Christof Schenk was 20 years old when he founded Holderhof Products Inc. in 2000. His goal is, production and marketing of elder (sambucus nigra) raw materials as well as elder products. The first elder trees were first planted in 1998. His first product, Elderwood wine, was the subject of his degree dissertation in agronomy. Then he successfully completed commercial college. Since the demand increased steadily, the elder plantation was expanded to 10 hectares. As a start-up entrepreneur, Christof Schenk works 100% in his own company and at the same time is supported by 7 additional employees. Because of the increasing demand, the elder cultures have been expanded to 10 hectare with new herbage-, berry- and fruit plantations. We enlarged our ranch of products with a strong commitment to innovation. Since 2012 we produce syrups, fresh fruit juice and other soft drinks on our own filling plant for PET bottles in Henau SG. The production got upgraded with a blow moulding machine in 2014. We started our own production of syrups in glass bottles in 2017. Over the years, the number of employees has steadily increased to today 25.
Holderhof production – meets the taste of our consumers. We continually develop and introduce new products. More and more companies are confident of our products. Even abroad. No wonder: our products are made from 100% natural raw materials, without artificial sweeteners and dyes. Valuable raw materials result from a careful harvest and a gentle processing and originate in healthy and aromatic foods. The groundwork of success for Holderhof Produkte AG is exactly this care and love in nature and the end product.
