Wheat starch powder made in Germany
In 1951, 200 tons of wheat starch powder, used worldwide for baking fluffy pastries, are sent from Ibbenbüren to Hull in Great Britain. Ironically, during this time, Crespel & Deiters benefits from business with England and the whole world with a quality promise that was originally issued by the British in 1887 as a warning that indicated inferior goods from Germany. By the middle of the 20th century, “Made in Germany”, which was still often considered an obstruction for export by the end of the 19th century, has long since turned into a sales promotion measure for German products abroad. The Netherlands is also supplied with 1a wheat starch powder from Crespel & Deiters. What is more, as of 1956, it is also exported to Egypt, Belgium, Hong Kong, Israel, Siam, Venezuela, South-West Africa and Syria.
