Lebkuchen Schmidt History
In 1927 in Thuringia, E. Otto Schmidt’s brother accepted a railway car loaded with Lebkuchen specialties as payment from a customer. He sent these items to his brother in Nuremberg to market them. Before selling the contents of the railcar E. Otto Schmidt came upon a revolutionary idea, to create assortments from this consignment and advertise these on a regional and nationwide basis! This is how sales and distribution of assorted Lebkuchen was born. Encouraged and convinced of his success E. Otto Schmidt baked the first Lebkuchen in a small bakery in the southern part of the town in Nürnberg and sold exclusively to private customers.
