Handicraft and tradition

SONNENTOR was founded in 1988 by Johannes Gutmann, the then only 23-year-old managing director. The young entrepreneur had an extraordinary business idea: he wanted the herbal specialties of organic farmers in Lower Austria's Waldviertel, where he was born and raised, under the logo of the Laughing Sun - a medieval symbol of life and light with 24 rays, still today many farms are decorated - nationwide and internationally. He was far ahead of the current organic trend. An essential feature of his idea was from the outset the extensive processing of raw materials directly to the organic farm, in order to enable the survival of small farms and also to be able to use the experience and care of the farmers and in this way for the consumer the highest degree of responsibility and achieve transparency!
