A long story in brief

The success story of this family business started with the foundation of Fortin Mühlenwerke in 1932 in the port of Düsseldorf, which grew to become one of the leading suppliers of cereal products – primarily oats – with customers from trade and industry around the world.

The company remains a family-owned business to this day, and its headquarters are still in Düsseldorf, but the construction of the new state parliament in 1982 made it necessary to relocate to a new site on the Rhine, providing an opportunity to build a new mill. After a major fire in 2011, the mill was completely renovated and now boasts state-of-the-art technology, as well as the logistics and storage facilities in the port of Neuss that we have operated since 2004.

For almost 90 years, Fortin Mühlenwerke have been keeping what their name – derived from the Latin word for strong, “fortis” – promises: the company and its products stand for strength, sustainability and health – good ingredients for the recipe for dynamic development with excellent prospects.

Oats – the amazing grain

Fortin processes many types of cereal, but none plays such an important role for us as oats. We have specialised in oats from the very outset, and are now recognised as the leading experts in the field of oat products.

Paving the way around the world

As a company dedicated to sustainable food production, we are committed to ensuring that we minimise our impact on the environment and conserve resources as much as possible in everything we do.

Quality sealed and certified

The secret of our success story is the high quality of our products. The key to this is using top-quality raw materials and processing them skilfully.

Of course, we use state-of-the-art machinery and continuously adopt all the latest technical innovations available on the market.
