Pesticides, chemical fertilizers, genetic engineering or land exploitation … not exactly our cup of tea!
…The first step towards creating high quality products is the use of high quality raw materials. From personal experience we’ve built our philosophy for all our products. We firmly believe in using organic ingredients.
Our raw material suppliers share the same passion for quality and we’ve been working with reliable partners for many years. Our cooperati0n is supported by comprehensive organic inspection and certification (DE-ÖKO-013) as well as product quality controls such as frequent monitoring of quality by international laboratories.
What does organic actually mean?
Organic foods are products originating from organic agriculture. In contrast to so-called ‘conventional’ agriculture the use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers and sewage sludge “fertilizers” are prohibited! Genetically modified organisms are also strictly prohibited. The BASIC principle of organic agriculture is to produce food in HARMONY with nature. The way in which we use our natural resouces – soil, water and air – should be sensibly and responsibly.
Organic is better for the environment!
Organic agriculture supports (as opposed to exploits) nature. By applying sensible and traditional organic agricultural principles we can increase the fertiliness of soil by working in agricultural cycles. Mono-culture empties the soil completely of the minerals which plants need to grow, and farmes end up in a vicious cycle of adding chemical concoctions to force any growth at all. Most important is the avoidance of pesticides. While pesticides might ‘save’ a crop under certain circumstances, the impact on the environment, specifically insects, birds and other animals, is devastating in the long run. Water p0lution through sewage sludges is particularly disastrous to the environment. Applying organic agricultural principles has a non-destructive impact on the surrounding non-agriucultural land areas, insects and other animals, biodiversity in general is maintained.
Organic is best for health!
Respiratory distress, headaches, nausea, rashes, all this and more can be the result of consumption of foods affected by sewage sludge fertilizer, pesticides and other abusive, but unfortunately fairly common, agricultaral practices. Organic food is more strictly controlled than non-organic food, and the food in itself has so many more good qualities including higher andioxidants, which helps to prevent cancer and heart disease. Several studies have proven the health benefits of organic produce. Even though all our products are vegan, we cannot stress enough how beneficial organic farming is to animal wellfare, a fact which should play a role in your everyday shopping choices.
Trust, but verify…
It is important that consumers can clearly and without a doubt recognize which foods are organic. The organic logo, such as the EU green leaf (or in combination with the soil association logo), may only be used if the actual food has been certified as organic. Organic certification is a strict and repeating process for any business directly involved in organic food production.
As a german-based company we use the EU green leaf logo on all our products which we sell throughout Europe. Our certifier is QC&I with the Id number DE-ÖKO-013. We have both announced and unannounced regular inspections where the detail of all our dealing in organic food is controlled and monitored on a very detailed lever. All our partners need to have an organic certification adn all new products have to go through a stricht procedure before the use of the organic logo is allowed
So why do we choose organic, without exception?
Because we feel strongly about its benefits for the environment, for your and our health and for the future of next generations in a sustainable
