In 1974, the senior head Eberhard Ortlieb began by producing jams, marmalade and desserts. He learned the trade from his father, who produced dried vegetables, preserves and delicious jams in his day. Later, these sweet indulgences were replaced by the production of frozen fruit and vegetables for customers of the European food industry over a long period. In 1988, the exclusive trade with nuts which represents our core business today began. The hazelnuts were initially processed in Turkey but production was relocated to the headquarters in the Hessian town of Bensheim a few years later in order to be able to produce individually and promptly for German customers. From its base in Bensheim, Ortlieb started a development project for organic hazelnuts in Azerbaijan in 1997. Since then, this collaboration has become more than just a business relationship between the farmers and the production plant; it has become a close partnership.
