About us


Deutsche Tiernahrung Cremer is the largest private animal feed manufacturer in Germany. Our core business is the production of compound, mineral and specialty feeds for cattle, pigs and poultry as well as pets and companion animals of all kinds. Over 800 employees from 20 nations work successfully at our 15 locations in Germany. Together, we produce around 2.3 million tons of feed (2023). Our plants are among the most modern and largest compound feed plants in Germany. Thanks to our broad sales network with close customer support and the use of predominantly regional raw materials, we are a strong partner for domestic agriculture.


The assortments of our brands deuka, Club and Nordkraft are well known and appreciated by domestic farmers. The traditional deuka brand in particular has been fed to animals throughout Germany and in many neighbouring European countries for more than 90 years. Club and Nordkraft are of great importance in southern and northern Germany respectively. The products of all our brands stand for the highest quality in all feeding areas.

deuka Feed Ingredients

deuka Feed Ingredients specialises in the development of innovative feed products. The main interest of this part of Deutsche Tiernahrung Cremer lies in the production and distribution of high-quality feed components, which we refine using our patented opticon® process . Pressure hydrothermal treatment improves the digestibility of wheat, barley and maize. Farmers in Germany and other European countries benefit from this by achieving better feed conversion for their animals.

In 2003, Peter Cremer Holding acquired the then still independent company deuka Deutsche Tiernahrung. Only four years later, by merging with Cremer Futtermühlen, Germany's largest private compound feed producer was finally created: the Deutsche Tiernahrung Cremer. The renowned compound feed producers Club Kraftfutterwerke and Nordkraft had already been part of Cremer Futtermühlen before and, with the merger, formed important feed brands in the new company alongside deuka.

In addition to the production of animal feed, Peter Cremer Holding specialises in the production and marketing of cereals for the food industry and oleochemical products for the branded goods industry. The origins of the Hamburg-based family business lie in the international trade of agricultural and industrial raw materials. Today, Cremer's trading business is complemented by an extensive portfolio of logistics services, which are becoming increasingly important. The companies of Cremer Holding thus play an important role in the global agricultural sector.
