The success spreads over the big pond – Trolli goes USA! When founding father Mederer dies in 1984, his son Herbert takes over leadership of the company as chief executive partner. He continues to bring these new crazy fruit gum creations onto the market with unceasing energy. The manufacturing technology too is always at the highest level. “Wurrli
”, the three-layer “Trolli Burger
” and the top seller “Sour Glowworms
” are created. In 1993 Mederer wins the Candy Kettle Award. Trolli has such a success with its hilarious fruit gums that the company starts to focus more strongly on its international business (Spain, China, USA) and the two confectionery manufacturers Efruti and Gummi Bear Factory are integrated. Since 2012 all German locations are marketed under the corporate name TROLLI GmbH.
