Sustainability is important to us - naturally.

Our sustainability strategy

"Doing business sustainably - shaping the future". This is the guiding principle behind our actions in the area of sustainability. Sustainable management is an essential part of our company policy.

  • We know that our long-term success can only be maintained if we combine adding value with acting responsibly. Through this link, we strive to make a contribution to good quality food while helping to protect the living conditions of future generations.
  • We are committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • Sustainability is therefore our key focus. We take an integrated approach based on economic, environmental and social goals. Our sustainable business practices are based on these three pillars. We have an international focus in our activities because we want to take advantage of and shape the opportunities offered by open markets. At the same time, this commitment forms the basis for our long-term independence and operational autonomy. 


Our core values

  • We produce high-quality food for the gastronomy sector, the food retail trade and for the food processing industry. We use various resources to manufacture these products.
  • People are at the heart of everything we do. Our employees are a guarantee for safe and high-quality foodstuffs.
  • High-quality raw materials, tailored to the product, are another important factor in the manufacturing of our products.
  • The production of our raw materials and packaging materials should be as sustainable as possible.
  • We can have a significant influence on the ecological impact of our production through effective, extensive utilisation (yield) and minimisation of waste.
  • Our use of water, electricity, gas, and fuel has an impact on the environment. Among other things, this affects the so-called CO2 footprint. Our responsibility is to keep our CO2 footprint as low as possible. This is how we do our part to limit global warming.
  • In January 2023, as a company, we joined the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) to combat climate change and committed to setting Net Zero targets.

Certified sustainable according to the ZNU standard

  • Since 2017, we have been certified according to the ZNU Standard - Driving Sustainable Change. This standard from the Center for Sustainable Corporate Management at Witten/Herdecke University helps us to structure, process and further develop our sustainability management programme.
  • As a member of the partner network of the Centre for Sustainable Business Management of the University of Witten/Herdecke, we try to work with other companies to build a better understanding of the importance of sustainable business management.

Climate protection strategy

We as a company began to implement climate protection measures as early as 2002. For example, the energy management system has been certified according to DIN EN ISO 50001:2018 since 2013. The procurement of efficient production equipment and the conservation of resources along the value chain have been part of the company's sustainable management for many years. We have also been a partner of the ZNU goes Zero project for quite some time - an initiative that has set itself the goal of working together to achieve net zero. It is a network for the exchange of ideas and strategies.

  • Since 2018, we have calculated our emissions annually in accordance with the GHG Protocol.
  • By calculating our corporate emissions, we were able to identify emissions drivers and implement targeted reduction measures such as the 100% use of green electricity, the installation of photovoltaic systems on almost all roof surfaces as well as CHP systems.
  • In January 2023, we joined the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) to combat climate change and committed to setting Net Zero targets. 

The certification of this approach by ClimatePartner provides us with transparency in the entire climate protection strategy of the company, including the carbon footprint, the targets for reduction, the successfully implemented reduction measures and the financial contribution to climate protection projects worldwide.

Our climate protection strategy consists of 5 steps.
