Our History

Voortman Cookies began in 1951 when two young Dutch brothers, William and Harry Voortman, opened their first bakery in Hamilton, Ontario. It took five years of dedicated baking and hard work before a Canadian grocery chain agreed to give Voortman Cookies shelf space in their stores!

Even though our name has changed, our commitment to using simple, real ingredients has not. At Voortman Bakery, quality and taste has always been and always will be our top priority. From our classic Windmill cookies to our new Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, we’re constantly reinventing what delicious tastes like!
