BÖCKER – Your sourdough specialist – The best-quality baked goods for 111 years
We are a fourth generation, family-run, family- owned company that is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of natural sourdough products. BÖCKER offers solutions to bakeries of all sizes that want to offer their customers flavorful baked goods through sourdough application. The focus is on simple, convenient and reliable dough processing, as well as on the associated quality improvement.
Pioneering the industry from the very beginning, company founder Ernst Böcker developed the first fermentation processes at the headquarters in Minden in 1910. These are still considered the standards for reliable sourdough processing today. His first natural culture sourdough starters became the cornerstone for many patents, such as pumpable sourdough pastes or gluten free oat bread. Today the range includes more than 160 different sourdough products, special baking mixes and ready-baked gluten free and vegan baked goods.
Expertise, advice and experience with everything sourdough!
Over 180 specialists at four locations work at BÖCKER in the development, production and sales of the product range. They work passionately on innovations in cooperation with universities and institutes, develop new processes for the bakery trade, and offer expertise to the industry through the Ernst Böcker Sauerteig Institute. BÖCKER sourdough experts evaluate bread according to the DLG system, analyze sourdoughs and develop recipes in line with market trends.
