Quality

Quality from field to fork

We process around 80,000 tonnes of grain a year at Rettenmeier Mühle. Raw materials account for around 80% of the quality of the final product, so we apply a thorough quality-oriented purchasing management system while supporting our suppliers in quality assurance.

We use state-of-the-art technology, extensive experience, the utmost hygienic standards and constant quality assurance in our own labs to ensure that our products have the qualities required for further processing by bakers and food manufacturers.

We provided our customers with support in every aspect of quality assurance in processing – this is important to us as our success relies to a large part on the success of our customers. We think outside the box, acting in professional and industrial associations in the field for production standards that are far more stringent than the statutory requirements – standards such as the Verband Deutscher Mühlen (German milling association) hygiene policy that we have adopted at Rettenmeier Mühle.
