Healthy food and the protection of our ecosystem, an awareness of fair trade and of a good working relationship with business partners – these are the values which still hold true at home.
We combine the best value for money to our customers and show responsibility in dealing with producers.
Competence in advice and service as well as flexibility when it comes to the individual wishes of our customers – for our staff, simply a matter of course.
What began on May 1, 1987, when the company was founded by Josef Übelhör, has now grown into an internationally represented company which sells more than 450 products and has 50 employees. The loyalty of the employees to the company and the resulting competence of each individual is a real bonus for our customers
With its own high-bay warehouse, a logistics system individually tailored to customers wishes and with subsidiaries and partnerships in Mexico and Hamburg, Naturkost Übelhör is able to supply any quantity of products, at the highest quality, at guaranteed fixed prices and at the agreed time. Customers benefit from the constant availability of raw materials.
Even the cosmetics industry and pet food manufacturers now belong to our clientele.
Since the company was founded, the number of employees has grown steadily. Our goal is to grow at least as strongly as the organic market and ideally a little bit faster.
We are also a company that has been taking on trainees since 1977. Offering in-service training and further training, promoting the development and growing competence of each individual – these are declared business goals to which we are committed.
The preservation of natural ecosystems is inextricably linked to the global expansion of organic food production. Through fair purchasing prices and reliable business policies, we help to ensure that more and more farmers opt for environmentally friendly farming practices and thus make an active contribution to environmental protection.
Already in the founding year 1987, we helped a group of Demeter farmers to achieve reasonable prices for their products on the European market. In this tradition, we are still on the look-out for partners to whom we can always offer a real alternative to the overexploitation of nature.
We see ourselves as mediators between farmers and trade. Naturkost Übelhör is the right place for anyone looking for a particular organic product and needing a reliable importer for it.
We operate in both directions: farmers who want to get their products onto the European market are in good hands with us, just as product enhancers or traders who are looking for new organic food. The former can rely on our knowledge of the market. The latter benefit from our global network of potential producers that has grown rapidly over the years.
We do not import any raw materials that can be produced by organic farmers in our country in sufficient quantities.
Our imports are limited to products that are regionally not adequately available, or for climatic reasons can not be grown here.
The diversity of the food market demands products that have to be grown, for example, in South America or Africa. Everything we do is focused on this.
In a self-commitment to domestic agriculture, we categorically reject a cost-driven competition for raw materials produced here.
