Tailor-made quality

Sustainability to us means constantly improving services and products. This ensures that our customers are satisfied and that our business enjoys sustainable success.

The food industry places high demands on the products from its suppliers: They should be of high quality, safe and innovative and deliver taste experiences. Almost every year new demands are added. We are meeting these demands with our expertise and reliability. We adjust to the steadily rising customer expectations by conducting frequent surveys and determining quality indicators.

We meet these expectations reliably and with expertise

Many food products require ingredients with defined properties and quality attributes. This may be the precisely defined solubility of a milk powder or the precisely defined melting point of milk fats. The production of such specific ingredients is technically demanding.

Uelzena is a specialist in tailor-made food and thus well prepared to meet these demands. We are able to adjust our production processes precisely to the individual demands of our customers and produce individual ingredients and food products precisely to specification.

More than just a supplier

We can meet product requirements with more than 50 quality parameters without experiencing any problems. This is why renowned and long-term customers often call us a co-producer instead of simply a supplier. For us this is a vote of confidence and proof that our sustainable and successful corporate policy is held in high esteem.


Milk raw materials from Germany and the EU

We source the largest part of the processed raw milk from member dairies and member dairy farms in Lower Saxony, Sachsen-Anhalt and Schleswig-Holstein. Uelzena produces its milk-based ingredients and products exclusively from dairy raw materials from Germany or the European Union.

Frequent audits

Using a risk-based quality concept, the Uelzena Group frequently monitors its suppliers in audits, plant inspections and via questionnaires. There are raw material specifications in place for all raw materials used.

No irradiation of our products

No irradiation is applied to the raw materials used and the products manufactured at Uelzena. The maximum radioactivity values are strictly adhered to.

We do not use genetic engineering

The Uelzena Group does not use any genetically modified organisms (GMO) in the production of our products. This applies to all raw materials, ingredients and any additives that are used. Therefore, our products are not subject to any labelling requirements according to Regulations (EC) No. 1829/2003 and 1830/2003.

No nanotechnology in our production
