For us, sustainability means fulfilling our holistic responsibility for nature, people and the economy. In concrete terms, this means, for example:
Sustainability in our business
Conserving resources is a fundamental matter of course for us which is reflected in our daily actions and especially in our production. With constant investments in state-of-the-art machinery and equipment, we contribute to a continuous improvement of our energy efficiency. For example, with our own combined heat and power plants, which contribute to the sustainable supply of electricity and heat as an efficient climate protection measure.
Less is more
We strive to permanently reduce our energy consumption and emissions and continuously improve our energy efficiency with the help of our own environmental officers and through the use of an energy management system.
For reasons of hygiene and product safety, we use plastic as the packaging material for our products. But even with our packaging, less is more. In the long term, we strive for optimal recyclability of our packaging and are continuously looking for innovative, sustainable and contemporary packaging solutions.
We source the raw materials for our sausage products as close to home as possible to keep delivery distances short. Over 45% of the raw materials are sourced from within a radius of 100 km. In the case of meat, this means that we primarily source it from medium-sized slaughterhouses and cutting plants in North Rhine-Westphalia or the neighbouring federal states. Of this, 100% is QS pork, as well as a steadily increasing proportion of animal welfare standard husbandry form 2. The palm oil used in some cases is 100% certified palm oil of the SG segregated level.
Vegan? Of course!
We want to contribute to sustainability not only in our production, but also with our product range. Our vegan products are purely plant-based and thus contribute to a reduced CO2 footprint. In this way, they represent a sustainable and contemporary alternative to our meat-based products, which is very close to our hearts.
