Philosophy

Precious nature for a precious life

The name Pfanner stands for a family, a company, a brand, and a philosophy: To give our utmost to produce high-quality products using the gifts of nature. The people, their needs and in our case taste, enjoyment, health and refreshment are at the centre of this philosophy. This means that at every level of the production process we apply the highest quality standards, which we ensure through constant monitoring and controls. We take great care when selecting, processing and bottling our fruits. We believe that innovation, development and continuous improvement are a reflection of a living brand. And this has stood the test of time: Over the course of more than 160 years, Pfanner has gained the trust of millions of consumers.

Advertising

When Peter Pfanner is not in front of the camera shooting TV commercials, he is the managing director and co-owner of Pfanner GmbH. A successful company like Pfanner, dedicated to enjoyment and a healthy lifestyle, has to do its business with a certain degree of seriousness. The same is true when it comes to quality and the relationship we have with our business partners and customers. But products that are associated with this much enjoyment and fun must not be presented in a too serious way – don’t you think?
