Organic and conventional farming of food crops is our core business.
KTG Agrar SE cultivates over 46.000 hectares of farmland for organic and conventional farming of food crops.
The Wittibreut Branch in Bavaria is a strategically important production and logistic location of the KTG Group.
The KTG Group supplies clean food to the partners of the food retail sector throughout Germany and even beyond. An important KTG branch is located in the Bavarian town of Wittibreut.
This location was acquired in the context of the acquisition of Bio-Zentrale Naturprodukte GmbH and has since been expanded consistently, today employing 70 people.
Mr Huber, Head of Logistics and Scheduling, has been worked here since 1989. In 2013, he and his team handled over 79,000 pallets on the 50,000+ square metre site.
It comprises the “Old Bakehous”, which was formerly used for baking bread and other goods. Since the restoration and conversion, it has served as a venue for functions and conferences. Once a year, for instance, it is the meeting point of Bio-Zentrale’s Product Range Committee, which consists of sales representatives, employees from marketing, product development and logistics as well as the management. The Committee decides on Bio-Zentrale’s broad product range and its future composition.
We also operate a state-of-the-art production facility for muesli and fruit bars in Wittibreut, which allows us to process our produce into delicious muesli and fruit bars. Our seeds and cereals are processed and packaged in Windhag, a small town near in Wittibreut. Besides a small industrial grain and spice mill, we also use a pressure chamber to process the grains. We have deliberately chosen this process to avoid chemical treatment, which is the normal procedure used in the industry. This allows us to produce high-quality artisan products offering good value. For 2014, we have created additional capacities to produce two new muesli and fruit bar concepts for our “Bio-Zentrale” and “Die Landwirte” brands. Thanks to the investments made in 2013, we are able to produce bars in all common cutting widths.
Going forward, we will continue to invest in the strategic expansion of the Wittibreut and Windhag facilities. Among the planned investments are new packaging facilities and the integration into the KTG-wide inventory management system.
We are one of the largest employers in the Wittibreut / Ulbering region. Many employees have worked here for 20 years or more. In my talks with employees, I often hear how happy they are to have joined the KTG family in early 2013. On the one hand, it means futureproof jobs, and on the other hand, it inspires them to actively put the motto “from the field to the plate” into action.
