You can rely on that.
100 % organic quality
To our mind, finest organic quality permits no compromises. The raw ingredients we work with are therefore 100% organic, in the majority of cases grown in accordance with the ecological guidelines of growers’ associations such as Demeter, Naturland and Bioland. Organic farming does not use any chemical or synthetic pesticides or fertilisers. Instead it stimulates plant vitality. Healthy soils, especially high-altitude locations or protective shade trees are prerequisites for the quality of our organic raw ingredients and protect the local eco-systems.
Sustainability, social responsibility, fair practices
We process fairly traded raw materials. As a matter of principle, we are committed to ensuring that the entire supply chain is designed for the benefit of nature and people. With the We Care certification, an independent body has confirmed that we care about sustainability throughout the supply chain.
Our work begins with a journey to the fields of our cultivation partners, where the plants grow that will later become part of our products. If you want to produce good food, you have to be on site and know your partners.
Stringent quality control
Complete supply chain transparency, from field to finished product, forms the basis of our quality work. The demands we make of our suppliers go way beyond the statutory requirements. As part of our IFS-certified quality management process, Lebensbaum products pass through a defined schedule of checks every step of the way. All chemical and microbiological analyses are carried out by well-known, accredited laboratories.
Since 2010, our production facilities have been running on a carbon-neutral basis. Heating is provided by one of Lower Saxony’s highest-capacity geothermal power facilities and throughout the entire business the electricity used is 100% green. All company buildings have above-average insulation. All letters and parcels are sent by a carbon-neutral postal service and raw ingredients are transported by ship. The list of green initiatives is a long one and is constantly being extended.
We have been guided by our purity principle since 1979. Whether coffee, tea or spices: we use 100 % natural ingredients. And we haven’t wasted our time trying to come up with a justification for this – we simply love the delicious taste of nature.
