The Kondimafabrik AG was the first and only large-scale producers in southern German country with tough competition in the north.
Since the Rohmassen has always and still a lot sooner than today to seasonal items involved was very soon in addition to the production of fruit and ice cream canned begun. Shortly afterwards came as a logical consequence of the preparation of the nuts and almonds for the Rohmassen the preparations. The nougat production was in the late 20s.
When the war began relatively quickly set a shortage of raw materials from abroad, so that the Rohmassenherstellung largely had to be set. Instead, a special vitaminreiche catering to supply the Navy, particularly the U-boat crew, as canned produce.
After the ausgebombt completely Kondima 1944, adopted after the end of the war in the manufacture of the complete product range, added to chocolate, again.
The name changed Kondimafabrik AG, after inclusion of new associates in the 30 years up to 1986, the exit Year of the Family Heiden, in the name Kondima works Engelhardt & Heiden OHG.
