Who we are

Dr. Carlo Fleischmann (1892–1965) was a co-owner of Fleischmann & Co., a Swiss company principally trading in grain, and quite successful in the import and export of raw materials. In 1953, Dr. Fleischmann established a foundation in his name to provide financial support for art, culture, and education in Switzerland.
