Inzersdorfer Nahrungsmittelwerke Ges. m. b. H. was a food company based in Vienna-Inzersdorf(Inzersdorfer-Werk), founded around 1870 by the Eisler and Breden families as the “First Austrian Military Canning Factory”. In 2003, the company was sold to Vivatis Holding AG and production in Vienna-Inzersdorf was discontinued, but the Inzersdorfer brand was retained.
At the turn of the century, the k.k. exclusively privileged conserve and soup extract factory Ig. Eisler & Comp. passed into the ownership of the president of Anglobank Ltd. London-Vienna. After the merger with the group, the company now had factories in Poland, Italy, Hungary and Spain in addition to the parent plant. Around 1918, the group fell apart with the collapse of the monarchy, leaving only the parent plant.
In 1939, the Kommerzialrat Hermann Voith and his sister Else Pecher took over the company. Due to its focus on military supplies, the company benefited from the Second World War, but was confiscated and cleared out by the Red Army at the end of the war.
During the reconstruction, the company concentrated on durable food for household and gastronomy and profited from the travel and camping wave in the 1950s and 1960s. In 1980, the company received the State Award and thus the right to bear the Federal Coat of Arms in business dealings. In 1999, a net turnover of 500 million shillings was achieved with 140 employees.
Until 2003, the company was managed by the G. Voith and K. and M. Pecher families as Ges. m. b. H.. Then Inzersdorfer was sold to Vivatis and incorporated into its branded goods distributor and marketer Maresi. In the course of the takeover, production in Vienna-Inzersdorf was discontinued at the end of November 2003 after 130 years, and the factory was purchased by the City of Vienna. The historically valuable parts of the building are to be preserved and incorporated into a residential and hotel project.
Inzersdorfer Nahrungsmittelwerke Ges. m. b. H. was the market leader in Austria for spreads and ready meals. Soups, vegetables, compotes and jams are also produced under this brand.
Since the takeover, the spreads and ready meals have been produced at the Landhof company in Linz and at the GOURMET GROUP in St. Pölten.
