The Company – Who we are…

Back in 1899, master baker Karl Braun, the great-grandfather of Günther Braun, founded a bakery in Schillingsfürst in Middle Franconia / Bavaria. The bakery was run by master bakers for over three generations for 110 years as a family business. In the 4th generation, master baker and business economist Günther Braun decided to give up the bakery and start a wholesale business for seeds and animal feed. This resulted in GB-Foods GmbH, headquartered in Schillingsfürst.

Through years of experience in various bakeries – from craft to industrial bakeries – we know what truely matters in terms of raw seeds and therefore offer a wide range of baking and special seeds in biological and conventional quality.

In addition to the wholesale and retail trade, industrial and craft bakers, our family business also serves oil mills in Germany and throughout Europe. From self-cultivation and direct import to laboratory testing to cleaning, germ reduction, mixing or packaging: we offer everything you, as a customer, want. We also 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.

Direct Importing

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.
