History
For more than a century and a half, the name Fortuin stands for taste, style and quality. In the year 1842, 
Fortuin was founded by Willem Hendrik Fortuin in the city of 
Dokkum, in the northern part of the Netherlands. Over the years the company became a premium confectionery company and developed the DF peppermint, the original English peppermint. As the market-demand for this product outgrew the supply, Fortuin decided to expand business to an industrial level in 1888. Since then, Fortuin added many products to its assortment and developed into a professional and flexible sugar confectionery specialist. 

Wilhelmina peppermint
Fortuin’s strongest brand is Wilhelmina peppermint. For more than 120 years, Wilhelmina Mints are known for its unique and fresh taste with a royal note.  Wilhelmina Mints were created in 1892 by Fortuin in honour of the company’s 50th anniversary and as a homage to the Dutch Princess Wilhelmina, who was 12 years old at that time and who later became Queen of the  Netherlands. The portrait of Princess Wilhelmina can be found on each mint tablet.
The first box of Wilhelmina Mints was offered to the Dutch Royal Family. They were so delighted that they granted Fortuin the predicate Warrant Holder of the Dutch Royal Family. Fortuin still owns this royal status today and Wilhelmina Mints are as popular as ever!
Although the unique taste of Wilhelmina Mint remains unchanged for over 120 years, many different packages have been developed over the years. There is a suitable packaging available for every moment: at home, on the go or after dinner in a restaurant. Moreover Wilhelmina Mints are also often given away as a souvenir, as the products is seen as something typical Dutch.
