Sustainability has shaped our history from the beginning: Founded in 1862, Julius Meinl became the largest importer of coffee and tea in the Austrian Empire. As the company grew in size, so did the social responsibility of Julius Meinl towards his employees. Julius Meinl has always been at the forefront of social responsibility. We were the first company to introduce child care and a vacation home for our employees in the early years of the 20th century. And we have already provided health care and free doctor consultations in times when this was most unusual.
Consequently, sustainable entrepreneurship at Julius Meinl has always been characterized through:
- Premium quality and best service
- Social engagement
- Open-minded and cosmopolitan behaviour
We have been cherishing these values for five generations of the Meinl family.
