For good food

"Quality is the basis for our success": this is the heart of Wernsing's company philosophy. In producing good food, we are primarily concerned with quality, taste, safety and sustainable production. That is why we attach great importance to traceability, starting with the procurement of raw materials.

Regional suppliers (m/f/x) help us to increase the efficiency of our production processes, based on the principle of local supply chains.

Meeting quality requirements and ensuring a high degree of product safety are directly linked to sustainable operations. Qualified, usually long-term suppliers (m/f/x) with clear quality agreements for the delivery of raw materials and packaging play an important role.

 

Facts:

  • Sustainable production of food with excellent quality, taste, and safety:
  • Certified QA-System, IFS/BRC certification etc.
  • Production of clean label products (without added preservatives, flavour enhancers, antioxidants, colourings, emulsifiers, flavours, yeast extracts and chemically modified starches) , among others
  • We are working on reducing sugar and salt levels
  • Palm oil: If at all, then 100% RSPO certified (Segregation standard)
  • We work together with suppliers and partners on innovative projects and products
  • The use of regional raw materials for production: more than 50% of our raw materials and packaging materials come from within a radius of 100 kilometres (2019)
  • Efficiency along the value chain: we supply our customers (m/f/x) with a wide range of products and thus offer logistical added value
  • Continuous optimisation in the area of packaging:
    • Efficiency: square instead of round buckets, optimal pallet utilisation etc.
    • Improvement of recyclability
    • Reduction of plastic content in packaging (for example reduction of film thickness)
  • Digitalisation: Step-by-step conversion to paperless document management systems

 

Future goals:

  • Reduction of 10% in the proportion of plastics used for food retail packaging from 2015 to 2025.
  • By 2025, 95% of packaging by volume should be recyclable.
  • Reduction of 50% in total paper consumption for administrative processes between 2018 and 2025.
