About HOJA

Quality and flavour since 1982.

Hoja Hauptsitz Schwarmstedt


Led by Heinz-Helmut and Erika Hoja, the family business comes to fruition on an area of 300 m² in Grindau. Together with two journeymen and two apprentices, HOJA develops and produces frying systems, machines and special developments – initially for the Schwarmstedt potato factory.

HOJA grows and expands its production area to meet the increasing demand. With the first orders in England, the international market is also opened up and, together with Jörg Hoja, 3D CAD technology also finds its way into the company.

In the specially designed test kitchen, the equipment demonstrates its capabilities and is further developed and reworked in the now 2000 m² production area: Innovative systems such as the double rotary fryer (DRL), the easy portioner and the HOJA post-cooking tunnel are created and redefine the world of industrial frying.

More production, storage and office space is built, new facilities are developed and old ones are overhauled.

By doubling the number of CAD design workstations, HOJA positions itself in line with the times and combines many years of experience with the latest technology.

    We have been working with the HOJA frying system and various other systems from the quality manufacturer for a long time.

    There are worlds of difference between the frying taste of the cast-iron pans and the “conventional” Teflon frying systems.

    • Our products get a “homemade” quality thanks to the HOJA frying system.
    • The system is very reliable and has low maintenance costs.
    • You can always rely on HOJA’s service.

    We would invest in a HOJA frying system again at any time and can really recommend it.

    We can highly recommend partnering up with HOJA.

    We installed a small HOJA double rotary fryer with post-cooking tunnel in November 2017 and couldn’t be happier with the results.

    The technology has worked so well and delivered such impressive results that we have already ordered a DRL3000 with a corresponding post-cooking tunnel.

    Putting the machines to one side, our experience with the HOJA team is exceptionally good.

    The customer service is fast, reliable and technically very experienced.

    We have been using a HOJA frying line since 2011.

    We are very satisfied with HOJA frying lines, they are very sturdy and reliable. We can produce products of particularly high quality on HOJA frying systems.

    Our homemade products are a particular success on HOJA frying lines. The costs for wear parts for HOJA contact frying lines amount to approx. 1-2% a year. HOJA service and spare parts deliveries are excellent and fast.
    Response times for technical questions or concerns are very short.

    We can fully recommend HOJA machines and service.
