Grossekathöfer becomes HÖF

As a family company founded in 1995 with a mission to make the best speciality baked goods, Grossekathöfer has become something of a victim of its own success. Over all these years of building our company and expanding, our focus has changed. We initially concentrated on our home region, Nordrhein Westfalen, but more and more customers from other parts of Germany joined us, until Grossekathöfer became Germany’s leading puff pastry speciality bakery. Today, we get requests from all over Europe and we have become the preferred supplier of Europe’s finest retailers.

What’s in a name?
Conquering Europe step by step has been a wonderful journey, but we recently realised that something had to change. As we are well aware, our family name is not the easiest name to pronounce for non-German speakers. For that reason, we decided to change our company name from Grossekathöfer to Höf, with a nod to our family heritage and our German roots, of course. We have quickly gotten used to our new moniker and we hope you will too!

Along with the new name comes a new identity and a more focused assortment. Plus: we have many, many new product innovations coming up. However, despite all these changes, please rest assured that there’s one thing that will always stay the same: our drive for excellence. Quality is still – and will always be- our middle name.

All in all, there’s a lot to be excited about and many things to be grateful for. We’re looking forward to everything the future has in store for us. Thank you for being part of our family and joining us on our journey!
