Adriaan Johannes van Oordt

Thee Van Oordt’s history starts at March 23, 1799 with the birth of Adriaan Johannes van Oordt in Rotterdam. His father Adriaan van Oordt (1761 – 1831) is a merchant in the tea- and coffee trade at Arij Duermeijer & Zoon. His grandfather Hendrik van Oordt (1710 – 1805) is also a merchant and the founder of the Rotterdam Van Oordt sugar refinery (1734). They are descendants from wealthy merchants from Zeeland with entrepreneurship running through their veins.

At the age of 24, just like his father, Adriaan Johannes van Oordt starts working for Arij Duermeijer & Zoon as a merchant in the tea- and coffee trade. It appears to be the stepping stone for his own company. After 10 years of gaining experience the time has come to stand on his own  feet. On January 1st, 1834 Adriaan Johannes van Oordt & Zoonen & co is ready for business.
