60s, van Ham moved to Hilvarenbeek, where it continued growing. Patrick van Ham has been at the helm since 1996, making him the fourth generation to develop this beautiful company into what it is today: a full-fledged producer of a wide range of pralines, chocolate products and seasonal products of artisanal quality. Innovative, high-tech and with our own product development team, Van Ham Chocolaterie has become well-known even across the border. FSSC22000 certified and situated in Esbeek since 2010, with plenty of space to realise ambitious plans for the future.
