Our quality promise - right from the start

Raw materials incoming inspection

Trust is good - the control of all incoming raw materials nevertheless goes without saying. Random samples are automatically taken from each delivery for testing by our sample tester. Raw materials are stored and released for production only if they meet the criteria of being sensory and chemically flawless.

Production, packaging and release for sale

The products also pass through significant stages of quality control, during grinding and packaging. They are only released when the requirements regarding the set quality parameters, but also regarding legality and safety, are met. To confirm this, we also have our products regularly analyzed by independent laboratories for a wide range of parameters.

Labeling and traceability

The clear labeling of each product makes it possible to record exactly when it was produced and to which customer it was delivered. This ensures complete traceability from the raw material to the customer - another indispensable pillar for guaranteeing our quality.

About us

The Frießinger Mill was founded in 1859 by Johann Jakob Frießinger. After the death of our senior boss in December 2021, today Willi Frießinger leads the successful and tradition-conscious family business alone in the 5th generation. His children Willi Erich and Lisa Frießinger have already joined the company a few years ago and will continue the family history in the 6th generation.

Mill tradition for over 160 years

Frießinger Mühle in Kirchberg an der Murr
In earlier times, the grain was still ground with wind and water power. The Frießinger mill also began in 1859 with a water mill in Kirchberg an der Murr. Since its foundation by Johann Jakob Frießinger more than 150 years ago, the mill has been family-owned.
In 1950, the mill is operated by Karl and his son Wilhelm Frießinger already in the 3rd and 4th generation. After a major fire, the first fully automatic mill is put into operation after only 6 months of construction.

Wilhelm Frießinger takes over the business of his father Karl. In the following decades, the mill in Kirchberg grows steadily up to a daily grinding of 75 tons.

In 1987, another fire forces the mill to make a radical new start: the relocation of the mill to Bad Wimpfen, its current location. There, Wilhelm's son Willi joins the company as the second managing director. Already 1 year after the fire, the mill grinds 150 tons per day.

We continue to grow! On September 14, 2002, we celebrate the inauguration of our first mill expansion. Our new building accommodates a 300-ton mill and 24 flour and grain cells.

The expansion possibilities available in Bad Wimpfen allow the mill to grow continuously. In 2005, a tower with 10 cells and a storage capacity of more than 14,000 tons of grain is built.

Another mill tower with a height of 63 meters will be completed in July 2018. A total of 1,200 tons of grain per day will now be milled on one of the most modern milling facilities in Europe. Likewise, the construction of another grain pellet silo will allow the storage capacity for milling by-products to be increased.

From field to bread

Mills are the place where grain is turned into foodstuffs such as flour, bran, meal and other mill products. Every employee bears a great deal of responsibility in this process: starting with grain acceptance at our laboratory, through the complex milling process, to final product inspection and delivery.

Below you can find out which stations the grain has to pass through in compliance with the strictest quality criteria before it reaches our customers' hands as a high-quality product.

Grain cultivation and harvest

From the field to the mill - Our wheat, spelt and rye are carefully grown in the fields and harvested at perfect maturity to ensure the best quality.

Raw material incoming inspection

Focus on quality - During incoming inspection, the grain varieties are rigorously tested to select only the best raw materials for milling.

Grinding process

Traditional milling - With great care, the grain goes through a gentle and precise milling process in our modern milling plant to produce high-quality flours with the best baking properties.


Finest selection - Through gentle sifting, we separate the flour from coarse components to guarantee uniform particle size and purity.


Ready for packaging - Our flour is precisely filled and prepared for shipping to maintain its freshness and quality until it reaches the end customer.

Final inspection

Quality Promise - Before shipment, our flour undergoes a thorough final inspection to ensure the highest standards.


Off to the customer - With our reliable delivery network, our various flours are delivered on time to bakeries, supermarkets and wholesalers.

Pizza School

In addition to the classic grinding, mixing and convenience products, we also offer a wide range of special products in the field of pizza production. Here we have been working together with Umberto Napolitano's Pizza School for many years. He is well known from radio and television as well as the founder of the national pizza team and former pizza acrobatics world champion.


Special products for the production of extraordinary, fluffy-light, crispy-crunchy or rustic-tasty pizza doughs according to the traditional Italian model are not only produced by us, they can also be learned directly on site in pizza seminars. The courses are suitable for professional pizza makers as well as for those who want to become one! Immerse yourself in our world of pizza baking!

Sustainable towards the future

We want to offer our customers consistently high quality, which includes not only product safety but also a responsible approach to the environment. The focus here is on sustainable action towards people and nature. Thus, a careful handling of resources takes place, which is oriented towards future developments and generations.

One of the most energy efficient operations in the industry

Large amounts of energy are required for grinding grain, which is why we have been working with 100% certified green electricity since 2017. Modern energy concepts and our certified energy management system (DIN ISO 50001) ensure energy-efficient use of resources in many areas. Among other things, we use waste heat from production to heat our offices and social rooms as well as to generate hot water.

Processing of the whole grain with all its by-products

All components of the grain are utilized in the milling process. The milling process utilizes all the healthy components of the grain in a sensible and sustainable manner, without producing any disturbing substances such as chemical residues, odors, or industrial wastewater.

Own port with connection to international waterways

A by-product that is produced during grinding is bran. This is pressed into bran pellets on our own bran pelleting line and transported by ship as straight feed. The ideal location on the Neckar river makes this possible for us. This relieves the roads and saves a lot of CO2: on average, one shipload is equivalent to 80 trucks!

Regional producers - maximum transparency and short transport routes

We source nearly all of our top-quality wheat regionally. The spelt also originates from the surrounding agricultural areas, allowing us to receive our grain via short transport routes. We have maintained long-term cultivation contracts with our farmers since the beginning, emphasizing a transparent value chain with the sustainable goal of preserving regional bread grain cultivation in the future.


The topic of compliance is also anchored in the corporate policy of Frießinger Mühle. Because legally compliant and fair conduct is a matter of course for us. We also demand this from our suppliers and business partners in order to ensure that human rights and environmental standards are observed along the value chain and that child labor, corruption and discrimination are prevented.

Whistleblower Protection Act

The primary purpose of the so-called whistleblower law is to ensure better protection for whistleblowers. The employee is usually the first to notice errors or grievances and can ensure that violations of applicable law are reported, uncovered, investigated and stopped. Employees, but also our customers or partners, have the opportunity to provide information in various ways (by name or anonymously). By telephone, by mail or by e-mail, both to external parties (e.g., the Federal Office of Justice) and to our internal reporting office (compliance@friessinger-muehle.de).
