AHRENSBURG, GERMANY — Dr. Matthias Moser has taken over the management of SternEnzym GmbH & Co. as part of a personnel restructuring at the Stern-Wywiol Gruppe.

He already has managed the business of the sister companies Hydrosol, OlbrichtArom and HS Additive in the same position since 2015.

His predecessor at SternEnzym, Lennart Kutschinski, will concentrate on his activities as managing director of the rapidly expanding companies Mühlenchemie, DeutscheBack and SternVitamin.

Responsibility for the seven foreign affiliates in the Food Ingredients division will be shared by the two managers. All the firms are members of the independent, owner-managed Stern-Wywiol Gruppe based in Hamburg, Germany.

“This personnel restructuring will create resources for increasing the effectiveness of our companies even further,” said Torsten Wywiol, chief executive officer of the Stern-Wywiol Gruppe. “We are glad to be able to handle the growing responsibility for our expanding business fields with our own, in-house resources.”

In three-and-a-half years, Moser has built Hydrosol up into a leading international supplier of customized stabilizing systems for the food industry, and he intends to strengthen this position by making fuller use of the potential of its applications technology.

As an enzyme designer, SternEnzym specializes in developing and producing enzymes to meet the challenges of the food industry. The solutions are used in the manufacture of baked foods and sugar confectionery, alcoholic and soft drinks, in dairy products, and in the sugar, meat and fish industries.

 “SternEnzym supplies tailor-made solutions in response to the growing challenges of the food industry,” Moser said, in explaining his objectives. “The synergisms between the sister companies of the Stern-Wywiol Gruppe in respect of expertise and structure ensure that we will continue to meet the individual needs of our customers in the best possible way.”
