Südtirol Berge

From South Tyrol to the world

Launched as a pioneer in a niche market for Gluten Free products, today Dr. Schär is an expert in special nutritional needs with a global reach.

18 sites in eleven countries now make up the Dr. Schär Group


South Tyrol is the home of Dr. Schär. The company headquarters has been in Burgstall near Merano since 1981.  The central functions for all four areas of competence are based at the headquarters offices, which opened in 2017. The factory next door produces well-known products such as Schär's master baker's bread, as well as other Gluten Free bread substitute products and low-protein foods from Mevalia. 
Another production site, whose employees specialize in the production and quality control of bread rolls, wraps, pizza dough and piadina has been located in nearby Laives since 2012. 
The Dr. Schär R&D Centre has found ideal conditions in Trieste, at the AREA Science Park.
Borgo Valsugana in Trentino is home to Gourmet Italia, the manufacturer of frozen foods and ready meals (such as tortellini and lasagna), acquired in 2013. In 2015, the location was expanded to include a pizza center for the manufacture of Gluten Free Schär brand pizza, and since 2018 another new building has been producing bread and bread rolls on the factory premises.

The German headquarters are located in the Hessian town of Dreihausen. In 2006, Schär took over the former production plant from 3 Pauly and converted to exclusively Gluten Free production. Biscuits from Dreihausen are sold worldwide today. 53 different types of biscuits are produced here (biscuits and crackers). Dreihausen is also the largest German branch and looks after the German-speaking as well as the Benelux markets.
In 2006, the plant in Thuringia was put into operation, in the bell foundry town of Apolda. The employees produce Gluten Free bread and bread rolls from Schär for the international market.
Since 2012, the German trio has been complemented by the Rosbach site, where employees produce amino acid mixtures and low-protein diets for the brands Mevalia and Comidamed.
