Why we work organic, sustainable and fair?
Our decision to work organically, sustainably and fairly is based on our personal experiences and values. Growing up in an "eco" conscious environment, we have found time and time again that organically sustainably grown food is of higher quality than conventional produce.
For us, however, sustainability means more than just product quality. We also place great importance on ensuring fair prices for our producers and farmers. We strive for direct and friendly relationships with our partners and enjoy working with people who share our passion for healthy food.
Together, we are committed to projects that change farming methods and purchasing behavior and lead to positive changes in our society. Through our approach to life and values, we aim to set standards and make a positive impact on our society.
Agriculture based on the principles of organic farming is not only a matter of sustainability, but also of responsibility towards future generations.
What is different about organic dates?
Organically grown dates are a true blessing of nature. They are cultivated without the use of chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Instead, natural methods are used to promote plant health and soil fertility.
Furthermore, organic dates ripen naturally on the palm tree and are not preserved by fumigation or other chemical processes after harvest!
By not using harmful chemicals, soils are conserved, biodiversity is promoted and the ecosystem is kept in balance. This also affects the groundwater and surrounding waters by reducing pollution.
Organic date farming also helps support sustainable farming cooperatives. Smallholders and local communities are supported in their traditional way of life and their dependence on external inputs is reduced.
Demeter agriculture uses biodynamic preparations to strengthen the vital forces of the plants and the soil. The aim is to achieve a closed cycle in which farms are independent of external inputs such as chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
The Demeter seal guarantees consumers high-quality, biodynamically produced products and promotes sustainable agriculture in harmony with the principles of nature.
Fair & Direct
Our organic dates are predominantly grown by smallholder farmers or cooperatives who practice sustainable and socially responsible agriculture. Through our direct trade and close long-term partnerships, our farmers' income opportunities are strengthened and they receive adequate compensation.
Together, we give thought to various development projects. In this way, we contribute to a sustainable improvement in local living conditions and strengthen the communities in which we operate.
Organic dates are in the vast majority of cases the more sustainable choice, because they offer:
- Natural taste without chemical additives.
- Health benefits due to the absence of pesticides.
- Environmentally friendly cultivation that preserves nature.
- Support for sustainable agricultural practices and small-scale farming structures.
