Our story starts
On 1 February 1931, Mr Adrianus Huyser (born in Amsterdam in 1892) registered the limited partnership A.L. Huyser & Co. in the Commercial Register in Amsterdam. As sole partner, he contributed 25,000 gilders and granted power of attorney to Mr Johan Frederik Möller (born in Amsterdam in 1902). The company began at Singel 390 in Amsterdam and was involved in the import, export and commission business of primarily cocoa products.
In 1933, the company moved to Reguliersdwarsstraat 108-144 in Amsterdam. In 1937, Mr Huyser had recorded in the Commercial Register that ‘the Company is currently running an import and export business in feed, cocoa products & Indian products’.
On 13 September 1939, Mr Möller joined as a second partner. Following the outbreak of the war, the company moved to Vossiusstraat 43 in Amsterdam and developed more activities: ‘currently import and export trade in the widest sense of the word’.
In 1943, the company changed its name to Huyser, Möller c.v. Following the difficult war years, the company began to focus on its original activities once again.
In the 1960s and 70s, Huyser Möller lost his role as commission agent (intermediary) and the company increasingly took responsibility for its own trading. In 1989, the company relocated to the Purmer region to the north of Amsterdam.
Between 1970 and 2005, Huyser Möller processed (cleaned) the cocoa in Terschuur. The processing unit then moved to Barneveld, where a storage unit was also added.
On 24 March 2006, Huyser Möller opened its doors to the new office premises in Edam.
