How it all began...

In 1973, we began making dressings with "Salatfix spicy herb" and were the first German producer. In those days, dressings were only imported from America and England which is why we can call ourselves the German inventor of salad dressings. We have been the no. 1 in non-cooled ready. made dressings for over 40 years.

Germany’s eating habits

All dressings are all alike no matter where you are, right? Not even close! Did you know that in Northern Germany, creamy dressings with yoghurt or crème fraîche are the preferred choice? Especially popular: Yoghurt dressing and Creamy Onion Dressing. In Southern Germany, however, salad dressings made from an oil and vinegar base tend to be preferred such as Fine Herbs Vinaigrette Dressing.

Consumption in Germany

Approximately 8.7% of the German population consumes salad dressing more than once a week. This corresponds to just under 7 million people. Incidentally, the Yoghurt Dressing is by far the most popular variety
