Our History

Koeze Company was founded in 1910 by my great-grandfather, Sibbele Koeze, as a wholesale grocer selling produce, butter, and eggs to small stores around Grand Rapids, Michigan.  His son, Albertus Koeze, took over the business about 1918.  In 1925 Albertus purchased a local peanut butter company, and from then until today peanut butter and roasted nuts have been part of Koeze’s.  My father and mother, A. Scott and Ruth Koeze, began making confections in the 1980’s. My mother retired in the early ’90’s, my father in the late ’90’s, and since then I (Jeff Koeze) have worked to continue our traditions of great products and great service.
