In Tradition Since 1909

J.LUEHDERS- Finest Confectionary from Germany


The company history of the family-run business Johannes Lühders KG
In 1909 my grandfather started with a grocery store in Hamburg-Wandsbek. The assortment covered specialities like dried figs, dates, bananas and plums which he sold successful to many delicatessen stores. The quality of his products got around and Lühders became famous.
Because the premises were too small to handle the increasing demand, he relocated his business close to Hamburg’s central market in 1920. The product range was enhanced with ginger and candied fruits. Due to the quality the products were requested all over Germany.
To extend his sales with candies and fruit preserves my grandfather purchased a jam factory in Hamburg-Hamm and after extensive renovations the entire production and packaging also moved to Hamburg-Hamm in 1923. Dokumente
My father Johann-Hinrich Lühders inherited the management of the company in 1958. He implemented modern production technology – such as an automatic casting machine for jelly and fondant products – and assured herewith the company’s continuance.
Since January 1998, I manage the company in the third generation. We began to sell our traditional confectionary to retail stores and started export business. Enormous growth and the need to optimize the technical workflow made it necessary to build up a totally new building in Stelle in April 2000.
Permanent modernisation and our extensive experience acquired throughout many years, guarantees that we satisfy highest quality demand now and in the future. By new factory extension we can douple our production capacity in 2015.

Yours Johannes Lühders Johannes Lühders
