let´s make the world a bite better

balance with taste

A matter of taste

hungry for a better world

When the world is out of balance, we can all do a little every day to restore it. That’s also why we – Friedrich Büse and Jens Wedel – founded endori. To bring the world back into balance, you’ve got to enjoy doing it. The way we eat is a significant factor for change. We give our customers the opportunity to find the balance between individual taste and social well-being. We do this by offering tasty food products that substitute animal proteins with plant proteins. Everyone can make the change and it can taste great doing it: balance with taste.

Our motivation

Our motivation

"The production of animal products such as meat, milk and eggs has a much bigger impact on the environment than the production of any other food product. Meat production is so inefficient and puts such a huge strain on resources that soon there will no longer be sufficient resources to provide well-balanced nutrition for the almost 9 billion people on this planet. Another critical aspect of previous manufacturing models in the food industry is the unbridled increase in monocultures and their related impacts. The crucial question is: how and on what do we want to live in the future? That is also the motivation behind endori."

Guido Klüh, Managing Director of Sales and Marketing

Collective attitude

from field to fork

Our guiding principle is: "from field to fork". This is the operational principle of a fully integrated value-added chain, beginning with the careful selection of seeds to cultivation, harvest, manufacture, logistics, packaging and sales. All links in this chain are committed to acting sustainably. We believe that the time is now. More and more people are deciding to go ‘flexitarian’ as they want to eat less meat. At endori, we are finding new ways to make sure people on a plant-based diet get everything they need without sacrificing anything in terms of health or enjoyment, all while helping to preserve the environment, nature and animals.

Our main ingredient

valuable plant proteins without soya and without chemicals

Our products are made primarily from peas: all of the energy they contain is developed from one summer’s worth of sun, rainwater and the nutrients from the topsoil. That is good for people and good for the planet. Animal production of meat, milk and eggs has a much bigger impact on the environment than the production of any other food product. Meat production is so inefficient and puts such a huge strain on resources that soon there will no longer be sufficient resources to provide well-balanced nutrition for the almost 9 billion people on this planet. The basis for our products is plants grown using a traditional multi-field crop rotation system instead of monocultures.

endori Erbsen in Hand

The extraction of protein is a physical process. The pea protein is found in the pea’s waters. This water is first pre-treated and heated. The moist protein flakes then emerge from the waters. These are then condensed using a centrifuge, dried and filled. The next stage is known as wet extrusion. This involves combining and mixing the raw materials and then moulding them with heat and pressure. The plant proteins are then cooked and pressed through a downstream chilled nozzle using two worm shafts. This creates the texture similar to meat.

Attitude and expertise

start-up with 150 years of experience

endori food GmbH & Co. KG was founded in April 2015 in Stegaurach, Bamberg. After years of preparation and an extensive search for suitable raw materials and technologies long before the company was founded, the first vegetarian high-protein products were manufactured in late 2016. In March 2019, Pfeifer & Langen Industrie- und Handels-KG invested in endori. Pfeifer & Langen IHKG is a proprietary company of leading enterprises within the food industry. The portfolio is characterised by well-known brands, trademarks and a strong position within industrial customer business. The origins of today’s group goes back to the year 1870.

Internationally positioned

strong partners, strong company

endori has strong partners throughout agriculture and science, and is itself a company within Pfeifer & Langen Industrie- und Handels-KG. Together with the Emsland Group, we produce our peas on fields belonging to farmers, almost all of whom we know. From a science standpoint, we work from the very start in coordination with the Fraunhofer Institute to meticulously select our seeds and strive for excellence in the manufacturing process. As a company of the international Pfeifer & Langen IHKG, we are able to benefit from 150 years of experience in the manufacturing of food products.
