What is the basis of the quality philosophy of your products?
As a family-run company, we accompany the entire production chain from the field to the harvest and processing of the raw materials to the finished product. Quality, care and the long-standing relation- ships with the farmers, our direct suppliers, have top priority for our agricultural engineers. We are convinced that only the best raw materials can be used to produce very good, high-quality products.
What is special about the raw materials you use?
When purchasing our raw materials, we place special emphasis on the cultivation, sowing and harvesting by selected contractors, which we control. Carrots, berries and grapes are just some of the raw materials we use. But they all have one thing in common: they are food. And they remain so throughout the entire production process, right up to the finished product.
What do you see as the particular strength of the products?
Our experts have around 30 years of experience in processing fruit, vegetables and edible plants. This makes us real pioneers in the production of colouring foods. With this knowledge, we are able both to process the valuable raw materials gently and to produce particularly brilliant colours that can be used to colour food and beverages completely naturally.
And what exactly does „pure colour from fruit and vegetables“ mean?
Our products are 100% clean label in application. We also refrain from using organic solvents, dyes and preservatives and ingre- dients of animal origin. This means: We produce a quality product for the professional user from very high-quality raw materials.
