In the second half of the 19th century, Jules Destrooper was a colonial trader with a hobby of baking cookies. He experimented with the spices which he imported from Africa and the East. In 1886 the Biscuiterie Jules Destrooper was founded. Today, a fourth generation family company, Biscuiterie Jules Destrooper offers a range of traditionally classic, premium cookies, made of only the most purest and natural ingredients, to customers in 65 countries worldwide. A sister of the butter crisp, with a vanilla flavor and even more pure butter, Jules Destrooper Butter Waffles are real Belgian waffles. A real treat alone or topped with your favorite fruit, mousse or puddings, they add just the right touch to desserts. Simple, yet elegant.
