Döhler GmbH / MOLDA AG

Globally-active Döhler Group acquires majority share in dry ingredients specialist MOLDA AG

  • Addition of natural dry ingredients for food to the product portfolio
  • Expansion of the technology portfolio to include all market-relevant drying technologies at one site
  • Stage is set for further expansion in the food segment

Döhler is acquiring the MOLDA company shares held by Capital Management Partners (CMP), thereby becoming the majority shareholder with 90 per cent of the shares in MOLDA AG. Based in Dahlenburg/Germany, MOLDA AG is a specialist in producing and marketing dry ingredients and today supplies almost all leading food corporations. MOLDA’s product portfolio ranges from freeze-dried fruits, fruit granulates, fruit pieces and fruit powders, premium freeze-dried coffee and tea specialities to individual bakery and pastry mixes, a wide variety of milk and fat-based ingredients, as well as emulsifiers and high-quality speciality products such as red wine and honey powder. All products are produced from selected natural raw materials and stand out through their excellent sensory quality, a high degree of convenience and maximum naturalness. MOLDA aims to develop customised ingredient solutions for its customers in the food and beverage industry, using only the best ingredients that nature has to offer. Döhler is a global producer, marketer and provider of technology-based natural ingredients, ingredient systems and integrated solutions for the food and beverage industry. In addition to using all market-relevant technologies, such as freeze drying, spray drying, roller drying, vacuum belt drying and coating, Döhler’s aim is to tap the experience of more than 400 employees of MOLDA. The first steps in the expansion of the site are already in the pipeline; previously planned investments are to be consistently driven forward and expanded. By doing so, Döhler is reinforcing its position as a competent partner for integrated solutions in the food and beverage industry.

The companies are now taking all the steps necessary to ensure successful cooperation in the future. The current management of MOLDA AG will play an important part in this integration process. MOLDA’s executive board, consisting of Michael Ulrich and Michael Müller, will continue to manage the company after its integration into the Döhler Group.
