The Windel Group story begins in the year 1900 with a young merchant fulfilling his dream of owning his own wholesale business. At home in their kitchen in the 1970s, Mechthild and Alfred Windel come up with the idea of sweet gifts. Over the decades, this evolves into a globally operating group of companies dedicated to innovation.
