Competent partner of the food industry 

We have a long tradition of handling food responsibly. Founded as a family business in 1898, Johs. Stelten GmbH & Co. KG already engaged in storing, trading and handling sensitive products, mainly grain, flour and animal feed, more than 100 years ago.

Since these beginnings we have continuously expanded our know-how in food logistics and developed special competences in this field.
Reference customers for food logistics include Cargill Deutschland GmbH and Cargill Texturizing Solutions GmbH & Co. KG.

Our warehouse logistics specialised on food logistics is geared to the requirements of the food industry and related sectors. Our warehouses are partly temperature-controlled; a filling plant for liquid products is also available.
The venerable building of our silo facility does not only feature an impressive storage capacity of more than 15,000 tons but is an indispensable part of the Krefeld Rhine Port skyline due to its unique architecture.
In total, we have a storage capacity of more than 38,000 sqm at three different locations in Krefeld on an overall area of over 85,000 sqm.
