Tradition & INNOVATION 

About us

Our history

In 1966 – in the year of an economic recession – master butcher and expert consultant Ludwig Scheid, author of several reference books on topics of meat product production, founded his own company. Co-partners of the new company at that time were his two sons Uwe and Dieter Scheid.

The idea of offering a special additive combination for each production target proved to be viable. By initially concentrating on raw and cooked cured products, Ludwig Scheid KG achieved great success in a short time and was established in the market as the curing specialist. With the expansion of the successful strategy to other production areas of meat processing, the company quickly took an unprecedented upswing in this industry. The basis of the success was a high level of entrepreneurial commitment, initiative and, in particular, a strong link to practice.

The concept was as simple as it was coherent: Consulting was capitalized and took precedence over sales. The approval was great and created a broad basis of trust among the customers.
