Our philosophy

The philosophy of the IREKS Group is supported by three pillars, which, at the same time, represent the basis of our daily work: continuity of thought and actions, competence in all areas and working together in partnership.


Vision has led IREKS through more than one and a half centuries of eventful history. It is due to forward-looking investments in innovative technology and in the development of new markets that IREKS, to a great extent, has achieved its present position.

The interaction of tradition and progress leaves its mark on our company and, as a result, on our employees. Everyone endeavours to make good things better and to create enjoyment and variety in repeatedly new facets.

Whoever thinks long-term is aware of his responsibility towards nature, however. Because it is only when we understand the earth as a valuable partner that future generations will be able to live in harmony with it.


To have competence and to develop further in a permanent way, this is what drives the IREKS family all around the globe.

Competence is shown, for example, in the careful choice of all our raw materials, something which already begins during the contracted cultivation of the grain. It is continued in the close to market development of attractive product concepts and recipes with creative marketing ideas as well as the use of the most modern technology in our production and in our laboratories. We also show competence with our service: Our customers are looked after exclusively by highly-qualified experts within their fields.

In this way, everything intermingles in an optimum way and we can offer our customers the services they expect from us. For: 100 % IREKS means 100 % quality. And 100 % safety for the consumer. We regard it as our entrepreneurial responsibility to do business in this way.


All our ideas and recipes would be worth nothing if you did not exist – our partners. Under the motto “Together we are strong”, we take care of our partnerships within and outwith our company – often covering many years and decades.

Thus, we deal with the challenges together and pass on knowledge and experience from generation to generation. To achieve this, every individual in the company makes an important contribution at his workplace to the whole and, with his commitment, makes sure that the IREKS Group will also remain a special company family in the future.
