VEB Kraftfuttermischwerk Frohse

THE ABANDONED FACTORY IN GERMANY

‘Kraftfuttermischwerk Frohse’ was built as ‘Heeresverpflegungsamt Schönebeck’. It was built in the 1940s by the ‘Reichsnährstand’, a government body set up in Nazi Germany to regulate food production. The site was used to process and store food for the army.

This location is a big site with silos, offices and a huge heating station along the river Elbe. The first seven storage and production buildings were built during the Second World War. They were built with reinforced concrete with double-secured roofs to make the site bomb-proof.

1956 was the official start of the ‘VEB Kraftfuttermischwerk Frohse’, a company owned by the DDR government. This factory in Schönebeck was part of the ‘Getreidekombinat Magdeburg’. Major parts of the transport and drying technology were modernized in the 1960s.

The Kraftfuttermischwerk produced cattlefood in the early 1970s. The factory closed in 1992 and is for sale. I visited the site in 2012.
