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.

Team / Employees
Günther Braun founded the family business in 2015 and coordinates the various areas around the company. He is also the father of 3 small children who “help out” in the office from time to time.
Günther Braun’s wife supported her husband in a wide variety of tasks right from the start. Since the first baby was on it’s way, she stopped working as an educator and joined our team in 2017. Today she is responsible for the social media area. While the two boys only come to the office occasionally, the youngest child still keeps us company and variety in everyday work.
As the mother of the Günther Braun, she has enriched us with her knowledge and experience from day one. She has been fully employed with us since 2019. “Rosi” does the bookkeeping and coordinates the orders for “Abgefüllt in Bayern”.
In June 2018 the team expanded through Sofia Schilling. In addition to quality assurance, she takes care of sales and customer satisfaction. She cannot be easily disturbed, which not only pleases our customers. She is also very popular with the Braun children.

Our trainee as merchant in wholesale and export trade is in the 2nd year of apprenticeship. In addition to school and various insights into the company, she is the main person responsible for the online shop and its customers. From time to time she supports Stella in the social media area and lets her creativity run free.
Sylvana Rodrigues de Oliveira
In order to shape our appearance in the online area, we looked for an employee in e-commerce and found Sylvana. Before taking parental leave, she worked in this area for many years, which is why she is very familiar with most of the online platforms. Here she is a great support to us. As the wife of a Portuguese, she can also help us with language barriers here and there.

Heinz Braun also was a part from the company from the start. As a logistic manager, he always keeps an overview and is always at our side with his experience as a master baker. He always comes up with new things for the little ones so that a morning at the company doesn’t get boring.
The native Brazilian has been bringing a fresh breeze into our production since August 2020. As Heinz’s right-hand man, he gets to know the Franconian mentality and language and still manages to work quickly and conscientiously.
Stella Braun’s mother also helps in the family business. As busy as a bee, she buzzes around in production and, as a granny, is another point of contact for the children.
Sara and Lisa are students who support us in production during their semester break. Even when there is an emergency, they help out after university or school.
