Projects / Sustainability

Taking responsibility and action worldwide

Since the beginning in 1987, Naturkost Übelhör has wanted to help as many farmers as possible to opt for organic production through a fair selling price and a reliable business policy. We thus help to preserve natural ecosystems and to prevent pollutants from entering our vulnerable environment. This is beneficial for all of us and an active and important contribution to environmental protection.

Organic is our promise to you. We do not import any raw materials which are available regionally in sufficient quantities. Our imports are focused on products that are either not sufficiently available or cannot be grown regionally for climatic reasons. This enables us to provide a variety of raw foodstuffs which are used and demanded by the food industry. This principle protects our regional organic farming. This will also hold true in the future!

Organic is not only our promise, but also a matter of trust. In order to offer our customers high quality products, we personally make sure of how and where they are grown in the areas of origin, and whether the existing resources are handled responsibly.

In this context, we visit projects around the world to convince ourselves that our goods all come from organic farming.

But part of our philosophy is also to support the development of international projects through expert advice given to local farmers. We pay special attention to quality, sustainability and compliance with fair trade policies, such as fair compensation and the prohibition of child labour.

We maintain long-term stable partnerships with our suppliers. In this way, but also by being on the ground in cultivation areas as mentioned above, we can offer a comprehensive range of organic raw materials. Various products are additionally certified by Naturland, UTZ, RSPO, Bio Suisse and NOP.

Furthermore, through our own constant checks and tests carried out by accredited laboratories, we can also guarantee the quality standards DIN ISO 22.000 and FSSC 22.000 which are demanded by industry.

Brazil nut (Bertholletia excelsa)

In botanical terms, the Brazil nut is a capsule rather than a nut. Brazil nut trees mainly grow in the Amazon rainforest of Bolivia and Brazil. They are symbiotically rooted there, meaning they cannot exist without the fauna and flora of the Amazon.
