Piedmont Hazelnuts «Tonda Gentile delle Langhe» (Origin: Italy)

The beautifully round hazelnut from the heart of Piedmont is the queen of hazelnuts. It has a balanced, soft hazelnut flavor, is easy to peel and has a long shelf life. Freshly roasted, it is pure pleasure. It grows in the special soil of the Langhe alongside the best wines such as Barbaresco, Nebbiolo, Barolo and Dolcetto. The famous white truffles also come from this soil.


This hazelnut variety comes from the region around Rome. It is particularly crunchy and an ideal snack between meals. Hazelnut kernels contain many unsaturated fatty acids and are a good source of vitamin E. Hazelnuts from the new harvest are usually available on the market from mid-September.


The extra green Sicilian pistachios thrive on the nutrient-rich volcanic soil on the slopes of Mount Etna between Brotne and Adrano in Sicily. Gourmets and gourmet chefs appreciate their distinctive aroma. In Sicily, unlike in other growing regions, the pistachios remain on the bush until they are fully ripe. The reward for patience is the perfect taste.

mediterranean pine nuts from vesuv (origin: italy)

Mediterranean pine nuts, which grow at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, are particularly aromatic thanks to the nutrients from the volcanic soil and are among the finest of their kind. Their taste is reminiscent of the smell of pine resin. Freshly roasted, pine nuts are a real treat to nibble on their own or in a salad.

Walnut “Extra Moitié Franquette” from the Périgord (origin: France)

The Périgord has ideal conditions for growing walnuts. Both the soil and the climate are conducive to the taste of walnuts from this region. In addition, walnuts in Périgord are still cracked open by hand to avoid damaging the tender kernel. The “Franquette” variety is the finest and is used to decorate pralines and cheese.

Almond (origin: spain)

The Spanish almond variety “Marcona” is relatively sweet and has a fine texture. The Valencia is also from Spain. Its flavor is also more intense than that of Californian almonds. The first Californian variety is the beautiful and easy to process Nonpareil almond. The best-known Italian almond variety is the Avola. In terms of taste, the Avola is comparable to the Spanish Marcona almond. A distinction is made between sweet and bitter almonds. Sweet almonds are suitable for eating raw and are used for desserts, for decorating, as a filling (e.g. for olives) or for making liqueurs and marzipan. Bitter almonds should not be eaten raw. They contain amygdalin, a glycoside that produces hydrocyanic acid. Nevertheless, bitter almonds are grown on special plantations. After the hydrocyanic acid compounds have been removed, bitter almond oil is extracted from them and used to flavor liqueurs and baked goods.

Roasted Antep pistachios from Gaziantep (origin: Turkey)

The original home of the pistachio is the steppes and mountain slopes of the Near and Central Asia. The best quality pistachios from this area grow in the Gaziantep region in south-eastern Turkey. These are the so-called Antep pistachios. The shell of the Antep pistachio is somewhat darker, the kernel rather small, but rich and unmistakable in taste. This sweet, almond-like and spicy stone fruit is a typical ingredient in Turkish pastries and is also being used more and more often in the kitchen in this country. On the one hand, because it tastes good in sweet and savory dishes, and on the other, because it is decorative as a green splash of color.

Macadamia nut kernels “Style I” (origin: South Africa)

With an average temperature of 25°C, the macadamias in South Africa grow under ideal conditions. The plantations have state-of-the-art irrigation systems and the trees are carefully tended. The fruits remain on the tree until they are fully ripe. Their cultivation and further processing are demanding, their taste is exquisite and the title of the macadamia is appropriate: the “Queen of Nuts”. The mild, sweet macadamia nut has become increasingly popular as an aperitif snack in Switzerland in recent years. In its home countries, it is mainly used to refine confectionery.


The pecan tree is a North American tree species from the walnut family. The pecan halves in MDM’s range come from South Africa. They grow on trees on the fertile banks of the Orange River, the border river between Namibia and South Africa. They are considered to be the best quality pecans in the world and are certified by MDM with the organic bud. The aromatic, slightly spicy nut kernels with a smooth, slightly darker surface are a very well-tolerated alternative to walnuts. Pecans have a delicate, sweet taste. Many people know them as an ingredient in brownies. Pecan nuts are also used to make pralines or processed into exclusive pecan nut oil.

Cashew nuts “Jumbo” (origin: Sri Lanka)

The cashew tree, also known as the kidney tree because of the shape of the kernels, belongs to the sumac family. It grows in tropical climates and bears cashew apples, which are processed into juice and jam, and cashew nuts. The Portuguese were the first Europeans to discover this tree in north-eastern Brazil. Today, the best quality cashews in the world come from Vietnam and the Indian subcontinent. The “white goods”, i.e. the light-colored, large and whole kernels, are most in demand on the market. Cashew nuts have a particularly high content of the essential amino acid tryptophan, which is essential for the production of serotonin. Their taste is sweet and nutty and less harsh than that of peanuts or walnuts. Cashew nuts are part of Asian cuisine and are well-known and popular here as a baking product, snack or in salads.


From apple rings and other cut shapes to apple powder, with and without skin and in different moisture levels. Dried apples are available in a wide range of varieties and qualities: There are conventional goods, organic products and apple products suitable for baby food. When producing baby food, it is crucial that the ingredients withstand rigorous quality controls and that the preparation is carried out gently at relatively low temperatures.


Fruit and vegetables in flake and powder form, which are used in many convenience products, can be stored in a cool, dry and dark place for a very long time without any loss of quality. For production, fruit or vegetable puree is applied in a thin film to a heated drum and immediately begins to dry. After the drying process, this layer is scraped off with a knife either as a very fine powder or in the form of flakes.

Montélimar Nougat (Origin: France)

Nougat consists of water, lavender honey, beaten egg white, roasted almonds, pistachios, sugar, glucose syrup and vanilla. Nougat, which may bear the “Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC)” seal of quality and the name “Nougat de Montélimar”, must contain at least 30% seed kernels, 28% of which are roasted almonds and 2% pistachios. There are different types of nougat: hard or soft, white or colored, with different flavors.


Waffles are part of the production of ice cream or other confectionery. From shaped waffles to flat waffles and designer waffles – MDM is adept at sourcing top products in this market segment.


Special ingredients such as brownies, meringues and amaretti are available in different variations. Special customer requests can also be catered for in the production of selected products. For example, organic butter or free-range eggs are used.


Dried fruits are healthy energy packs. For centuries, dried fruit was a staple food. Drying was the only way to preserve fruit for the long winter. Today, dried fruit is a delicious and healthy snack for in-between meals. Exotic dried fruits are something very special: melon-sweet papayas, intensely fruity mangoes, fully ripe pineapples or delicately aromatic coconut cubes. Classics such as peaches and strawberries are also part of MDM Dreyer’s range.


Agen is famous for the Pruneaux d’Agen. The area around Agen in the western south of France in the Aquitaine region is now the main growing area for plums.
