Responsibility for the future
Our company was founded in 1967 to process apples that were too small, too big or not colourful enough. Today we refer to it as "zero waste" - and in that sense, sustainability is part of our DNA. Throughout the whole production process of our fruits and apples, we implement environmental sustainability in different dimensions: for us, it comprises the three pillars of social, ecological and economic sustainability.
The three pillars of sustainability are embedded in our corporate strategy.
Strategically, we work on 6 core topics
- Water and wastewater
- Energy and climate protection
- Regional value creation
- Innovation, research & development
- Health and occupational safety
- Healthy products
