Nungesser becomes Swiss
In 2014, KM Commodities AG, a successful, family-run Swiss procurement company for feed raw materials and food ingredients, acquired a stake in Nungesser. The Swiss company primarily promoted the purchase and sale of bakery seeds and completely stopped the previous brokerage business of Nungesser.
Under the leadership of CEO Marco Fischer, “Nungesser since 1775” was integrated as a trademark at KM Commodities AG and registered with the patent office throughout Europe. KMC Nungesser GmbH, based in Seeheim-Jugenheim, Germany, was founded for sales in Germany. In order to strengthen procurement from Eastern Europe, a subsidiary was founded in Poland under the name Nungesser Polska sp. z o.o., with headquarters in Grodzisk Mazowiecki, Poland. All previous activities were completely restructured and the KMC Group was established. The brand “Nungesser since 1775” was used for the food business. In the course of 2015 the development of the nut business began, which has been growing strongly ever since.
At the same time the business with feed raw materials and additives prospered. The company is one of the leading suppliers, particularly in Switzerland, where it is also one of the largest compulsory stockholders of feed for the Swiss national supply. Over the years, the feed business unit has focused increasingly on feed additives and has gradually established itself in this business outside Switzerland.
The social, economic and societal sustainability is further promoted by both food & feed business units and anchored by strategic partnerships. A dictinct Code of Conduct, based on global standards such as the BSCI or UN Universal Human Rights, ensures responsible production, responsible and social interaction with people and reduced environmental impact.
