These values are the recurring principles that guide our day-to-day business. They define the way we inter-departmentally work together, improve our processes, develop ourselves personally and professionally, and assure Nordgetreide's success.
All teams across Nordgetreide work based on experience, key figures and in the understanding that continuous optimisation is what propels us forward as individuals, as a community and as a company.

Lübeck is where it all began: Founded in 1966 as a maize mill, the Nordgetreide headquarter on the banks of the river Trave is now one of the most important locations for grain manufacturing in Germany. It is home to the company's own maize and husking mill. Since 1988, cornflakes have been produced in Lübeck-Schlutup. Along with the continuous expansion of our core business, we upgraded the Lübeck factory in 2016 to include a modern cornflakes' production facility. This allows us to meet the requirements of our industry customers flexibly, individually and efficiently.
