Products from Alfred Faller – since 1913

Alfred Faller – since 1913

Hand crafted jam from copper pans

The story of the Faller jam maker starts in 1913. The grocer Alfred Faller was regularly approached by local farmers with offers to buy large amounts of fruit. It was much more than he could sell in his little shop. But, unable to say no, he was confronted by a mountain of the finest fruit which was in danger of rotting. Along with his wife Therese, Alfred had the idea of preserving the fruit. The first homemade fruit jams were thus produced and their long shelf life enabled the people in Wiesental to enjoy delicious fruit in even the hardest of winters. The outstanding quality of Faller jam was soon recognised in the surrounding areas and the number of regular customers grew and grew and Faller jam became a household name in Kaiserstuhl and Markgräflerland.

In 1950 the Fallers' son Martin set out to turn the jam maker into a national brand. He soon supplied top hotels, delicatessens and health food shops with his hand crafted jam from copper pans.
Today, Thomas Faller is the third generation to head the Alfred Faller jam making company. Thanks to his personality, ideas and passion, Thomas has helped Faller jams to become one of the leading German premium quality jams.

Quality starts with the selection of fruit. Thomas Faller visits the best regional areas of cultivation at harvest time. He examines the fruit and selects the best. That is crucial as the taste of the jam relies to a great extent on the fruit.
The main elements of the skill of jam making are manual sorting of the fruit, stirring small amounts of jam in open copper pans according to traditional family recipes.

The desire for premium quality has long been at the heart of the philosophy and culture of jam making. This maxim alone can guarantee the maintenance of tradition and the originality of foodstuffs. This tradition has made Faller jams the ambassador for discerning taste and one of Germany's finest jam producers.

All hand-crafted. All original from the Black Forest.
