Ingredients and quality
We only use organic ingredients, wherever possible from the region. We are also growers of Alb lentils ourselves. We get first-class cleaned lentils from the house next door as an ingredient for our lentil spreads. We purchase rapeseed oil from Biohof Bauschatz nearby. Most of our products bear the Bioland logo and are strictly inspected annually by ABCert. Hygiene and quality assurance is carried out by the BAV INSTITUT. We are also a member of Slow Food Germany.
packaging and shipping
We work with an environmental printing company. The labels and leaflets are printed in an environmentally friendly way. The use of organic printing inks and organic varnishes based on renewable raw materials as well as suitable adhesives and additives also contribute to the conservation of resources. When shipping, we take great care to ensure that there is no waste, everything is made of paper.
