Ever since the company's founding, sustainability has remained a key corporate value.
Direct purchase of raw materials
Wherever possible, we purchase our raw materials directly in the countries of origin, from farmers and cooperatives with which we have had long-standing partnerships. The majority of our ingredients are organic and sourced with fair trade agreements in place.
We continually strive to improve our environmental performance and reduce our consumption of resources such as energy and water.
Solar energy generation
In the spring of 2013, a photovoltaic system situated on the roof of the warehouse building in Kreuzlingen was able to be commissioned. It generates around 30,000 kWh of electricity annually and serves to reduce existing CO2 emissions by 18 tonnes per year. An additional 20,000 kWh of solar energy is purchased annually.
