A History of great ideas
Bayer’s first priority has been improving our customers’ lives since the day our company began over 150 years ago. Our groundbreaking products and state-of-the-art facilities have their roots in the forward-thinking small business founded by Friedrich Bayer and Johann Friedrich Westkott in 1863.

Our Contribution to Society
Sustainability and social responsibility have always been key topics in our efforts to adapt to a changing world.

This commitment is an integral element of Bayer’s corporate policy. We support a number of patient's associations and we have collaborations with organisations such as United Fund for Belgium (UFB) in Belgium and Oranjefonds in the Netherlands.
