Our environment – the most important resource of all
Our companies process the very best natural raw materials. We depend on nature and are fully aware of our responsibility to care for the environment when using and cultivating agricultural land.
This is why we have joined forces with our milk suppliers to implement sustainable resource managements.
Our milk suppliers
- We obtain our most important raw material – milk – from within a 100-km radius of our Elsdorf site in Lower Saxony. The fresh milk is collected from the farmers at least every other day.
- We buy our milk exclusively from farmers who undergo intensive quality testing and submit to regularly scheduled audits. The dairy farmers are also trained by certified supplier consultants so as to ensure a consistently high level of quality.
- We are located in a production region known for its excellent soil properties. We expect extremely positive developments in terms of future milk processing volumes. The North German Plain is one of the few regions in Germany which is set to experience positive developments in milk production in the coming years and decades.
- This means that in terms of agricultural conditions, the future raw material base for our companies looks to be on very solid ground.
