INNOVATION BASED ON EXPERIENCE

Trust in our expertise as contract manufacturers

Our family has been processing dry foods for more than a century. We have been incorporating this knowledge about raw materials and how to process them into our contract manufacturing and recipes since Meitron Trockenmischung GmbH was founded in 1996.

As an OEM, we specialise in customer-oriented contract mixes and fillings for industry and stand for quality craftsmanship – also as a full-service provider for private label products. We now process all forms of dry food products, with the exception of spices, into high-quality food and supplements with commitment, expertise and care. From raw material procurement and storage to delivery, your product is in very good hands with us at all times.
