The Hans Adler OHG is a family-owned business based in the Black Forest town of Bonndorf. Since 1920 Adler has been manufacturing selected Black Forest sausage and ham specialities. Adler Schwarzwald is one of the largest meat processing companies in the south-western German state of Baden-Württemberg and a founding member of the Association of the Black Forest Ham Manufacturers .
In 1920 Michael and Margarethe Adler took over the former Hugel Inn and the butchery in Lindenstraße in Bonndorf. Due to the construction of the dam at the nearby Schluchsee reservoir in 1929 the sales volume increased as Adler catered the dining facility for the construction workers. From 1935 on Hans Adler, Michael and Margarethe’s son, and his wife ran the business and extended the range of products. Adler began to distribute its canned products, e.g. the well-known Bonndorfer Würstchen . In the 1950s the company started to sell Black Forest smoked specialities via mail order.
