Our History


The Tradition

Germany is a country known for fine food, but it is perhaps most renowned for the fine art of baking. German bakers and their creations are respected the world over. None deserve this reputation more than Alfons Dimpflmeier. Trained as a Master Baker then graduated at the famous Handelskammer in Munich, Mr. Dimpflmeier brought his rare skills to Canada in 1957. From the beginning Mr. Dimpflmeier has used century old recipes baked in authentic stone ovens to create rye breads of superb quality and flavor. Baking true rye bread is a delicate and lengthy process that demands the finest natural ingredients and painstaking preparation. Dimpflmeier Rye Breads are now available throughout North America but every loaf is still prepared with the same tradition of excellence that has always distinguished Dimpflmeier products.

Made with Natural Spring water.

The Quality

Mr. Dimpflmeier has used only the finest ingredients since starting his business in 1957. This commitment to quality lead Alfons Dimpflmeier to purchase his own soft-water spring in the unspoiled country side of Terra Cotta, Ontario. Natural spring water is rich in minerals but free of chlorine and other chemicals found in normal drinking water. Natural spring water enhances the flavor of all Dimpflmeier products. Having also created an ORGANIC line of rye bread (which is wheat free and yeast free with no sugars added) and baking an ORGANIC Salt Free Rye, our customers are thrilled and grateful with Dimpflmeier’s commitment to baking healthy bread.
