Expert in providing tasty pretzels and other snacks at highly frequented locations in Germany.


«Pretzels since 1919»

Ditsch can look back on a long tradition in the baking business: Ditsch has been providing pretzel-induced enjoyment to customers since it was founded in 1919. The aroma of warm Ditsch pretzels is a staple feature of stations and other highly-frequented locations in Germany.

In addition to classic pretzels, the shops offer other lye bread specialties, pizza snacks and croissants both as a snack or in more substantial form as well as hot and cold drinks.

Moreover, Ditsch is always on the lookout for new varieties and seasonal products. The lye bread products are produced in Germany in the company’s own facilities and are freshly warmed up on location. Ditsch has been part of Valora Group since 2012.
