Our manufactory

Our manufactory

Herrmann’s Manufaktur is a family-run, certified organic company with the highest standards of quality and ethics. We are one of the first manufacturers of organic, species-appropriate dog and cat food in Germany.

Fair & regional – about us

2006 the company was founded by Karin (†) and Erich Herrmann to provide pets with natural, species-appropriate food. At that time an innovation, and so not yet available on the shelves.

New was also that animal love should not end with your own pet. Therefore we use raw materials from organic animal husbandry and from controlled organic cultivation.

Manufacture from the beginning

What began with hand bottling is today a company with around 60 permanent employees, approx. 100 products and a sustainable production site of 7,000 sqm.

We are proud of our own handcrafted production – a true manufactory.

Our employees also enjoy being part of our manufactory. Here, everyone knows everyone, everyone is valued in their own way and – of course – employees are allowed to bring their dogs to work.

On the following pages we would like to give you an insight into our own production, the raw materials we use, our product range and our consulting services.

More about our first years and the development – up to the 3rd location in Glonn you can read here in the blog post.

Recognised organic pet food company

Respect for people, animals and the environment

The ethical guideline of our company is to treat people, animals and the environment with respect. This starts with the family working atmosphere, continues with the use of organic meat or meat from species-appropriate husbandry and ends with our efforts to achieve sustainability and conserve resources.

Avoidance of artificial additives in our feed

Like home cooking

From an animal welfare project with many foster dogs with special needs, the idea of producing natural pet food without questionable additives was born. So first of all, species-appropriate natural dog food was cooked by the dogs themselves, then a local butcher’s shop was called in. But in order to really control all processes and the raw materials ourselves, we founded our own manufacture.
