Pfanner is a wholly family-owned company, owned by the Pfanner, Schneider and Dietrich families, who run the company jointly with an external management team. The company’s roots go back to 1856 when Max Hermann Pfanner established the company in Austria. Due to the mild climate they had easy access to apples and pears. The Pfanner family uses the fruits collected by the farmers to produce fruit wine. In 1983 Pfanner becomes a pioneer of iced tea production. Not much has changed about the careful production process since then: the teas are still freshly brewed today! Pfanner launched the first 2-litre pack with screw top, which today is the most popular packaging type in Germany. Today they distribute their products to more than 80 countries worldwide.
