A place where history and future converge with great success
The headquarter of SAVANNA Ingredients are located in Elsdorf in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, which is a hotbed and hotspot of innovation and technology. It is truly inspiring to work in a place with a history of sugar production since more than 150 years. This is where our parent company Pfeifer & Langen built its first sugar factory to process the beet that is a native crop of the Rhineland. Back then as well, producing sugar is an ultra-modern and innovative process.
In a place that is already steeped in tradition we are now taking the next step forward towards future. SAVANNA Ingredients processes the sugar extracted from beet to obtain new natural sugars for foodstuffs. Our products gain valuable properties for humans.
Within our development department, the labs and a new pilot production plant in the biotechnology centre in Elsdorf, which opened in 2016, we manufacture innovative types of sugar – from raw materials that grow on our doorstep.
