History of Joris ?

Joris Van den Driessche, the grandfather of the current manager Hans Van den Driessche, set out the course of this marvellous adventure in the years '20-'30. During the years '30-'40 his son Jan Van den Driessche took control of Joris: in his small kitchen he did everything himself and he managed to produce at least 50 kilos of sweets a day!
Everything was manually produced, as well the chocolate truffles as the hard confectionery, the soft toffees, the coated tablets, the nougat and the gums.
When the Second World War broke out, the production was disturbed: the only remaining ingredients were sugar and gelatin. As a result, Joris concentrated on the production of gums, a product that was only a small part of their product range. It was a judicious choice as Joris is currently the Belgian market leader in quality gums.
