Our Story

Melvia came into existence during my university studies. I was working as a hostess at baker’s fairs with a company J4, where my father used to work. Thanks to this experience I became knowledgeable in bakery engineering and gained my first contacts in the field. Regarding the subject of my study, which was international trade, it seemed to be a good idea to test the newly gained experience in practice so I started exporting bakery machines to Russian-speaking countries. They were mostly complex projects of automated bakery lines, in which customers needed help with communication with suppliers, coordination of a project, arranging a transport or installation. All of that was my domain. One day I went to see a sourdough fermentation system in a reference bakery. It was my first encounter with Isern Hager and their method of sourdough preparation. We immediately started our partnership. This technology amazed me because it joins together traditional bakery production and modern machinery. When it came to fusion of this brand with Diosna, the offer for representing Diosna in Czech Republic was one of the offers that you can not say no. Diosna has always been close to my heart. Their kneading machines are the top available quality and their varnished kneaders with fixed bowl are simply beautiful – they come from the times when constructers paid attention to design. It is precious to see these days.  

Up to this day, Melvia represents several reputable and perspective brands. I intentionally used a word several instead of many. Our goal is not to represent just anyone. We want to offer machines, that are unique, innovative and high quality to bakers. We want to make sure that our suppliers share our passion for bakery, and so do our customers. Our work doesn’t end with a delivery. We love to see our customers being successful and it is our pleasure to be helpful to them.

Our Vision

We supply our bakers with modern machines which work in harmony with traditional craft. We are here to preserve a traditional bakery in the modern world. Because we love good bread.
