About Us

Our Mission

We see a shift in our global food culture. A new generation of inventors, craftsmen, manufacturers, and eaters are taking radically new approaches in pursuit of a food system that is better for people and the planet. These innovators are the front-runners of the new future where food is planet friendly, nourishing and delicious.

At HERMANN’S, we have made it our mission to find these people, to learn from them, and to share their stories and discoveries. Through our research and experience, we help individuals and companies transition into a better food future.

Our Heritage

We are a daughter brand of Bahlsen, a German biscuit manufacturer founded by Hermann Bahlsen in 1889. As an individual, Hermann was findig im Finden: he could unearth ideas and potential where others wouldn’t think to look and had the ingenuity to build an enduring business out of them. Finding opportunities is in our DNA. We believe that kind of mindset is needed, now more than ever.

Our Team

We are a team of chefs, bakers, researchers, consultants, strategists, designers, gardeners and writers rethinking food and its future.
