Everything starts with a good idea.
And with people who stand up for it.

Starting out in 1896 as a sugar factory, Milchwerke Mittelelbe is now part to the very successful Krüger Group (since 1991). Together we combined good ideas and modern technologies and thus formed a business concept more than 4200 employees participate in.

Always keeping an eye on current market needs, we adapt to client and consumer demands: for us quality and diversity go hand in hand with competitiveness, which is strengthened by our strategic partnerships with universities and colleges. For you we discover new sources of raw material for manufacturing functional food products and to use the extensive know how of our staff processing traditional ingredients.

Our formula for success is the prosperous combination of proven and new means in the food industry: high quality raw material, innovative technologies and long term proven expert knowledge. This way only we are able to support your success in every way.


For more than a century pursuing quality and performance is what drives us. From founding the sugar factory in Stendal back in 1896 until today.
