Save the date BIOFACH trade fair 2019

Mestemacher GmbH has been an exhibitor at

BioFach trade fair from the beginning!

The company has promoted organic farming since 1985.

Mestemacher was the first wholesale baker to deliver fresh wholemeal rye bread with refined ingredients as a packaged product to food retail trade’s bread shelves.

When stored unopened, the packed bread slices remain fresh for up to 6 months.

As a large bakery, Mestemacher achieved this by pasteurising the breads after packing. Before baking, the organic grain is freshly ground in our own mill.

Mestemacher is the only special bread bakery in the world that is committed to equality between men and women in both business and society. The initiator is the shareholder, Prof Dr Ulrike Detmers, member of the management board and spokeswoman of the Mestemacher Group.

In 2001, Prof. Dr. Ulrike Detmers started activities to promote equality between men and women and to reconcile work and family life. The Mestemacher “Daycare Centre Prize” was awarded as the first equal opportunity prize. In 2002, she initiated the “FEMALE MANAGER OF THE YEAR“ MESTEMACHER PRIZE. The winner receives the valuable silver stallion “OECONOMIA” and 5,000 EURO prize money for social purposes. In 2006, she initiated the “Top Father of the Year” Mestemacher prize. The prize money for the distinguished fathers is 2 x 5,000 EURO and 2,500 EURO for the special prize winner. The latest award launched by her is the Mestemacher “LIVING TOGETHER” award, with 10,000 EURO prize money. The sense of community in society is emphasized. All award ceremonies are celebrated annually at top locations hosted with many guests.

“With the charity campaign ‘Together against Hunger’, we have been supporting Welthungerhilfe with a donation of € 10,000 out of deep conviction for 8 years now,” emphasises Prof Dr Ulrike Detmers, shareholder, member of the management board and spokeswoman of the Mestemacher Group. Of 200,000 tasty organic breads sold, Mestemacher donates 5 cent per package.

Within the context of the Mestemacher charity campaign “Together against hunger” for Deutsche Welthungerhilfe e.V., the cheque handover of the €10,000 donation is planned for the Biofach trade fair.
