"I am proud that as a family business we can work sustainably on the big vision without outside investors (such as VCs, angels or private equity) and without short-term, monetary goals. This makes us strong, because digitizing our industry is not a sprint, but a marathon. It's exciting to see startups mimicking what we already developed 5 years ago and copying our strategy. What they don't know is what we are already working on for tomorrow and how high our technological lead is. I am proud that for more than 20 years we have been doing good with professional companies worldwide: we are making an industry more sustainable and helping it to keep out and manage pests worldwide much more effectively. With innovations from Germany, we are proud to be called a "non-champion". The truth is: we are just at the beginning of Futura's potential. I expect that by 2030 we will be turning over €100 million and employing well over 100 people."


Daniel Schröer on the future and present of our industry. Topics include legal changes, food standards, and how to build your business to be sustainable 10 and 20 years from now.

In an interview with PPC, Daniel is asked what he thinks digital pest control means for the sector. Will all pest controllers soon have to be IT engineers to catch a rat?

Daniel Schröer was interviewed in Hygiene-Report magazine about digitalization in food companies and what role “smart” concepts can already play in everyday operations.
