Raw Materials Procurement for Bio
At TEEKANNE, we firmly believe that we can only fulfill our responsibility for future generations if we exert as much influence as possible on the sustainable cultivation of the raw materials used for our products.
We attach great importance to increasing the procurement of certified organic raw materials on a continuous basis. In this way, we help to further develop organic farming and to protect our environment in a sustainable manner. This means that we can also support tea drinkers who wish to maintain a healthy, natural diet free of synthetic crop protection agents and artificial additives – an important trend which is very much on the increase. As a company, we aim to respond to this trend and make an active contribution to the protection of our eco systems at the same time.
What does Bio actually mean and why is Bio so important to TEEKANNE?
The EU Bio Logo identifies food that comes from certified organic agriculture. Organic farming focuses primarily on sustainability, conserves natural resources and has a positive impact on our environment. It also makes a significant contribution to the preservation of the cultural landscape. All our TEEKANNE Bio products are marked with the following logos:
The main idea of organic farming is to work in harmony with nature.
Organic farming pursues the following goals:
The following measures play a central role:
