A fair deal for everyone

Social and environmental standards are increasingly becoming the focus of consumers who are increasingly concerned about sustainability.

We are pleased about this because, as an amfori and Sedex member, we disclose the sustainability of our products along the entire supply chain.

Transparency is an important factor in protecting the rights and health of people working in production.

Taste our ecologically sustainably traded products and feel free to ask us about our Fairtrade and organic certified items.

IFS international food standard

IFS – guaranteed quality!

We regularly have our high demands on the quality and safety of our products checked and confirmed by independent testing institutes.

As a trading company, we comply with the IFS Broker Standard in the same way that all our production plants comply with the International Food Standard (IFS-Food).

Award for constant Productquality

DLG award – taste that convinces

The German Agricultural Society (DLG) is one of the most important organizations for independent quality assessment of food.

Only foods with careful raw material selection, optimal processing and preparation receive the coveted DLG medals.

So we are also proud of the fact that in recent years various of our products have been awarded the highest prizes for food quality and taste by the DLG.

ASC – Know what you eat.

The ASC logo on packaging identifies products that contain fish and seafood from sustainable and responsible farming.

The Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) has developed high standards for this, which prescribe strict environmental protection criteria and also take social aspects into account.

All ASC-certified products must be traceable back to the farm of origin.

This transparency creates security and trust.

Fair trade – The rules of fair trade.

All our products bearing the Fairtrade seal are grown and traded in accordance with the international standards of Fairtrade International.

The Fairtrade standards set rules that must be followed along the entire value chain.

They include social, ecological and economic criteria to ensure the sustainable development of producer organizations in developing and emerging countries.

Amfori Erhaltung von Umwelt und Sozialstandards

BSCI – a fair deal for everyone!

We have been a member of amfori (formerly FTA) since 2008 and successfully participate in the BSCI program (Business Social Compliance Initiative). Through this, we are committed to compliance with social and environmental standards that apply to the entire production process of our goods.

Of course, the people who work in production are particularly in the foreground here. We see protecting their rights and health as a very important task, both as a supplier and as a producer.

Here you will find the BSCI Code of Conduct to which we are committed.

Bio hochqualitative Lebensmittel aus ökologisch und ökonomisch kontrolliertem Anbau

BIO – more than just healthy food!

Our organic food comes from ecologically controlled cultivation. This is not only good for people, but also for the environment.

They are grown without the use of pesticides and artificial fertilizers. In this way, groundwater is protected and significantly less climate-damaging greenhouse gas is produced.

Organic farming is deliberately practiced without the use of genetic engineering. The plants are not genetically modified, nor are the animals fed with genetically modified feed.

Thanks to a transparent production chain, each product can be traced back to its origin. At least once a year, all our farms are inspected to ensure that they comply with organic standards.

Due to our certification according to EC-organic regulation No. 834/2007 (inspection body: DE-ÖKO-012) we can supply you with organic products of your choice. Just contact us!

MSC Sustainable Fisheries – because we are all in the same boat

The sustainable management of our oceans is one of the most important tasks of our time.

As an international, independent and non-profit organization, the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is committed to counteracting overfishing of the oceans. To this end, the MSC has developed standards according to which fisheries around the globe can be audited and evaluated for their sustainability.

The standards stipulate, among other things, that gentle fishing methods be used for the seabed – that no overfished stocks be fished – that bycatch be minimized and that fishing operations be geared to sustainable management.

Consumers can easily identify products that meet these standards by the blue MSC seal on the product packaging.
