Company History

The history of H. & J. BRÜGGEN KG and how it all started

1886

Various types of cereals are now being cultivated in the surrounding region. Buckwheat is chiefly imported from Poland and Russia. The company therefore decides to build a second mill in a seaport. Heinrich Brüggen chooses Lübeck, owing to the optimal water accessibility. In this period, Lübeck is still a free Hanseatic town.
