The Swiss Bakery – with a tradition going back to 1877.
The company history of HUG started over 130 years ago in a bakery in Lucerne. The foundation stone for success was laid by Josef Hug-Meyer in 1877 with the discovery of the zwieback or rusk. Since then countless other biscuits such as Läckerli, Willisauer-Ringli, DAR-VIDA Crackers, biscuits for restaurants and hospitality, frozen snacks and Bricelets have been added, partly by company take-overs. The acquisition of Wernli AG fromTrimbach in 2008 enabled optimum expansion of the range to include biscuits containing chocolate. Choco Petit Beurre, Japonais and Jura Wafers were invented at Wernli.
HUG AG is a Swiss family company through and through: with its three locations Malters, Willisau and Trimbach it is at home in the heart of Switzerland and is managed now in the fourth generation by Andreas and Werner Hug.
The recipe for the quality and good taste of our products is in the hands of the people who work with them. True to our motto:
Sincere, entrepreneurial and conscientious.
