In 1970 the company CR3-Kaffeeveredelung M. Hermsen was founded. Under the management of Manfred Hermsen, the company has become a leading supplier of decaffeination and steam-treatment services.
Construction of the CO2 decaffeination plant
In 1988, after filing a patent application for a decaffeination process using natural, liquid carbon dioxide, a corresponding plant was built at the company site.
To this day, this particularly gentle decaffeination process is only offered by CR3.
Expansion of the facilities
Between 1997 and 2004, CR3's decaffeination plants were modernized and expanded. Today CR3 operates highly automated and efficient manufacturing plants with high production capacity.
CR3-Kaffeeveredelung M. Hermsen GmbH celebrates its 50th anniversary. Since its foundation CR3 established itself as a recognized partner in the coffee industry and looks forward to a continued successful future.
