Mühlenchemie – the Perfectionist in Flour Treatment
As the international market leader in the standardization, improvement and fortification of flour, Mühlenchemie meets the increasing demand from the worldwide milling industry for individualized raw material concepts.
Key factors in flour production are efficiency, innovation and diversification. In order to position themselves successfully in the local and global markets, mills have to tailor their product concepts specifically to their customers’ requirements. The downstream industries expect flours with precisely defined properties for use in specific applications. To enable this, we offer appropriate systems of active ingredients and the necessary technical support.
Creative, visionary, and always just that much more personal…
We are everything – except just an ordinary supplier. As an upgrading specialist for flours, we look back on nearly 100 years of company tradition. “Close to the customer”: that is our most important motto. Because nothing is more motivating than to fulfil customers’ wishes successfully.
