In 1919, the brothers Josef and Carl Leimer took over the patisserie and confectionary Jäger at the town square in Traunstein (Germany). In parallel, they established a wholesale bakery and supplied the retail in the Chiemgau and Rupertigau with fine bakery products. The revolutionary idea to produce breadcrumbs no longer from old bread but from extra baked fresh white-bread was the beginning of an unparalleled success story.

With innovative product ideas and the highest quality awareness, LEIMER expanded its market position with breadcrumbs from Bavaria. Further convenience products followed, e.g. LEIMER Ready-to-Use-Breadcrumbs-Mixture with eggs and spices.

As an innovation for the German market, LEIMER developed croutons, roasted white-bread cubes in interesting flavours. 

Due to the development of the organic food market, we offer a number of selected products also in organic quality. For consumers sensitive to gluten, LEIMER launched gluten-free breadcrumbs.

On the fully automatic baking lines and around the clock, 300 tons of fresh white-bread are processed to LEIMER branded products. With its Bavarian delicacies, LEIMER is an important partner for retail and industry and internationally active today.

LEIMER – “Quality through freshness”!
