Agriculture & nutrition

Nourishing people and animals

We all do it several times a day: eat. Right in the middle of it: BayWa, the link between farmers and food producers. Since 1923, we have been providing farmers with everything they need to set the table for us: seeds and fertiliser, combine harvesters and milking carousels, chopping robots and drone flights. 

We market the harvest on all continents. Our customers turn wheat into bread, soya into vegan sausage, maize into animal feed and hops into beer. We transport nuts, fruit and vegetables across the oceans directly to consumers' shopping baskets. Together, we do what really matters. We feed the world.

Beer is tapped

Will the beer of the future be alcohol-free and taste of vanilla?

Germans are drinking less and less beer or prefer non-alcoholic beers. But even without the flavour carrier alcohol, there are many ways to brew a good beer today. And there are new hop varieties that are better able to withstand climate change. So what will the beer of tomorrow taste like?

Grandma is not a vegan: How a cheesecake recipe unites worlds

Isabella Cordesmeyer loves cheesecake. It reminds her of her beloved grandma, her family and her home country of Brazil. However, when friends or family come to visit, the BayWa food expert sometimes changes the recipe. Because unlike Grandma, some of her guests are vegan, cannot tolerate lactose or are allergic to gluten. She recommends two cheesecake recipes so that everyone gets a slice of the cake.
