Delicious sustainable products from imperfect Swiss fruits and vegetables
Too small, too crooked, too big, overripe or too much? What actually happens to Swiss fruit and vegetables that do not meet the visual quality standards for retail sale? Often, they are thrown away or left lying in the fields, even though they are of impeccable quality and tastes wonderful. Around a third of all food is lost en route from field to plate. This is where our idea of sustainability comes in: under the motto "Stop Food Waste", we work together with OGG Berne foodwaste.ch and various agricultural organisations to save such food in time and process it into delicious non-perishable finished products which we sell through selected sales channels and also in our online shop.

We save food from going to waste - A project that is close to our Heart !
This year, for the very first time, we were able to process Swiss strawberries - which for various reasons were unsuitable for the supermarket shelves - into intensely fruity strawberry syrup. We are already working on new products. With an enormous variety of fruits and vegetables, we could never run out of ideas.
