REGIONAL AND NATIONAL ORIGIN
ORGANIC VEGETABLES FROM THE REGION
At Westhof Bio, we take pride in sourcing the majority of our organic vegetables from the local area. In recent years, our region has emerged as one of Europe’s most significant and expansive hubs for organic vegetable cultivation, boasting a total of approximately 3,000 hectares of organic farmland throughout Dithmarschen.
Here at Westhof Bio, we cultivate a staggering 1200 hectares of this pristine organic land ourselves, ensuring that our products are grown with care and attention to detail at every step of the process. Our commitment to local sourcing not only supports the local economy, but also allows us to offer you the freshest and most delicious organic vegetables possible.
We believe that maintaining the highest standards of organic quality is not only important for the health of our customers, but also for the health of our planet. By working closely with local organic farmers, we are able to maintain a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing the organic farming industry, and can continuously improve the quality of our products. With Westhof Bio, you can trust that every vegetable you purchase is grown with the utmost care and attention to sustainability, health, and flavor.
ORGANIC VEGETABLES FROM GERMANY
While the majority of our organic vegetables hail from the verdant fields of Schleswig-Holstein, we also source a wide variety of premium organic produce from other regions throughout Germany. Our commitment to excellence and sustainability extends to every corner of the country, with our carefully selected partner farmers located in Lower Saxony, North Rhine Westphalia, Rhineland Palatinate and beyond.
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 Netherlands, Israel, Spain 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 EU-VO 2021/2306 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.
- The Israeli exporter and the Israeli farmers are certified by an organic control body listed in the list of third countries.
- All farmers have a GlobalGAP certificate.
- Each delivery of organic vegetables is accompanied by a control certificate which is emitted by the responsible organic body in Israel.
- We inform our inspection body ABCERT AG of each imported consignment of organic vegetables.
Our team consists of highly dedicated and qualified professionals, each with their own area of expertise. Despite our unique departments, we work closely together and prioritize strong collaboration. We foster a sense of community within our team, recognizing each member as a valuable contributor to our highly experienced and dynamic staff.
