Ostfriesische Tee Gesellschaft
The origins of LSH
The core of what LSH is today: OTG
From a tea operation founded in 1907, Ostfriesische Tee Gesellschaft has become an internationally operating family business with an innovative and modern corporate structure. What was the spark that ignited this development? Very simple: The belief that in addition to traditional loose tea, the future really belongs to the tea bag.
For over 110 years, OTG has developed a deep sense for customer needs and established itself as a quality leader in the tea business. With the brands Meßmer, MILFORD, OnnO Behrends, and Yasashi, the company takes a leading position in the German and European markets. Approximately 800 staff members follow the highest safety and quality requirements when processing the ingredients from over 90 countries. In doing so, OTG has placed particular importance on the topic of responsibility – because that begins where our tea has its roots, which means with the people who plant, collect, and harvest and with the land on which it grows. OTG has set itself the goal of making a tangible contribution to improving the living and working conditions of tea farmers and promoting responsible conduct throughout the tea market.
