We are the best proof of a lively history.

Figures mark events; both small and large. The origins of our company date back to the year 1899.

Josef Jansen founded a modest trading outlet for baking and cream powder, spices and spice extracts in the then independent town of Barmen.

Founder Josef Jansen

In those days customers from the region appreciated, in particular, the outstanding freshness and quality of the goods on offer as well as the punctuality and reliability of the way an order was handled. In this respect nothing at all has changed to the present day.

And yet so much is different to those days. We have grown consistently with the requirements of an ever-changing world. Over the years the then purely trading company has developed into a significant production operation with global sales channels.

Today, four family generations later, the company under the management of family members Armin Jansen and Klaus Vieten is still maintaining these proven traditions without disregarding the enormous challenges presenting themselves to ensure a successful future.

The result: aromas, essences and baking enhancers that make the lives of connoisseurs and experts more tasteful. Products that rank among the best of their kind and which are on everyone’s lips worldwide.
