A passionate entrepreneurial family with great foresight

For the Adler family the love of the Black Forest and the awareness of quality combined with hearty enjoyment are of great importance. Since 1920 ADLER has been manufacturing selected Black Forest sausage and ham in the picturesque Hochschwarzwald (upper Black Forest) and ever since has represented the culinary tradition of an entire region.

Pioneering in Black Forest ham

It is from here that ADLER’s most famous recipe for Black Forest ham commenced its journey throughout the world. ADLER is the synonym for Black Forest ham. Peter Adler was a pioneer in creating the Original Black Forest ham. Still today this is considered an obligation to take on responsibility for meeting high quality standards.

Pure air, rich aroma

Since its beginnings, ADLER has been situated in Bonndorf in the Hochschwarzwald (upper Black Forest), located 800 m above sea level and climatically situated in a prime position with good air.

Serving an honorable tradition

Today, Adler is one of the region’s most important employers with approximately 270 employees at the headquarters in Bonndorf and Achern. Permanently focused on quality and craftsmanship, ADLER places particular importance upon the training of qualified staff, both in the industrial and the commercial sector.

Ultimately, the name ADLER stands for a high level of competence along the entire value chain, from slaughter right up to the final consumers. In the past and also to this very day.
