GEFRO - a family owned business steeped in history

Unglu-d is passionate about working with quality gluten free providers, who we work with is as important as the product or offering itself.  I was first introduced to GEFRO through the Coeliac Society who gave me their sample size soups to try and I was thrilled as 'food on the go' is such a challenge.  When they contacted me to learn more about Unglu-d and see if we could work together it was a no brainer.

What I love about GEFRO is it's a family owned business steeped in history.  In 2019 GEFRO celebrated it's 95th Birthday and in true GEFRO style all employees were part of the year long celebrations.   Great value is placed in all its employees and they're renowned for their family-friendly policies including paying for all pre-school childcare.   Employees are also encouraged to put their product ideas forward and creative thinking is part and parcel of working at the company.

GEFRO is located in the Bavarian town of Memmingen close to the Alps and is deeply rooted in the community.  The company story began in 1924 with brothers Josef and Ignaz who were selling everything from coffee to soaps and delivering personally to customers doorsteps.  With the wide-spread arrival of supermarkets in the 1960's the company decided to streamline and concentrate on soups and sauces and today is one of the best known brands in the country.  

GEFRO products gluten free, vegetarian and a lot of the products are also vegan.  The decision to offer vegetarian only products was a conscious one and born out of the conviction that tasty, healthy food doesn't have to contain meat to taste good.  GEFRO work closely with the Coeliac Society in Germany and support many of their events throughout the year.  It's a real pleasure working with GEFRO and their products....their vegetable bouillon is a steady staple in my kitchen and not sure I’d have gotten through this constant soup making season without it !
