Experts in food ingredients

We have been specializing in milk-based ingredients for more than 60 years. Our customers include many of the key players from the food industry.

Since the company was founded, butter and skimmed milk have been part of our production portfolio. Other products have been continuously added to our range over the decades. Since 2013, we have combined the production and sales activities for all ingredients produced within the Uelzena Group for the food industry in a separate business division: Uelzena Ingredients.

As specialists in milk, we focus on the product groups of milk powder, milk fat and other milk products including sweetened condensed milk and cream.

Suppliers to European branded goods manufacturers

We deliver our products to companies from the baked goods, confectionery, ice cream, delicatessen, dessert and other food products industries throughout Europe. Partners from the wholesale trade also deliver and export our ingredients all over the world.

Our products are either made at one of our own production sites in Uelzen, Bismark or Warmsen or in one of Europe’s largest spraying towers for skimmed milk powder which we have operated together with three dairy partners in Neumünster since 2014. This high-tech plant has an annual capacity of 60,000 tons, all of which is marketed by us.

Expertise in raw materials and technology

Our expert knowledge has been acquired over many years and we apply a comprehensive technology range to the processing and production of dairy ingredients. Some of the technologies are unique in Germany, for example our fractionation plant for milk fat where we employ a merely physical process for the separation of milk fat into individual fractions. Recombining the individual fractions enables us to produce butter and butterfat with precisely defined melting properties and melting points.

Safe products and processes

We are a premium supplier to many global players in the food industry. In order to maintain this status, our company is frequently audited by our customers according to their own strict requirements and constantly re-certified according to national and international standards including ISO and IFS.
