From a small health food store, which opened its doors in the heart of Zurich in 1978, Madal Bal has steadily grown into a multifaceted, international company. Today we have 350 employees in 10 countries.
How everything started:
The founder of the company, K. A. Beyer, has always been fascinated by alternative lifestyles. In 1972, while he was studying psychology, he met Sri Chinmoy and began practicing meditation. After Beyer had finished his studies, he opened his first health food store, which Sri Chinmoy named 'Madal Bal'.
The human focus:
Our primary goal has always been to manage our company focusing on people, be it client or employee, rather than on the pure maximisation of profit. This idea is reflected in all of Madal Bal's business branches.
Our business activities:
Today Madal Bal is a healthy, steadily expanding company. Successful trend shops rank as our main business in Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Italy and the Czech Republic. The second largest pillar is our own brand of tools, which is mainly sold in Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary. Our wholesale and retail trade of tea and health food as well as gifts and utility ware of all kinds add to our varied and wide field of activities.
The central idea:
All our business branches are connected through one central idea: We wish to offer our customers a variety of practical and healthy products at good value. Our ultimate goal: the satisfaction of our customers
