Who we are






As a specialist in functional nutrition, we help people to maintain a balanced diet and improve their well-being. So far we have been developing and marketing products for weight reduction, weight management and high-protein nutrition for more than thirty years. We are growing continuously, also abroad. Our products are available at over 12,000 sales outlets in Germany as well as in more and more European countries such as Switzerland, Austria, Bulgaria, Italy and others.

Innovation, reliability and respect determine our actions.

We create innovative, functional foods out of nutritional trends. Our aim is to provide our customers with a consistent high quality and pleasure. We achieve this through our stable partner network, which uses state-of-the-art technology and preferably produces in Germany or Austria. Fairness and open dialogue with our customers, employees and partners are a matter of course for us as a sign of respect.
