We have a history of innovation

Since 1853, we have stood for the highest quality. Our past makes us proud, but our eyes are always on the future. Because the same is true today as back then: only those who drive forward innovation can shape the products of tomorrow.

The future of enjoyment begins today

In our Consumer Research Lab, we are already thinking about how we will cook, dine and drink tomorrow. Here we work on topics for the future such as connected cooking – or how our sharpest knives will never need to be resharpened again. Quality and digitalization go hand in hand for us: for high-quality, functional and aesthetic products.

Quality that knows no limits

We are always looking for ways to make our products even more efficient, durable and functional. In doing so, our team looks very closely at surfaces, materials and possible functions. Digitalization is also helping us make cooking easier and safer for the future – such as by equipping our products with sensors.

Together for the best possible result

To achieve sophisticated results, our Consumer Innovation Lab works as a team with Strategic Marketing, Design and Manufacturing from the outset. But we also continually sharpen our view to the outside world: we work closely with industry partners and start-ups, and always have our finger on the pulse.

Solutions to suit every taste

We maintain constant dialog with our customers, understand their needs and are well-informed of the developments in the market. This allows us to work with our teams within the various specialist areas on both standardized and customized solutions.

Coffee machines that highlight opportunities

Wherever our coffee machines are used, they become an integral part of an individual ecosystem. They generate data that enables completely new business and operator models such as “pay per cup”.  Data availability also offers great opportunities in day-to-day business – from demand-oriented adaptation of the beverage range and recipe variation to procurement and machine maintenance. With a flexible infrastructure, agile development teams and strategic advice on the interpretation of data, we support our customers in all these steps.

Robotics (My App Café)

German inventive spirit meets German top quality: The start-up My App Café from Pfinztal near Karlsruhe came up with the idea of a café bar where barista robots serve freshly made coffee in an efficient and ever-friendly way, in just seconds. Thanks to our expertise in the areas of hardware and software, we were able to help the founders turn their project into reality.
