Since 1999, Appel, more than ever, prepared itself to meet the upcoming challenges for the future:
The incorporated company Heristo (former Stockmeyer group in Bad Rothenfelde), integrated the traditional plant as premium supplier in its gourmet food section.
In the beginning of 2008, Appel takes over the position as market leader in the section of canned fish. This success is based on the many years of experience of this company.
Appel regularly includes product innovations with highest quality to its range of goods.
Even after more than 130 years Appel is one of the most important brands for gourmet food.
