History

Continental Bakeries has a rich history that goes back to the 16th century. In 1593, Jacob Bussink started his bakery in Deventer, specializing in Deventer cake. Various mergers and takeovers over the centuries finally resulted in the current Continental Bakeries. Over time, a combination of family businesses into the strong business of Continental Bakeries.

Between 1952 and 1971, our business was under the former name Hooimeijer and was listed on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange. Continental Bakeries has been owned by NPM Capital NV since 2006. NPM Capital distinguishes itself from other investment companies through its long-term vision and the emphasis that it places on enterprise.
