The history of our company
1986Founding of the companyIn 1956, the young Hamburg businessman Horst Herrmann Krause founded a company for the trade of food additives, which he received from other European countries, but also from overseas.
XXXXGrowthThe flourishing German industry in the late post-war years needed more and more to meet the growing food consumption of the population. While sample products were initially stored in the parental garage, a storage area in Hamburg's free port was soon rented, from which samples were sent to German customers
XXXXTartaric acid productsOver the next few years and decades Horst Herrmann Krause has been steadily expanding its customer base. Still at the age of 70 years, he added to the trade in tartaric acid products from the Spanish Catalonia in his portfolio.
2013In 2nd generationWhen he died at the age of 83 in 2013, his son, Hamburg-based chemical engineer Ingo Krause, took over his father's business into his own company, which has been supplying tablet presses for the pharmaceutical industry since 2006. Thus, the business with tartaric acid of 100% natural origin is successfully continued in the 2nd generation.
