SONNENTOR has been going through life with a smile for over 20 years
SONNENTOR Kräuterhandels GmbH was founded in the Waldviertel in 1988. Starting point for the founder and CEO John Gutmann was the idea of selling organically farmed goods under the logo of the smiling sun on regional and international market. In 1992, an old farm in Sprögnitz was purchased and used as the business head quarters. It was converted to a production and distribution center and has been modernized and expanded over the years.
The SONNENTOR business idea is based on the concept of supporting small rural structures, which have a long-standing tradition in the Waldviertel district. To date, this business model has been the foundation of the ongoing success of the brand. For the continuous and consistent social and environmental commitment to regional suppliers, SONNENTOR has been recognized with the TRIGOS award in 2008.
Organic products are produced without genetic engineering. The use of genetically modified organisms or their derivatives is prohibited in organic farming and processing and contradicts the self-understanding of the organic industry.
