Chairman and CEO statement

Bühler proved to be a reliable partner for our customers, partners, employees, and major stakeholders around the world in a business year that turned out to be very volatile and dynamic. Key to this reliability is our broad portfolio of processing solutions and services – the result of consistent innovation efforts in good times and bad – combined with our global network and presence. These established success factors proved yet again to be stabilizing forces in markets which were subject to major changes.

Value Creation Model

The Value Creation Model illustrates how Bühler creates value for customers, employees, bondholders, business partners, and owners by unlocking sustainable business opportunities in the global food, feed, and automotive industries. It shows how we seek to balance humanity, nature, and economy in every decision and how this translates into outcomes for wider society and the environment.

Our strategy

Our purpose: Innovations for a better world

As a Swiss family enterprise with a history of 163 years, we are driven by a strong sense of purpose, and our strategy is based on deeply held values. Our purpose is to create innovations for a better world. The charter of our owner family defines our long-term objectives and acts as our normative lighthouse. And our values of trust, ownership, and passion are the behavioral principles for all Bühler employees worldwide.

Based on this, we have set goals for the coming years to strengthen our positions in our markets globally as a technology leader, while balancing the needs of humanity, nature, and economy in all our decision-making processes. We see profitable growth as a prerequisite for creating positive impact for a better world. This conviction guides our investments in the future development of our company, into innovative products and services, as well as in the development, education, and training of our people. In this context, the safety of employees has ultimate priority.

Partnerships with purpose

Bühler has consciously driven an ecosystem-based approach to innovation for more than 15 years with the goal of forming businesses that contribute to solving some of the burning issues of our times. Through collaboration we can do this faster. Today, our growing global network of academic partners, start-ups, NGOs, customers, and suppliers contribute to delivering pioneering technology and business solutions that help to meet the needs of a growing global population sustainably. Here are some examples of our many partnerships.


Bühler follows international standards of corporate governance. Its corporate governance activities are based on the principles of the Swiss Code of Best Practice – an instrument for clearly defining internal powers and responsibilities and optimally designing the interaction between the Board of Directors, the Executive Board, and the Group Internal Audit.
