40 years of exporting experience

In 1975, the Danish grocer Antoni Andresen founded the wholesaler company Calgros Andresen GmbH in the German city of Flensburg. The company was specialised in buying in bulk and distributing goods to the growing Danish-German border trade, which arose following Denmark’s accession into the European Community in 1972.

Over time, Calgros Andresen GmbH became one of the major wholesalers of food, beverages and tobacco products in Northern Germany. The border trade has always been an important cornerstone of its operations, but the company also developed a global reach with export customers throughout the world.

In 2013, Calgros Andresen GmbH was acquired by the Danish Fleggaard Group, as the company served as a logical expansion step for the group’s activities. The Fleggaard Group’s international orientation has resulted in natural synergies in Calgros, with an increased focus on exports and high growth as a result.

At the end of 2017, activities in Calgros’ export division were moved over to a separate company, called Famobra. The split was a natural consequence of a growing strategic focus on the division’s speciality: the global trade of international, high-turnover goods.
