The Company – Who we are…
Back in 1899, Johann Braun, the great-great-grandfather of Günther Braun, founded a bakery in Schillingsfürst in Middle Franconia/Bavaria. The bakery was then run by master bakers as a family business for another three generations for 110 years. In the 5th generation, master baker and business economist Günther Braun decided to give up the bakery and start a wholesale business for seeds. This resulted in GB-Foods GmbH based in Schillingsfürst.
Through years of experience in various craft and industrial bakeries, we know what matters in terms of raw seeds and therefore offer a wide range of bakery and specialty seeds as well as nutritional supplements in organic and conventional quality.
In addition to wholesaling and retailing, we also serves industrial and craft bakers as well as oil mills in Germany and throughout Europe. From self-cultivation and direct import, laboratory testing to cleaning, germ reduction, mixing or packaging: we offer the right solution for your very special requirements!
Philosopy – What we do…
When it comes to our seeds, we don’t make any compromises – because food is trusted goods! As a retailer of baked and special seeds, we are aware of our great responsibility, so only flawless goods leave our house. For our customers, we are constantly developing our product range and range of services.
We do not only look at the markets as target groups, for us the markets are people. As a family business, we personal contact is very important to us – both with our clients and with our business partners and producers in the producer countries. We believe that trust and years of business relationships can only succed this way.
In order to be able to guarantuee the high and constant quality of our products, we source our seeds directly from the producers in the respective countries of origins without any detours.
Their expertise and many years of experience in cultivation and processing have a high priority for us. By close personal contact experience, know-how and the requirements placed on our products are regularly exchanged.
Also when transporting, we always pay attention to the observance of professional conditions.

Warehouse and Packaging
Nico had already been with us for some time in 2021 and then unfortunately fell out for a few months. When he was able to start with us again at the beginning of 2022, we were delighted. Because with his friendliness, his diligence and his reliability, he has made himself very popular and indispensable in our team.
Stella Braun’s mother also helps out in the family business. Busy as a bee, she buzzes around in production and provides us with translation assistance for our Ukrainian employees with her knowledge of Russian.
Officially, Benoit is not considered an employee (anymore). A few years ago he did an internship of several weeks with us through a French exchange project. Since then we have been in contact and Benoit helps us with the French translation of specifications and our homepage.
Viktoriia Dovzhenko und Marijana Kutscheruk
At the end of April our Ukrainians started their work with us: Vikaa and Marijana. The communication runs with hands and feet or with Russian translation, but we are glad about this support and the joy that these two women bring.
