The germ of a beautiful idea
It all began in the „Pfladermühle“, a 1,000-year old gristmill. In 1947, the chemist Dr. Felix Grandel founded his company for dietary and cosmetic products based on wheat germ. In second generation, Michael Grandel, a graduate in economics, leads the independently managed, family-owned company, which has developed into a major manufacturer of branded beauty products and services for the salon and spa industry.
