1979 was a very special start-up date in the history of the company. drinks & food established by Jürgen Bouchette, grasped the opportunity presented by the inner- German movement of goods characterised and limited by the special political situation. A feel for the market requirements of the then Federal Republic and the realistic assessment of production facilities in the former Democratic Republic, were the basis and guarantee for a flourishing mutual trade.
With the reunification of Germany, the company also got on a new track. Turning from a product-orientated trading company into an active production company – as before owner-managed by siblings Michael Bouchette and Dr Linda Hultqvist. However, only the distribution company trades as drinks & food – with head office in Berlin – and markets products of its own make as well as an import range.
