LAWA company history

LAWA started as a small company canteen in Neuhausen in October 1991. In addition to conventional food products, we also manufactured Bohemian-style Hefeknödel dumplings upon request for the dining industry. Requests that would soon become part of the company’s very essence.


Company canteen closed by the trust.


Production resumes at a small bakery (60 sq m) with just two staff members, specialising in Bohemian-style dumplings. The equipment largely consists of self-built or converted used machinery. A direct-marketing system is set up with the help of independent marketers.
