History of Nutriswiss AG

2020

We are upgrading our refining machine and setting new standards. We offer even greater food safety with the unique short path distillation system, which preserves valuable nutrients, prevents process contaminants and removes harmful substances when refining edible oils. .  

2018

The acquisition of the new automated emulsifier plant guarantees the delivery of additives to the finished product after refining.

Our refinery is going entirely kosher. Following the tankers and bulk containers, part of our packing process is now also kosher.  

2017

The old packaging facility is replaced with a new, state-of-the-art cardboard packaging facility including packing robots for fat. 

2013

The BELFINA brand is completely redesigned for the food service industry and is offered for sale with new products in cash-and-carry (C&C) outlets, wholesale food suppliers and regional wholesalers.

2012

Nutriswiss enters the food service market as a brand for frying oils and edible oils by launching 10 products.

2011

The brand BELFINA is born for the retail trade. Our own range of retail trade products, consisting of plant-oil creams and fats, is listed at Coop, Spar, Manor and Aligro.

2010

Nutriswiss enters the food service market with its own range of edible fat products. As a first step, it supplies C&C markets and wholesale food suppliers.

1997

In 1997, successful export activities led to Morgia SA being renamed NUTRISWISS AG.

1987

In 1987, Morgia SA moved to larger premises in Lyss which offered more room for further expansion than was available in Morges. Following the move, business rapidly took off. The company immediately started producing three times as much as was originally planned and the business results improved accordingly, enabling the company to install its own fat melter in 1988.

1967

In 1967, further restructuring left the ownership of Produits Morgia SA in the hands of the Cooperative of Central Swiss Master Butchers in Liebefeld in Bern and the Melters of Geneva. The original purpose of the company was to manufacture and distribute food under the Morgia brand name and trade in products for chemists' and grocers' shops. Despite this intention, Morgia SA began trading in fats and oils very early on.

1959

In 1959, Friederich Steinfels AG in Zurich, Usego in Olten, Chirat SA in Carouge, Coop Lausanne, a Dutch oil refinery, two producers' cooperatives from the butchery industry and others acquired a financial interest in the company.

1951

In 1951, Morgia became a limited company.

1914

Morgia SA began manufacturing edible fats back in 1914. Rapidly growing expertise resulted in the company producing an increasing number of edible fats. In particular, olive oil, pork and beef fat were in great demand and sold extremely well. There were no refining systems yet available at the end of the First World War, so Morgia SA was not yet able to refine its products. In those days, all the fats and oils were sold with their original flavour.

From the 1950s to the 1970s Morgia SA extended its production field to include bakery fats and margarine. The company also experienced a few setbacks. Shortly after the Second World War, business decreased. At the time, Morgia SA focused its investment too heavily in oils. One of the company's largest retail customers saw the high returns to be had with the product and started producing himself. Morgia SA was saved thanks to investment from GZM, who had faith that the company would succeed, trusting in particular in the skills of the Morgia employees.

1879

The company was founded as a sole trader in the Swiss town of Auw in Morges in 1879. Nutriswiss AG started off as part of Produits Morgias SA in Morges, in the canton of Vaud.
