"using nature to create" – this guiding principle characterises the corporate philosophy of the Emsland Group. In harmony with nature, the raw materials obtained are processed to innovative and future-oriented quality products. The most important raw material is the potato, its starch being the basis for the success of the group.

With its individual and creative range of products, know-how and customer-oriented service, the Emsland Group has established itself in the market and is not only Germany's largest producer of potato starch, but also the world's leader in the manufacture of refined starch, proteins, fibres, potato flakes and potato granulates.

For many years alternative raw materials such as peas have also enriched processing. On the basis of these, new starch, protein and fibre products are being created to exploit new markets.
