FAMILY TRADITION SINCE 1846
Johann Wilhelm Schamel founded a wholesale business with horseradish root in Baiersdorf, Franconia, in 1846. And he started the tradition of collecting recipes and knowledgerelating to all aspects of horseradish and passing them on as a family secret.
But grating the powerful miracle root was a time-consuming and tearful process for the customer. So Johann Jakob Schamel first had the idea of offering ready-to-eat horseradish back in 1914.
More and more customers soon began to appreciate the good Schamel horseradish as a flavourful taste experience and healthy accompaniment to any dish. Schamel quickly became the most sold horseradish brand in Germany. The Schamel family still freshly grind the hand-picked horseradish root daily in the traditional horseradish town of Baiersdorf to this day and use it to produce original Schamel fine horseradish delicacies according to the tried-and-tested recipes.
