Innovation based on conviction and passion

Modern technologies and processes

For MEGGLE, research and development have always been more than just a means to an end – they are essential drivers of the future. That’s why we strive to develop, produce and sell products and services of the highest quality in each of our business areas. Our customers’ satisfaction is what matters. To ensure this, we cooperate closely with you and the application engineers of the respective end product segments – both in developing and implementing solutions and concepts. The result speaks for itself – long-term, shared business success.

The basis for this is our innovative manufacturing processes and state-of-the-art production facilities, taking into account the latest scientific findings. They ensure maximum flexibility, cutting-edge technology and premium quality. There are also sustainable collaborations with industrial partners who meaningfully complement our activities with their product range, know-how or technological capabilities.

„There is also great potential in the optimisation of carriers in the future – this is both confirmation and motivation for our daily work.“

Marcus Hormuth, COO

State-of-the-art laboratories and research facilities

Thanks to our long-established application laboratories in Wasserburg am Inn (Germany), São Paulo (Brazil) and Shanghai (China) and, above all, with the establishment of our own research laboratory ‘Innovation & Formulation’ in Gauting near Munich, we offer the best conditions for the development of functional products Excipients as well as for supporting customers in the (re)formulation of products, problem solving and also for offering service measurements. We also maintain close cooperation with scientists from universities and technical colleges. We support and supervise numerous research internships as well as theses and doctoral theses.

High functionality

MEGGLE develops functional semi-finished products and ready-to-use B2B products that enable a wide variety of applications in the areas of Nutrition, Dairy, Bakery & Sweet and Savoury. The broad portfolio is supplemented by versatile single ingredients and highly functional compound solutions in order to combine customer and end user requirements into a perfect result.

Needs-orientated solutions

Customers benefit from our years of experience in the innovative development of new products to open up open market opportunities and implement current megatrends through creative solutions. We support our partners across the entire value chain through solution-orientated consultation and the development of tailor-made recipes based on our technological know-how in the area of milk and plant-based raw materials. We source the raw materials for producing our semi-finished products and compounds for the food ingredients sector exclusively from intact ecosystems. This creates products with the highest quality and functionality.

Consumer Products

Competent developers

Product development for MEGGLE Consumer Products takes place at our headquarters in Wasserburg. Our development team can draw on a wide range of know-how – chefs, dairy technologists, food technologists as well as laboratory and sensory experts work hand in hand here. Thanks to the close integration of marketing, market research and product development, we can identify customer needs, develop innovation concepts extremely efficiently and translate these into concrete products.

Innovative products

In order to always develop contemporary products of the highest quality and with maximum consumer benefit, we traditionally attach great importance to enjoyment, natural ingredients and full-bodied taste. The field of competence of MEGGLE product development is completed by special knowledge in the area of gentle manufacturing processes, which we continually optimise. In addition to well-spiced preparations, butters and mixed fats as well as fillings for our baked goods, we also develop vegan products at our headquarters in Wasserburg in close and trusting cooperation with the development departments of our national and international production sites.
