Research & Development

Innovative process solutions for making high-grade foods.

Approximately half of Bühler's sales revenues are generated by products that are less than five years old. For this reason, the company invests an average of four to five percent of all profits annually in basic research and applied development. More than 7500 patents stand testament to Bühler's innovative power. Interdisciplinary research teams comprised of well over 200 employees are constantly on the search for new innovative solutions. While the majority of these are self-generated, many are also the result of close collaboration with our clients as well as in cooperation with numerous colleges and research institutes.
