As far as possible, we grow the vegetables for our dry products on our own fields and process them in our drying facility. This way we avoid long transport routes and protect the environment. Waste separation and recycling is just as natural for us as reducing our energy requirements and using modern, energy-saving technology. We purchase non-domestic products worldwide and process them according to European standards. This way we can offer you sustainable, valuable and healthy products.
In order to offer you the best quality, we have a quality system in accordance with the FSSC ISO 22,000 standard, which ensures that all applicable regulations and laws are complied with. This is checked and confirmed in regular external audits and numerous customer audits. Our employees receive regular training and further education.
We operate our own microbiological laboratories:
Analytical / sensory laboratory: Incoming goods / production-related investigations (sieve analyzes, residual moisture, sand content, color, etc.)
Microbiological laboratory: Incoming goods / production-related tests (total germ count, yeast & mold, Enterobacter, E-Coli, Coliforms, etc.), Salmonella monitoring as part of all incoming goods on the basis of an accredited quick test
