Company

Bakery with family tradition

When a baker's family knows how to combine handicraft with the highest quality requirements, then only something special can result from it. The Haubis GmbH!

Take a traditionally minded bakery, supplement it by the fine pastry offer of a confectionery and add a good deal of farsightedness and creative enthusiasm. You will then have found the recipe for success which has been followed in Petzenkirchen, Austria since 1902.

Enjoyment over generations

At Haubis, each dough has time to rise well and develop its full taste potential. According to the same natural and healthy rhythm, our company was also allowed to grow. Today, we are proud to be a family business in a world of multinational groups.
