More than 250 years of know how
The roots of the enterprise date back to the yeast production in Werne, Hameln and Monheim, already more than 250 years ago.

With the merger of the separate companions to create UNIFERM in 1975, the enterprise developed more and more from its origin in yeast production into a manufacturer of bakery-ingredients. Since that time UNIFERM also produces and distributes improvers and release agents.
