Established in 1985, Hans Jas Agencies & Trading B.V. has evolved from a decades-long family tradition of trading in nuts, peanuts and dried fruits. The company used its passion for these gifts from nature to quickly and successfully launch itself in the Dutch and European markets. In the early years, Hans Jas Agencies & Trading B.V. built a strong position by developing agencies and combining this with the import of desiccated coconut, peanuts and dried fruits.


In the early 1990s, we relocated our offices to the current site at 11 Burgemeester Haspelslaan in Amstelveen. One of our current partners, Pauline Bosstadt, joined the company in 1992, followed in 1998 by the third partner, Leendert den Boer. On changing its strategy in the late 1990s, the company shifted its emphasis to importing goods at its own risk and expense, at which point it changed its name to Jas Trading B.V.

From 2000 onwards

At the start of the new century, Jas Trading began to focus on tree nuts, its core products being cashews, Brazil nut kernels and pecan nuts, along with a wide variety of products such as Israeli shelling peanuts, dates, dried fruits, and so on. During this period we invested in developing the HACCP quality system and later BRC Global Standard for agents and brokers, while at the same time implementing point-of-origin inspections.
