Here you will find an overview of our fresh vegetables.
ORGANIC VEGETABLES FROM THE REGION
We obtain our organic vegetables mainly from our local environment. In the last a few years, the area around Westhof Bio has become one of the most important and largest organic vegetable-growing areas in Europe. A total of approximately 3,000 hectares are farmed organically in Dithmarschen, Westhof Bio itself cultivating 1000 ha.
We guarantee the organic quality of our regional vegetables through careful selection of producers, our organic-only concept and the good and close cooperation with the organic farmers.
ORGANIC VEGETABLES FROM GERMANY
Our organic vegetables come mostly from Schleswig-Holstein. Nevertheless, we also process organic vegetables from other regions of Germany, mainly Niedersachsen, Nordrhein-Westfahlen und Rheinland-Pfalz.
Our organic-only concept, the careful selection of our producers and a trusting cooperation with our organic farmers guarantee us best organic quality.
ORGANIC VEGETABLES FROM EUROPE
In order to meet the strong demands for high-quality organic vegetables all year round, we also buy organic vegetables from international producers. Our importing countries are the Nether-lands, Israel, Denmark, United Kingdom and Austria. Since we import only organic vegetables and select our suppliers and producers carefully, we are able to guarantee consistent organic quality.
We maintain a very good contact with our suppliers and organic farmers in Europe. In sunny Israel, for example, organic carrots are harvested when they are out of season in Germany and in its neighboring countries. Thus, in order to be able to also offer our customers organic carrots from April to July, we import them.
The production and control measures for organic production in Israel are recognized by the EC Eco-Regulation 1235/2008 as being equivalent. In order to import organic products from Israel, Westhof Bio-Gemüse GmbH & Co. KG agrees to the following requirements:
- As importer and initial recipient, we are subject to the control procedures of the EC Eco-Regulation.
