DESTILLA COMPANY CULTURE
Highest product quality, innovation, sustainability and a serious commitment to customer proximity – this is what Destilla’s lively company culture has consisted of all along. As an owner-managed family business, we bring together tradition and cutting edge technology.
We know who we are – and we know what matters to us: our location in the Nördlingen region. Our dedication. Our above-average training rate. Our clear identity.
We don’t just think of our employees as function holders, but first and foremost as human beings. Flat hierarchies offer a high degree of individual responsibility and creative leeway. Which is how we plan on remaining internationally successful for the long term.
OUR INGREDIENTS FOR SUCCESS? TRADITION, PROGRESS, RESPONSIBILITY AND A WHOLE LOT OF TOGETHERNESS.
The Thienel family
With delight into the future
For more and more consumers, it’s extremely important that their food be naturally produced. Which is why today, Destilla manufactures almost exclusively natural flavours. We stand for our products being natural – with over 50 years of expertise in flavours and extracts.
We currently deliver around 35 percent of our goods abroad. Our goal is to broaden our global network and continuously expand our global marketing and sales. So we can imbue products the world over with perfect flavour.
For all these ideas and visions, we never lose sight of our core values: our origins and our roots. Our employees who play a pivotal role in Destilla’s success. And our common future, which we’re protecting and shaping through responsible, sustainable action.
