Service to the market &
Cus­tomer-ori­en­ta­tion

Ser­vice to the mar­ket

We add value to agri­cul­tural com­modi­ties in order to pro­duce high qual­ity food­stuffs, an­i­mal feeds and or­ganic fer­tilis­ers as well as tech­ni­cal and in­ter­me­di­ary prod­ucts for in­dus­trial ap­pli­ca­tions. Im­por­tant cor­ner­stones here are long-term and part­ner­shipori­ented cus­tomer and sup­plier re­la­tion­ships.

Cus­tomer-ori­en­ta­tion

We offer prod­ucts and ser­vices that fully meet the needs and ex­pec­ta­tions of our cus­tomers. We aim to dif­fer­en­ti­ate our­selves from com­peti­tors by means of high prod­uct qual­ity, out­stand­ing ser­vice level, in­no­v­a­tive ideas as well as eco­log­i­cal and so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity which is re­flected in our ac­tions. We are cre­ative, flex­i­ble, ded­i­cated and al­ways look­ing for new mar­kets for our prod­ucts. Our in­no­v­a­tive power and re­search and de­vel­op­ment work, to­gether with our new prod­ucts launches tai­lored to cus­tomer re­quire­ments, drive our lead­er­ship in the mar­ket­place.

Optimising our value added is a cornerstone in our efforts to provide continual increases in the enterprise value of AGRANA.
