In 1879 the Darbo family began producing fruit jams, fruit syrups and exquisite fruit liqueurs. Many of which won numerous awards.
During World War I the Darbo factory in Görz was seriously damaged. The company had to relocate to Stans in Tyrol. Despite the setback, the Darbo family rebuilt the company and produced fine jams and bottling honey again.
They were helped by the fact that Tirol was enjoying a small increase in tourism even in the 1920s. Visitors from near and far would be wowed by Darbo’s delicious products.
Darbo steadily gained market share and expanded its range in both the foodservice and food retail industry. Darbo became the market leader for jams and honeys in Austria, not least because of its loyal customer base.
After decades of running the company, Klaus Darbo handed the reins over in 2009 to his son Martin. Martin is now the fifth generation of the family to run the business, which he does alongside his uncle Adolf. Darbo is now a well-known medium-sized family firm that operates at four sites in Tyrol. They produce high-quality products for restaurants and hotels as well as for the foodservice and food processing industries.
