Contributing to the Future of Food

The Challenges We Face

BAADER is facing significant challenges: changing values and demographic and technological changes are continuously leading to new requirements and solutions in the food industry.

New eating habits, conscious consumers, technological trends and developments in particular also offer opportunities – for food processing, the food industry, society and consumers. For this reason, we are constantly aligning our strategy to impact the future of food.

Sustainability: Our Actions Premise

All food starts as raw resources like fish, poultry, meat, fruit, vegetables, etc. Our planet holds many treasures, but resources are finite. Ecological and social sustainability and a clear commitment to conserving resources are an integral part of our strategy. Efficient and resource-friendly machinery is our contribution to a conservative food supply. We design our facilities, systems and process solutions to make a sustainable value chain. Our industry-leading ‘Zero Waste’ initiative targets hidden waste that aims to introduce untapped resources into the value chain with the right processing methods.

Our add-on chilling technology further supports sustainability goals by maximizing yield, reducing defects, increasing shelf life, reducing water use and eliminating the use of ice thereby improving transport efficiency for a lower carbon footprint.

Our Expertise Starts and Ends with Optimal Product Handling

We are not only best in class when it comes to food processing solutions; we also know how to refine and add value. Product quality is a primary focus when developing our equipment and processing solutions. We know how to process gently and ensure the highest standards of animal welfare, hygiene, food safety and quality in all phases.

And our customers are ensured of their business case as we guarantee the best return on their investment. We do this by being in the region for the region across the globe, with a qualified and robust service network and spare part supply chain and our overall partnership approach for entire wall-to-wall solutions.
