Petra Baader, Executive Chairperson
BAADER is a name that is synonymous with food processing for the past 100 years. Founded in 1919, the company first came into prominence in 1921 with the advent of the heading and deboning machine for herring. BAADER has never looked back ever since, claiming its name as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of fish and poultry processing machinery and solutions today. Over the course of this journey, leading innovations developed by BAADER have become the industry standards in the fish industry, including the first herring, salmon, and cod processing lines introduced by the company.
Today, BAADER provides the most innovative, reliable, and cost-effective processing equipment and solutions for the fish and poultry industries worldwide. They design and engineer innovative and holistic solutions that ensure intelligent, safe, efficient, and sustainable food processing in all stages, from the handling of live and raw protein materials to the finished food products. To facilitate this, BAADER has a worldwide network of service centers and subsidiaries in more than 70 countries. “Our overall mission is to be the one go-to partner for customers within the fish industry, as we have done for over 100 years.
We aim to provide and service innovative stand-alone equipment and system solutions within all major segments of fish that are best in class, based on strong engineering and deep-rooted knowledge of the industry,” says Petra Baader, executive chairperson of BAADER.
Notably, BAADER is playing a phenomenal role in leveraging data to optimize and enhance all phases of the food processing, and all stages of the food value chain, by bringing in greater efficiency, traceability, transparency, profitability, and sustainability. BAADER’s approach is in stark contrast to the cookie-cutter approach that is usually seen in the industry, which merely installs a machine in isolation and wraps up the process. BAADER, on the other hand, works with its clients and thoroughly evaluates their processing needs to provide the most efficient and financially viable solution that caters to the client’s requirements. Meanwhile, BAADER also ensures that all the environmental issues are addressed during the process.
To aid their clients in optimizing their production capabilities, BAADER has also introduced a production management software. The software is fully integrated with their hardware solutions and offers customers a powerful tool for enhancing decision-making and overall performance. The software provides the clients with real-time information for each stage of the processing and enables them to make necessary adjustments to improve the yield, quality, and throughput.
BAADER’s pioneering instinct in developing inventive solutions is further demonstrated by their unique and worldwide proven separator technology that has made a mark in food processing. The technology can be used in a wide range of applications to separate soft and solid components from a variety of raw materials. The technology guarantees the highest product yield with superior quality. Five models of BAADER Soft Separators, which leverage this technology, are available for different applications and capacities.
Basking in the glory of such competencies, BAADER has made a name for itself as one of the most inventive business partners in the global food processing market. Their expertise in developing state-of-the-art equipment for more efficient, safer, and cost-effective food processing has made them an ideal solution provider for the fish and poultry industries.
