In the 20 years since   it was founded, Pural Vertriebs GmbH is one of the few wholesalers that has developed into a powerful sales partner for the wholefood trade nationwide. The ongoing extension of the product range with exclusive brands and innovative labels, the takeover of regional distribution companies and the resulting expansion and, not least, the arm of the business dealing with the health food and orgnic trade, including abroad, contributed to the dynamic development of the Pural group of companies. Another contributing factor is that second-generation family members with great commitment have entered the business. Ulrike and Heinz Claus explain the development of their company and  their view of  loyalty to the specialist trade. (Video interview with Ulrike Claus)
