Innovation team

With attention
to detail

What happens “behind the scenes”? At our very own Freshness Factory, we have a large variety of more than 2,500 high-quality products. Products that suit all occasions and a broad spectrum of gastronomic needs – ranging from appetizers to main courses and desserts.

The dishes we create are exclusively produced in our 15 in-house manufacturing locations in Germany. And they all have three things in common: exceptional quality, cost transparency and value for money. To stay innovative and on top of culinary trends, our master chefs craft over 800 new products in their development kitchen every year.

This constant renewal and creativity allow us to offer our customers diverse and high-quality culinary experiences while maintaining competitiveness in a rapidly changing market.

Excellent value for money, high customer satisfaction, outstanding quality and great service – consistently meeting these important standards has led the “F.A.Z.-Institut”, a renowned German research institute, to recognize Sander for the third time in a row. This continuous recognition reflects Sander’s commitment to excellence in several key areas – the same areas that were emphasized in the study by the “SZ Institut” to be critical when it comes to customer satisfaction in the catering and food supply sector. Our success shows that a family business can not only meet but exceed customer expectations by maintaining high standards of quality, service and pricing.

Managing Partners of the Sander Group

The Sander Group:

from Dream to Reality

Where it all started? Hans Peter and Ursula Sander founded the Sander Group as a small remote kitchen in Ney, Hunsrück in 1974. Since then, over the course of five decades, Sander has evolved into a leading food production and catering company in Germany, headquartered in Wiebelsheim near Koblenz. And thanks to our current leadership – second-generation trained chefs Jens Sander and Peter Sander – the organization has expanded beyond the German-speaking region into numerous countries of the European market.

Combining Tradition and Innovation: To meet the demands of an ever-evolving European market, Sander combines traditional German culinary art with innovative and fresh ideas. At the same time, sustainability and social responsibility build the core of our business philosophy – they are the basis of our leadership in the food industry.

Expansion in Europe: Outstanding quality and customer satisfaction: our ability to consistently fulfill these two very important aspects has helped us establish ourselves in various European countries. Furthermore, our adaptability to different regional needs and customer preferences has been essential in managing successful partnerships and projects across the continent. Great value for money, high customer satisfaction, exceptional quality and excellent service – based on these accomplishments, Sander was recognized by the F.A.Z.-Institut and the SZ Institut.

Recognized Quality and Service: We hold ourselves to the highest quality and service standards. Consequently, we have been recognized for excellent value for money and high customer satisfaction multiple times, including acknowledgements by the F.A.Z.-Institut.

Outlook on the Future: We are experts when it comes to German culinary traditions. At the same time, we are open-minded towards the diverse and exciting opportunities in the European market – Sander is well-positioned to continue its success story in additional European countries.

To the Point -
Sous-Vide Cooking

We want our dishes to look good – and to taste even better! That is why sous-vide cooking is one of our core competences that we have perfected over decades. This technique is an integral part of our culinary philosophy: slowly cooking meat, fish, and vegetables in their own juices at low temperatures. It allows us to consistently achieve high quality results:

  • Preservation of Nutrients: Essential vitamins and nutrients are better preserved using this gentle cooking method.

  • Authentic Flavor: Each dish retains its natural taste.

  • Ideal Texture: All dish components are cooked until they have reached their ideal texture, resulting in an extraordinary taste experience.

The sous-vide cooking method helps us in meeting and exceeding the highest culinary standards and customer expectations – whether it’s in terms of taste, quality, or health consciousness.

Both quality and origin play an incredibly important role when it comes to the raw materials we use: We do not mix antibiotics into animal feed – they are only permitted under the supervision of a veterinarian for the treatment of specific diseases. Preventative medications in any other form are …
