Gently dried: We process our kitchen herbs and superfoods according to high quality standards and control the entire process seamlessly. For best taste and 100% traceability!
Innovative and proven: optimized processes for an all-round successful product
Partly developed in-house to meet specific requirements exactly: Our machines are ideally matched to each other, optimally coordinated, and we benefit from the short distances between the field and further processing in the plant. No later than 60 minutes after harvesting, the herbs are transferred to the belt dryers, where they pass through our self-developed cleaning drum. We work with three drying lines: fully automatic and gentle, for aroma protection, color stability and low germ counts. Our philosophy? No standstill – we continuously optimize our processes and innovations to further expand our valuable know-how and deliver top products for customers worldwide.
Sustainable and careful in dealing with the environment: leaf by leaf for the best taste
Our dedication can be felt in every hand movement – you can see and taste it. To deliver our proven quality, we work with our cultivation advisors to select the most suitable and genetically unmodified seed for each farmer. In accordance with GAP and our own standards, we control and document the cultivation; for aromatic, fresh and healthy herbs, the harvest takes place at the optimal time for this. Together with our farmers, we attach great importance to a careful treatment of nature – in the Danube valley we have an ideal location for native kitchen herbs. But we also sow flower strips along the fields to provide a suitable habitat for bees, insects and wildlife. In addition, we continuously focus on making our production processes more environmentally friendly. Accordingly, we have had ourselves certified according to the „Environmental Management ISO“, ISO 14001. There is a link between sustainable agriculture and the resulting quality of food – we have believed this for generations.
