Roland Mills United GmbH & Co. KG is a traditional milling company in Northern Germany with many years of experience in the production of safe and customer-specific grain milling products. Its expertise in various food processing applications is highly appreciated by its customers.
Early on, the company opened up new usabilities for its milling products with innovative processing methods such as hydrothermal treatment. Being its latest innovation, the company has invested in a plant for grinding and protein enrichment of fava beans and other legumes. This is a response to the changing needs of consumers, living in a world where the importance of a sustainable diet that protects resources is growing. A strict separation between production and conveying lines ensures allergen-free products.

Fava Trading GmbH & Co. KG, founded in 2016 by innovative farmers from the Weser-Elbe region, is a modern start-up taking advantage of the new opportunities offered by the field bean in this traditional cultivation area. Their aim on the one hand is to improve the biodiversity of the soil and preserve it for the next generation, on the other hand to exploit the untapped market potential of the field bean.
With their own cultivation and cultivation contracts, they have created a solid raw material basis and have already successfully established a regional value chain with international marketing of their products including a facility for cleaning and peeling field beans. Today, the company owes its outstanding market position in the marketing of fava beans to its pioneering spirit.
