Sternchemie was established in 1980 by Volkmar Wywiol, one of the pioneers of the development and marketing
of lecithins, and has since grown into a dynamic, customer-oriented ingredients specialist.
Besides lecithin, our product range now includes quality MCT oils, vitamin-rich red palm oil and spray-dried coconut milk.
Sternchemie served as the nucleus of the Stern-Wywiol Gruppe – an owner-managed group of eleven
specialist companies, independent of the big organizations, operating internationally in the
field of Food and Feed Ingredients. The resulting synergisms are obvious: from interdisciplinary
applications research at the Technology Centre in Ahrensburg near Hamburg, through the joint
use of production plant to the group’s own logistics system we offer our customers a high
level of innovation and flexibility.
