BAADER has established a holding company, the BAADER Global SE, and thus created the basis for establishing BAADER as a European Group. With this new organizational structure, the company will take major steps to ensure its long-term future success while holding on to its deep family company roots. The legal entity of SE offers the company the ideal framework to further develop its corporate structure with various Business Units and subsidiaries in Germany and abroad for further future-driven growth.
Necessary legal requirements have been filed by the general meeting on Tuesday, 16 August 2022, and confirmed by the commercial register Luebeck on 18 August 2022. The ownership structure is remaining the same, BAADER will continue to be one hundred percent privately owned by the Baader Family.
The holding company maintains its proven management structure with two Managing Directors, Dr Norbert Engberg, Poultry Business Unit and Digitalization Business Unit, and Robert Focke, Fish Business Unit.
