Joh. Gottfr. Schütte GmbH & Co. KGKeep reading
Our trading company, Joh. Gottfr. Schütte GmbH & Co KG, was founded in 1792 and is one of the oldest medium-sized foreign trading companies in Bremen. Our core businesses range from the import of spices and herbs to honey, tea and various non-food consumer goods.
As a globally established honey importer and wholesaler, we supply the European honey bottling industry with unprocessed and untreated beekeeper honey from all production countries in the world. A close cooperation with raw material suppliers and our quality control system allow us to ensure a high and consistent quality standard.
We still operate one of the oldest business segments of our company group which is the acquisition and processing of herbs, medicinal plants and spices for the tea, herbal and pharmaceutical industry.
Our company has been established in the market as an importer of consumer goods and wholesaler for over 40 years, and we have been focussing our business on the topic of living environments in the indoor and outdoor sector over the last few years. Our range of products includes a wide selection of pieces of furniture and accessories from the home and living sector.
As a pure tea trading company, we can make use of our strong specialist knowledge, which leads to good products and a good service. Our close and trust-based cooperation with suppliers and producers in the countries of origin allows us to offer an extensive programme of orthodox specialities.
Sustainability for us is a combination of ecology, economy and great social responsibility. Therefore, this principle has become the mission statement of our entrepreneurial trade in the various sectors in which our group operates. Consumer and environment protection as well as social conditions play an important role in many procurement markets together with the quality control of our products and product safety.
Certified and customer-oriented quality management is required for a high standard of quality and it is of central importance within our company. We work tirelessly to further develop our quality standards to fulfil the quality and safety needs of our customers and supply products of the highest quality.
The topic of education is one of our company’s great success factors. We are regularly searching for young high school graduates, who have foreign language skills that they would like to build on within our company. We are also looking for young people who are interested in international flows of goods and logistical relationships, who would like to round this off with commercial training within a trading company.
