OUR COMPANY HISTORY
Our company‘s long tradition began with its founding on August 14 1919 by Christian Goedeken Senior. Together with his son, Christian Goedeken Junior, he soon shaped the company into a specialized business for international seafood products.It didn‘t take long after that for the newest offers to be published regularly in a „Fish Newspaper“.
By the 1930‘s, the company was a dependable partner in delivering fresh fish to its customers in handy portions, and ready to cook.
In the 1960‘s, the company became one of the first to import high-quality frozen foods from Asia, and became one of the leading fish and seafood merchants for high-end gastronomy in Germany.
After Christian Goedeken jr. temporarily belonged to the Unilever group, our current owner Karl-Heinz Führer took over the company in 1998, giving it a new structure and orientation. The company also moved to a new location, where the production of high-quality seafood convenience products was expanded.
Today, Christian Goedeken jr. GmbH regularly supplies over 100 wholesale dealers in Germany, and has once again become a real family business based in Germany, with Martin Führer as a fellow partner.
