  • About

    As early as 1817, an ancestor of the Stam Family ran a bakery that over time would develop a reputation for pastries and chocolates. In 1913, Jacobus Stam, upon urging from his clients, decided to specialize in chocolates exclusively. Hence, Chocolaterie Stam was created. Three of his four sons, Frits, Wim and Jaap, and one daughter, Fredi, decided to join their father in the chocolate business in the late 1930's and 1940's with each developing their own branch of the Chocolaterie Stam family tree. Frits' business turned very successful and was joined in 1978 by his second eldest son, Ad. The youngest of Frits's seven sons, Ton, felt that America would appreciate his father's chocolate as much as Netherlanders do. Now Americans can experience a nearly 100 - year Dutch tradition of fresh cream and nut filled chocolate bonbons from Chocolaterie Stam.
