Preserve Tradition. Embrace Innovation.

A family business in its second generation.

The foundation for a successful enterprise

Stephan Carrière, founder of Carrière GmbH Committed To Taste worked for more than 30 years in the fruit juice sector. From 1977 till 1982 Stephan Carrière was Export Manager at CITROSUCO PAULISTA in Brazil and CEO of Citrus Coldstore in Belgium until 1983.

1988 Stephan Carrière decided to build up his independence and founded the Carrière GmbH & Co. KG. He focused on the import and distribution of fruit juices and concentrates. With the time passing, further business segments were added to the portfolio and developed successfully.

Stephan Carrière sold Carrière GmbH & Co. KG in the year 2000 and founded his new company Carrière GmbH Committed To Taste in the same year. After he passed away in October 2001 the business has been continued by Dorothee and Moritz Carrière. Since the establishment of the new company our Team has steadily grown.

The expansion of our product range with Tropicals, Fairtrade, Organic and IQF brought additional growth and success.

As of 1st January 2009 Moritz Carrière took over the family business and became President & CEO of Carrière GmbH Committed To Taste.

At the beginning of 2010, Carrière launched new logos and updated its internet presence. The creation of the Aroma and Derivate Department swiftly led to an excellent market presence. Since then, these products have been successfully distributed under our "Thums Up®“ brand. In 2011, the Middle and East European Countries Department was established as a new profit center. Today, Carrière has a remarkable clientele in these markets going as far as Kazakhstan. The growth in personnel continued in 2012 with the necessary strengthening of our Logistics Department. Meanwhile, the Carrière team consists of 11 people who will, professionally and highly motivated, take care of all our business partners.
