Many years we occupied ourselves with the subject “organic nourishment” and “organic agriculture”. We did nearly 10 years of bio-dynamic farming in Switzerland (DEMETER), practising and experiencing a form of agriculture without using synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, with the aim of conserving and improving soil fertility.
When we stopped farming and therefore did not have any home grown products at all, we learned to appreciate “RAPUNZEL” highly: there was everything available we needed and it was 100% organic. And since for us the protection of the environment but also our health is very important, we found a “new way of living”. We later worked in the catering business where we also purchased as many RAPUNZEL-products as we could. In all those years we were more than happy with the qualitiy and taste!
Organic food is NOT ONLY for “HEALTH FREAKS” but also for “HEARTY EATERS” AND GOURMETS.
In Spring 2004 we returned to the U.K. and decided to work with RAPUNZEL, introducing a part of its large range of products; this even more so, as RAPUNZEL is also DEMETER-Partner. We now offer these products to our customers. You may shop on-line, give us a ring or send us a fax or an email. It is our pleasure to supply you with these goods.
ABOUT RAPUNZEL, FAIR TRADE & ORGANIC FARMING
RAPUNZEL is one of the oldest and largest German whole food companies. They began more than 25 years ago by selling basic, purely organic products like muesli and nut butters. As the organic food trade developed, more and more products containing ingredients such as cocoa or unrefined cane sugar found their way into the company’s range. As these products do not thrive in a European climate, they must be imported from so-called “developing countries”. From the very beginning of RAPUNZEL’s business associations with producers from these countries 15 years ago, the company made it their concern to improve the living standards of the farmers as directly and efficiently as possible.
If RAPUNZEL began with only one trading partner, a cooperative in Bolivia, they are now proud to have a regular group of 8 “Hand in Hand” (Fair Trade) partners. These supply the company with six raw ingredients used in almost 50% of their products. A long-term cooperation based on trust, a continuous exchange of information and regular personal contact are the guarantee for RAPUNZEL’s high quality. The inspection by independent and external certification organisations provides additional assurance. Unlike other fair trade organisations, RAPUNZEL has always devoted itself exclusively to dealing with organic products. The organic quality is guaranteed not only by their good name, but also by the EU Regulation on Organic Farming. For more information about Organic Farming and Fair Trade please see the following text or order the brochure “HAND IN HAND, Organic and Fair Trade”. We will be happy to send it to you.
