In 1891 Dr. August Oetker developed the baking powder Backin at his pharmacy in Bielefeld, Germany. Thanks to the quality of the raw materials and the stable ratio of active ingredients, he was able to guarantee housewives perfect baking results every time. With this outstanding innovation Dr. August Oetker laid the foundation for a major business enterprise and for the brand Dr. Oetker. Due to the success and continuous expansion of the product range, Dr. Oetker rapidly acquired manufacturing facilities. Shortly after the turn of the century the company opened its first food factory, which was then expanded several times in the following years. Production facilities were also established in other European countries. The sustained growth of Dr. Oetker was rooted in the companys ability to innovate and introduce new products in line with changing consumer requirements. This manifested itself in the decision to enter the frozen food and chilled food segments in Europe.
