The Hafner family originated in Switzerland and migrated to France, where they settled next to Lyon (Lyons), the heart of the most famous French culinary region. In 1929 Johanes Hafner purchased the company which would bear his name. Andre Hafner, Johanes’s son, carried on to manufacture cookies of all sorts, Yule logs, and a variety of products requested by his customers. In 1968 Andre Hafner doubled the size of the company and it became known as a quality pie shell / tartlet plant. His son Pierre-Andre Hafner followed in his steps. In 1989 Pierre-Andre Hafner, Johanes’ grandson, took over the company and continued the legacy of quality products. In 1990 Pierre-Andre Hafner inaugurated an office with a warehouse in Atlanta, GA to service the domestic US market through a network of distributors. By 1996 Pierre-Andre Hafner once again double the size of the production facility by adding an industrial sized manufacturing line of Scottish Dough Sponge Cake products and Kosher items. The factory uses several quality control tools (HACCP control, supplier control) in order to guarantee the best quality. The Atlanta, GA main US distribution center also expanded. New and original product lines from other European and North American manufacturers were imported to satisfy the ever more discriminating American consumers. Our lines are extremely successful with hotels, caterers and bakeries. The Hafner USA lines have made a name for themselves in the US for their top notch quality, elegance, resistance to humidity, ease of use (all items are baked and ready to fill), one year shelf life, dry storage and the convenient food service packaging.

The tarts were slightly larger than I anticipated, but were of the same quality as expected.
The only suggestion I have: Wrap them better and stamp “FRAGILE” all over the shipping box. Many were cracked – some even unusable.
I stuffed them with “Sherried Mushrooms” and crab & egg mixture. Later I used them for dessert and filled them with chocolate mousse. Will definitely order these again. If they are kept in Tupperware, they keep for about a year.
