Our company‘s long tradition began with its founding on August 14 1919 by Christian Goedeken Senior. Together with his son, Christian Goedeken Junior, he soon shaped the company into a specialized business for international seafood products.It didn‘t take long after that for the newest offers to be published regularly in a „Fish Newspaper“.
By the 1930‘s, the company was a dependable partner in delivering fresh fish to its customers in handy portions, and ready to cook.
In the 1960‘s, the company became one of the first to import high-quality frozen foods from Asia, and became one of the leading fish and seafood merchants for high-end gastronomy in Germany.
After Christian Goedeken jr. temporarily belonged to the Unilever group, our current owner Karl-Heinz Führer took over the company in 1998, giving it a new structure and orientation. The company also moved to a new location, where the production of high-quality seafood convenience products was expanded.
Today, Christian Goedeken jr. GmbH regularly supplies over 100 wholesale dealers in Germany, and has once again become a real family business based in Germany, with Martin Führer as a fellow partner.
