Hamburg Tradition

Rud. Kanzow. Fish Importers since 1890.

Over the past 125 years our product range has been continuously enhanced following the high demands of our customers. What has remained are the business relations with our suppliers which have grown over many years and now already span generations.

What persisted are the business relations to our suppliers – relations which have developed over many years and have lasted for several generations now.

Thanks to these trusting partnerships Rud.
