The history of Koopmans begins in 1846, when Uilke Klazes Koopmans decided to quit his job as a baker’s apprentice and to start his own business. Uilke purchase a horse mill in Holwerd and started grinding and producing flour made from buckwheat. At that time, buckwheat was very popular ingredient for making pancakes and cereal meal (grits). Upon success of his business, Koopmans decided to move his company to Leeuwarden in 1856. Thanks its new location in Leeuwarden, Koopmans was able to source different types of cereals and wheat from anywhere in the world. To cope with increasing demand for its products Koopmans started importing grain from the Americas and the Baltic States. In 1881, Jan Koopmans, son of Uilke Koopmans takes over the business. But it was really the next generation of Koopmans that really propelled the brand in becoming a nationwide success.
