Our Origins

Why are our origins so important to the services we provide today? Why is the tradition behind our company such a significant factor for today's perspectives of our future?

Käfer, the premium brand from Germany

Käfer is the name of a family with a rich tradition which has become an internationally acclaimed brand of premium products, premium quality and premium services. Käfer is the brand that embodies supreme performance in every dimension of food, service and retail, unique in Germany. This status is the result of Käfer's hard work – providing consistently high-quality service for each and every customer, each and every day.

To ensure that our customers always experience the Käfer brand as a blend of elation, inspiration and perfection, we operate an uncompromising approach to quality and train our staff intensively and in depth. The quality of our brand lives not only from the excellence of our range, not only from the innovation of our services, but also – and equally – from the perfect qualifications of our staff.

We do not take our orientation from market trends. Instead, we take our orientation from our customers, and redefine markets on this basis.

Delicatessen - Founded in the past, looking to the future

The global success story of Käfer began in 1930, when Paul and Elsa Käfer opened their grocery store in Munich's Amalienstrasse. Since that time, Käfer has consistently pursued the philosophy of seeking out top-quality, innovative products and recipe ideas from all over the world and introducing them to connoisseurs and gourmets.

Today Käfer is an international company employing almost 700 staff, with subsidiaries in Berlin, Frankfurt and the Kingdom of Bahrain. The company continues to maintain its position as European leader in the party service sector. The Käfer brand has reached a globally relevant status that is unique and distinctive.

The future of the Käfer brand lies in the consistency with which we continue to offer our high standards in new concepts and innovations.
