About Owners
Hamburg Amerikanische Packetfahrt A.G. - Hamburg-Amerika Linie - HAPAG, Hamburg

Established in 1847. Also called HAPAG, Hamburg-America Line). In 1970, the company merged with the Norddeutscher Lloyd (North German Lloyd) of Bremen to establish the current-day Hapag-Lloyd, which itself is owned by TUI AG. HAPAG for the first time, introduced a sandwich to their passengers with meat in it. This inspired later businessmen to sell this (until then) unknown food in the US, creating the 'Hamburger'.
