Herbaria was founded in 1919 as a tea and medicine company by Karl Halter in Philippsburg (Baden Württemberg) and took over in the 1980s by our owner Otto Greither. So we came to Bavaria in the mid-1980s.
At the beautiful Schliersee, spices were finally added to the existing health range in the product range.
Organic quality – for Herbaria always the be-all and end-all.
The “Herbarians” are proud organic pioneers and love their controlled organically grown teas, herbs, spices and coffee – naturally from home, not only sent on the journey in Germany.
2006 – a year of further sustainable development in the company: “Only organic” was no longer enough. Organic quality must be fun, passionate, yes! Organic can be exquisite. Not without pleasure – another passion of the Herbaria team.
Managing Director Erwin Winkler and his small but fine troupe once again showed courage: the decisive product relaunch and bundling of decades of experience showed the consistent development – the creations of the premium spice series “Bio-Feinschmecker” were Born. “Organic gourmets” – exquisite individual spices from selected regions and irresistible spice mixtures. Hand-picked raw materials and attractive names and designs are self-evident. Spiced with the support of well-known top chefs, as well as hand-picked suppliers, a niche in the food market that has been sympathetically occupied ever since.
The topic of spices, as well as cooking, must be appealing to us, diverse and easy for everyone – and women to implement.
But quality and enjoyment are not only the priority for Herbaria when it comes to spices: our organic herbal teas, coffees and the natural drugstore also use selected and strictly controlled organic raw materials.
Herbaria shows that the organic market is an individual and pleasure market, not an assembly line market.
True to the motto “Bio is small, bio is beautiful”, the Herbaria team develops every day on the excellent and continuous premium quality of the natural products that promise pure enjoyment. For this purpose, Herbaria uses only selected organic raw materials, which are controlled far beyond the legally required standards. With great attention to detail, the products are produced sustainably in southern Germany.
Philosophy is lived, team spirit and human coexistence are inseparable from our mission and so the integration of people with limitations is very important to us. The long and friendly cooperation with the Chiemgau life support workshops in Traunstein – just one example. Among other things, our mini bread mills are mixed there and filled and labelled by hand. Two employees from the Oberland workshops in Miesbach also support us in the warehouse.
For the Herbaria team, living in harmony with nature & humans and making this possible for future generations is the basic idea of sustainability. These include values such as global environmental protection, fair coexistence and regionality.
The warm team spirit also shines in the Fischbachau branch: nothing works without the people who deal with our products every day. Our team is unique!
Since the product relaunch, the number of employees has increased from 10 to 30 currently. With a lot of motivation and an eye for lifestyle & innovation, our dedicated team works to continuously improve the outstanding quality of our products.
We are inspired by our motivation to offer you and you – our Herbaria friends – honest specialties that are in harmony with people and nature and make pure culinary enjoyment tangible.
