History

FLORAPHARM® is characterized by the early identification of changes on the market and creating new trends.
Always being one-step ahead determines the history and presence of the company in Upper Franconia.
Over 25 years ago, everything started in Zapfendorf near Bamberg with the sale of eight teas. In the meantime, we have
grown to offer about 1,300 teas. Since 2000, FLORAPHARM® is located in Schesslitz. The love for the product, the
consistent high quality, the extraordinary engagement of the employees and the enormous innovation strength for the
development of new tea trends – or in short: our passion for teas have remained the same. 

1993

FOUNDATION OF FLORAPHARM® IN ZAPFENDORF

25 years ago, the pharmacist Georg Kroll founded the
FLORAPHARM® company. In the initial years, the
company concentrates on the development of production
based on pharmaceutical aspects, which is facilitated
thanks to a manufacturer´s permit for medicinal teas. 

2000

RELOCATION TO SCHESSLITZ

The sustainable growth of FLORAPHARM® leads to a
relocation of the site to Schesslitz. There, FLORAPHARM®
builds an ultra-modern tea manufactory strictly seperating
flavoured or herbal teas and classic teas.

2005

FLORAPHARM® IN THE USA

The company´s major success at the North American Tea Trade Fair in Las Vegas leads to the foundation of FLORAPHARM® TEA-USA in Maryland. Until today, FLORAPHARM® teas have won more than 23 Tea Champion, 23 Silver and 12 Bronze awards at the World Tea Expo.

QUALITY CONTROLS THROUGH
THE ACCREDITED LABORATORY LEON®

Tea connoisseurs want perfect products. High quality is therefore
one of the most important success factors for FLORAPHARM®,
a quality which is assured through a miltitude of procedures and
inspections. Essential: the inspections conducted by the accredited
food laboratory LEON®.

CONVERSION - DOUBLING OF
THE CAPACITY
AT THE SCHESSLITZ LOCATION

To be able to supply the growing number of customers and to
expand the diversity of offers, FLORAPHARM® constructs new
buildings for the production and storage. Through the procurement
of a COsystem, the tea can be disinsectised without residues
from 2011. In addition, new procedures for the refinement
of the teas are applied.

2011

PRODUCTION OF THE
FIRST PYRAMID TEABAGS

Over the course of its history, FLORAPHARM® has repeatedly
displayed exceptional innovative strength which has provided
the company with decisive competitive advantages. One particularly
impressive example is the development of the pyramid teabag.
Thanks to this innovation, loose tea can also develop its flavour
beautifully in specialist trade quality within the teabag.
The pyramid teabag is biologically degradable.

2012

RELOCATION THE FLORAPHARM®
TEA-USA HEADQUARTERS TO HINESVILLE, GEORGIA 

As was the case in Germany, the first location in the USA
quickly becomes too small. The great popularity of the products
on the US American and Canadian markets necessitates a
relocation to new rooms. Therefore, the production, storage and
administration have been located in Hinesville, Georgia since 2012.

2015

FOUNDATION OF
FLORAGOLD® OWN BRAND

The top-class FLORAPHARM® quality is united with high
functionality into one product through the FLORAGOLD® brand.
FLORAGOLD® is characterised through diverse varieties,
and large tea leaves or fruit pieces which are packaged
into practical pyramid teabags. This makes FLORAGOLD®
an exquisitely enjoyable tea of the exceptional quality
normally only available as loose tea.

2018

25th Anniversary of
FLORAPHARM®

After 25 years of company history, FLORAPHARM® is today

selected as the award winners of the Tea Championship more
than 58 times. With its top-class teas, FLORAPHARM® has
remained the market leader and trendsetter in the specialist
tea trade until today. And we are still investing in the future of
FLORAPHARM®. This year, amongst other things, a new
