The management of the DE-VAU-GE Gesundkost Deutschland GmbH (f.b.l.t.f.r.):

Dr. Rüdiger Kühl (CSO), Jürgen Ridder (CSCO), Philip Sponagel (CFO), Harald Arndt (CFO), Michael Makowski (COB), Dr. Andreas Makowski (CEO).

Michael Makowski

Started as managing director at DE-VAU-GE in October 1970. The vision of turning the company into an efficient and customer-oriented producer of cereals, muesli and bars dates back to that time. In the early 1990s, the transformation to a private label manufacturer for food retail and discounters started.

Dr. Andreas Makowski

Committed to this philosophy since childhood, a health food store supplier has become one of Europe’s largest cereal manufacturers. This development, for example, made organic products affordable for everyone for the first time in food retail.

Harald Arndt, Dr. Rüdiger Kühl, Jürgen Ridder, Philip Sponagel

Following this development, a management team has been set up that supports and shares responsibility for these goals with great commitment.

Now you are probably surprised that we do not all make individual statements here, but that would not reflect the character of our cooperation, because we have set out together as a team to deliver the best products of the best quality for our satisfied customers.
