History and company structure

Living traditions

Heinrich Schwab founded the company under his name in Gießen. In 1972 he sold the company to fruit industry professionals who remain the company’s owners to this day. The Heinrich Schwab company was rechristened Schwabfrucht. The modern 10,000 m2 office building is located on a 40,000 m2 site. Schwabfrucht uses the latest technology for operations that meet the latest standards.
