Meet The Team




Founder / Chocolatier

Car came to Canada in July of 1952 as a boy of 10 years. Along with his older siblings, Cor was soon put to work in helping to establish the family in Canada.

Educated through the Canadian school and College system he would soon establish himself as a technical and sales professional and built his reputation in the manufacture and sales of food production and packaging machinery systems. His knowledge of food processes and food handling requirements brings valuable expertise to Dutch Boys Chocolate.

On the creative side, Cor studied with World Master-Carver Robert Ptashnik to further develop his wood carving abilities to become an award-winning professional carver able to hand carve the numerous unique patterns required for mould making.

Retirement however did not suit Cor’s enthusiastic creative spirit and after meeting Henry who had similar thoughts about retirement, the two men would form a strong friendship to collaborate on their new business ideas.
