Additional Program

During the HRI 2014, we offer the following additional activities which will take place on Wednesday, March 5, 16:30-19:00.

  1. Dr. Oetker World
    For almost nine decades, Dr. Oetker pudding powders were manufactured here. Now the time-honoured building at the Bielefeld headquarters houses the modern Dr. Oetker Welt – for the food industry a new form of brand presentation which is informative and emotional at one and the same time. Visitors learn interesting facts about the family business, the brand, the products and the company’s fields of operation. At Dr. Oetker Welt, the fascination of the brand is tangible – and with it the certainty that brands as strong as Dr. Oetker will continue to exist in the future.
