Hammonia is the Latin name of the city of Hamburg.
This is where we live.
This is where we work. Our name stands for our bond with the Hanseatic city.

Hammonia is our commitment to the Hanseatic values of open-mindedness, competence and trust – combined with a centuries-long history of trade and action. Although we are a young company, we can already look back on many years of experience in raw material sourcing and the production of oleochemical products and natural waxes.

In addition to logistics and the assurance of quality standards, we provide the necessary knowledge about the entire range of oleo chemical products and their applications in specialized industrial sectors. HOC knows the relevant markets down to the last detail. Expertise in distribution is our strength.

The REACH Regulation

The REACH Regulation, which entered into force in 2007 (EC 1907/2006), has a special significance for all companies dealing with substances, mixtures and products, in particular companies in the chemical industry. REACH stands for the Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals.

REACH regulates the manufacture, import and handling of all chemicals and their products in the European Community, unless other rules and regulations have priority, such as biocides or pesticides.

Of course, the products supplied by HOC are all registered accordingly by the manufacturers.

The GROFOR Association

HOC is a member of one of the most important associations in our industry: The German Association of the Wholesale of Oils, Fats and Oil Raw Materials, or GROFOR for short. It is an amalgamation of around 150 companies from the trading areas all around vegetable and animal oils and fats, oil raw materials and fatty acids. GROFOR members are traders, producers, intermediaries, agents and service providers from all over Europe. GROFOR offers an international arbitration tribunal composed of merchants and lawyers specializing in GROFOR conditions and industry-specific trade practices.
