For an Inspiring Work Culture

We implement a culture, where people can flourish in a diverse, safe and inspiring workspace.


Dr. Oetker has long been one of the world's best employers. This was last confirmed in 2020 by the business magazine Forbes in its “World‘s Best Employer” Ranking. We want to maintain this high standard. That is why we promote diversity and equal opportunities, ensure the best possible occupational safety and give every single employee a sense of home.

Provide a safe working environment

  • We want to avoid occupational accidents completely.
  • By 2025 we will implement an occupational health and safety management system at all production sites that complies with the internationally recognized certification standard ISO 45001.

Ensure the right of freedom of association and collective bargaining

  • We work closely with employee representatives.
  • We ensure that employees can form and join organizations of their choice for this purpose.

Warrant equality and value diversity

  • We continuously strengthen our culture of diversity, inclusion, and equality.
  • We ensure equality for all people regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, culture and nationality, physical and mental ability, academic background or other characteristics and promote diversity in the recruitment and deveopent of staff.

Zero tolerance of any kind of discrimination or harassment

  • To guarantee this, we establish easily accessible and strictly monitored grievance mechanisms for all employees, or expand them where they already exist.

Pay every employee a living wage

  • We ensure living wages that enable all of our employees to meet the basic needs of their families.
  • Every two years, country-specific comparisons are made based on international organizations' guidelines at all Dr. Oetker locations. If necessary, we then adjust the wages accordingly.


Every day, we at Dr. Oetker work on getting a little closer to our sustainability goals. Soon you will learn more about the concrete measures we are implementing to achieve this and what progress we are making!
