Our Company

Service

Customer-orientated processing and friendly employees are just as much part of the quality characteristics of DIF as the demand for high quality standards of our production. With clear structures, we help our customers and suppliers saving time and optimising costs. The quality of our products and the friendliness of our team naturally remain unaffected.

Being one of the global market leaders for natural casings, a market-orientated and global way of thinking comes naturally. Language barriers are overcome by our multilingual team. This allows our customers and suppliers a problem-free handling of orders, as well as space for humanity.

Production

Modern technology and qualified employees allow products with excellent quality characteristics. As specialists in this branch, we can already process the fresh products in the slaughterhouses and transport them by means of a cleverly devised system, using special refrigerated vehicles, to the central plant in Wietmarschen-Füchtenfeld. On arrival, the products will go for further processing. All processes are subject to constant monitoring.

In accordance with the highest hygiene standards and the fulfilment of the most stringent international certification requirements, all products are handled in detailed optimised work processes to manufacture the natural casings and by-products which our customers value.

As a quality supplier for the meat and sausage industry, specialist for the extraction of pharmaceutical raw materials and partner for the by-products industry, DIF (Darmindustrie Füchtenfeld) has always placed great emphasis on good relationships with customers and suppliers.

By focussing on our core competencies and the proximity to the market, DIF has consistently established new products and optimised existing ones. Precise quality standards at the highest level have made DIF one of the global market leaders in this branch.
