The modest foundations were laid in Stein, near Fuerth. In the early years, the company founder Erwin Wolf, Dagmar Kreis and a team of 13 staff produced a range of 12 butter pastries.
After its successful launch, our premises in Stein soon become too small. Our business moves to a larger production facility in Nuremberg. New products are created and the range is extended.
Having been with the company since the start, Dagmar Kreis is appointed Managing Director. We now employ 74 full-time staff and 250 part-timers. Our product range has since multiplied.
The wish for its own premises grows as quickly as we grow ourselves. Our new company premises are built in Fuerth, equipped with state-of-the-art production machinery, a high-bay warehouse and several offices.
Following the tragic road death of Dagmar Kreis, Erwin Wolf decides selling to the Martin Braun-Gruppe which is incorporated within the food division of the Oetker-Gruppe.
Our notable growth makes it necessary to build a new complex on the same site. The second facility, that has a capacity for 5 production lines, a deep-fry donut line and a high-bay warehouse for up to 5,000 bays, is commissioned.
By 2009, we are selling our deep-frozen pastries to more than 20 countries. Our products can be enjoyed outside Germany in countries such as Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, the Baltics, Slovenia, Saudi Arabia, Korea, Japan, Australia and the US.
With a new social block for up to 800 staff, we invest in our future. Work on the third production facility starts on the 20th of October 2016. By expanding the location in Fuerth, we are once again showing our commitment to our southern German heritage.
Diversi Foods joins the Martin Braun-Gruppe and becomes our sister firm within the Frozen Bakery Division. The Belgian company predominantly specialises in different types of bread and bread rolls while we focus on puff pastry bakes and snacks. The collaboration means that we now offer a complete range of high-quality deep-frozen bakery goods.
The Oetker-Gruppe is splitting into two.
With the Martin Braun-Gruppe, we are becoming part of
Geschwister Oetker Beteiligungen KG.
