Recommended by our customers

Our testimonial bakeries give you a practical insight on successfully finished projects and satisfied customers. Become one yourself.



More than 5,000 bakers and pastry makers have opted for a product from WACHTEL - ranging from small, owner-managed artisan bakers through to medium-sized industrial companies.

Our customers are real bakers, who make their bread using natural ingredients. This bread is not produced on fully-automated baking lines, but actually in the bakery. We support this artisan trade and do not supply discounters or similar outlets. Our customers take it for granted that we bake our products in premium artisan quality, and use high-quality ingredients or materials in the process. Our customers include numerous innovative quality leaders in their sectors, who are also pioneers when it comes to sustainability. They all benefit from our unbiased consulting services, our innovative products and our professional service – whether they bake a few hundred loaves of bread or several thousand of them.
