  • Our history

    The world of lactose is the world of MEGGLE. What began in 1887 as a dairy operation in the town of Wasserburg, near Munich, is now one of the world’s leading manufacturers of pharmaceutical lactose. We have been providing the pharmaceutical market segment for more than 60 years with a broad-based lactose product portfolio found nowhere else in the industry. Over 30 years of experience in direct compaction tableting also speak for themselves – and for us.

    With committed, highly qualified employees in all diciplines, our clients can benefit from the experience and innovative drive of a pioneer in industrial milk and whey processing. We are constantly working to develop high-tech, functional products for implementation in customer applications, where they can deliver maximum performance. Even with our advances in innovation, we remain what we always have been: a family business with strict values and high standards. Performance and partnership with our customers are at the core of our success. You can count on that; we do, too.
  • Our vision

    Short-term goals are important. Everyone should have them. But long-term goals are what define a company’s vision and chart its overall course. We are guided by our vision each and every day.

    • Development and implementation of innovative, functional products for application in new dosage forms.
    • Pioneering in pharmaceutical excipient development.
    • Leading with our independent, global network in the fields of research, development, technical support, engineering, sales, and distribution.
    • Exceeding customer expectations in resolving challenges with new and existing formulations.
  • Sustainability and certification

    We are not only a successful business enterprise. It is in our tradition to take responsibility for the environment and society - also in terms of future generations. In every major decision we therefore consider not only their short-term effects but also the long-term effect on economic efficiency, resource use and the environment, employees and society. This gets clear our first Sustainability Report for the efficiency of our environmental management.
    Find out how we set the course for job security, environmentally friendly production or meaningful investment in a healthy economic future. You get to know our input-output balance and of course our certification standards. In addition, we present important environmental projects of recent years.
    That's all very interesting - I promise! And that this report as well as all of our brochures with mineral oil-free inks, printed on paper from sustainable forests and is climate neutral, goes without saying.
