In the perpetual rhythm of nature, every year wheat once again provides us with a range of possible uses. The aim of our work is to use, develop and improve them for our customers.

Concentrating on what is most important.

Wheat is one of the most important agricultural commodities. It has been shaping many of our landscapes for hundreds of years. It is a natural product that is both sustainable and high in nutrients. For us, it is the basis for the development of high-performance products. We have been working consistently and sustainably with this universal natural product for 160 years. Innovative capacity, decades of experience, as well as in-depth technical knowledge have made Crespel & Deiters one of Europe’s leading specialists when it comes to the separation of wheat into its constituent parts and their refinement into customised products. The highly functional wheat-based products and application-oriented solutions are used in many food and non-food sectors.

From wheat flour, we obtain high quality wheat starches, proteins, fibres and extracts. In specialised processes, these natural raw materials are refined and further processed into high-functional products. Working closely with our customers, we develop sustainable solutions for optimised and efficient manufacturing of end products.
