In an average year, we source 40 per cent of our fruits and vegetables from Germany, 85 per cent of which are sustainably grown. In this way, we support regional producers, strengthen the local economy and actively contribute to climate protection.
When purchasing meat products, animal welfare is a primary concern. We source 82 per cent of our beef, 90 per cent of our pork and 74 per cent of our poultry from producers in Germany.
