For the past century our company has been actively engaged in producing and exporting our sweetener ranges all over the world. The combination of our product and marketing expertise together with the market knowledge of our own local representatives and our long-standing distributor partnerships has proven to be a successful formula.
Hermes is a Swiss company and was founded in 1904 as a trading company and has marketed - amongst other products - the first sweetener Saccharin. In 1932 Hermes registered the brand 'Hermesetas' as one of the first sweetener trademarks in the world. In 1954, Hermes introduced its second brand 'Assugrin'.
Today, Hermesetas is a popular sweetener brand sold in over 100 countries world-wide and in many of these holds a leading position especially in the UK, Scandinavia and southern Europe.
Our second brand name, Assugrin, is well known and highly regarded, particularly in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Spain and Brazil.
Our subsidiary business, Sucrin Ltd, with their extensive product range, flexibility and progressive business programme, have made a major impact in the areas of private label sweetener products and own label trade mark brands.
Zurich is the hub for sales and the co-ordination of marketing strategies, such as corporate and product identity, corporate communications and publicity. Our own subsidiaries in London and Paris ensure that we are very close to the markets and our customers.
