Bühler focus on consumer foods with new segment
Germar Wacker will lead the new segment Consumer Foods
Bühler is addressing the global food market with a newly created segment: Consumer Foods.
Since its acquisition in January 2018, Haas has shown remarkable results in a very short time. The new organisation, which combines all consumer foods related technologies and solutions in one segment, is the logical next step to serve customers from one single point of origin.
By combining the current chocolate, nuts, bakery and coffee business with the Haas business, the new organisation will be able to support customers even better in these global markets through simplified interfaces, integrated solutions, innovation, and services to produce wafers, biscuits, baked goods, chocolate, pralines, filled products, nuts, coffee, and more.
“With this move, we can create significant value for our customers and position ourselves as clear leader in the growing consumer foods market,” says Bühler CEO Stefan Scheiber.
“With this new, strong business pillar in the field of processing technologies in consumer foods, we can offer specialised knowledge as well as research and development to the needs of our customers in that sector,” said Germar Wacker, who is currently CEO of Haas and will lead the new segment. As a consequence, Germar Wacker will become member of the Executive Board of the Bühler Group.
The new organisation will become effective January 1, 2019.
