In 1947, Alfred Zindel founded the business and to this day, it is still family-run and located in central Germany. Initially focussing on the distribution of fresh fruit from the region, our focus today is on frozen fruit, vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, and convenience products.

Long-term business relationships allow us to supply goods that are strictly controlled from start to finish. We take account of our high quality standards with the help of strict inspections of our suppliers on-site, as well as our own production site.

Thanks to our logistics system built on our own transport fleet, we carry out reliable deliveries. This offers us the opportunity to react extremely flexibly to our clients’ immediate needs. 



Together with over 20 employees, many years’ experience, and great commitment, our business stands for the following values:    

  • Market expertise
  • Quality
  • Reliability
  • Loyalty
  • Tradition
