We’re taking an active part in making great products that enrich our customers lives – and that become future business areas of the Melitta Group.
The Melitta Group traces its origins back to the invention of the filter bag in 1908 by Melitta Bentz, the company’s namesake. It is this innovation that has made the inventive spirit part of our company’s DNA. To keep this spirit alive more than 100 years later, the Melitta Group operates a Corporate Innovation department in Minden, Germany. It drives innovation across the Group's divisions and founded an innovation hub in Berlin in 2018. Our mission is to open up new markets with radically conceived innovations.
We actively screen new trends, technologies, and new approaches. We work in iterative steps using 'lean start-up' principles. And we never stop thinking outside the box. This gives us the freedom to think innovations ten times bigger than a conventional organization can.
That’s the guiding principle behind our name: 10X INNOVATION.
And that is who we are: IOX INNOVATION.
