Our lifetime assignment emerged from our fascination with the beekeeping and the bee´s valuable products as well as the diversity of honey varieties.
The company founder Gerrit Lang developed his passion for bees and honey in very young age through his father Walter Lang and worked in the apiary during his early years. Having studied business engineer, Gerrit Lang dedicates himself to the trade of organic honey. The idea was quickly turned into a concept to found an own Bioland apiary. Thus, he was able to contribute and implement his ideas and experiences from beekeeping to honey harvest up to the filling and sales – everything from a single source.
We are not only appasionated beekeepers but above all your EXPERTS IN NATURAL SWEETENERS and COCONUT PRODUCTS. With a few and carefully selected ingredients we create innovative organic food for your enjoyment. As a young food technologist, Karin Lang became familiar with agave syrup in the mid-1990s. In less time she developed the first recipes and soon agave syrup was on everyone´s minds. Today, it is a well-known mono product as well as ingredient and its absence is barely impossible to imagine. Her enthusiasm for natural sweeteners grew and thus, the desire to present the nature´s diversity in taste and use by means of an OWN ORGANIC BRAND. In Germany „agava“ is exclusively available in the organic food trade. All of the brand´s products are vegan and a lot of them provide valuable alternatives for allergy sufferers and intolerance of e.g. gluten or fructose. „agava“ is a lively brand and stands for joy in foodstuff and pleasure, natural sweetness and variety in taste and use.
In 2001 Gerrit Lang founded the company Sonnentracht GmbH as migratory Bioland apiary. Seven years later, the fist coconut products were filled and in 2012, Karin Lang introduced her brand “agava”. Within the course of this development, the premises were expanded and at the same time the production facilities were set up. Sonnentracht GmbH specialised increasingly on alternative sweeteners and the processing of agave syrup and coconut products. From the beginning a comprehensive quality management has been established and implemented in the course of operations. Sonnentracht GmbH is certified at a higher level according to IFS standard. In the beginning of 2017, the production and warehouse area was expanded up to 10,000 sqm to ensure future growth. Sonnentracht GmbH produces organic products by 100%. Since the company foundation, it is member of Bioland association and since the mid of 2016, it is partner of Naturland as well.
