Sustainable by conviction.
Maintaining a sustainable company strategy is no longer just an optional bonus point. As a family-owned business in its second generation, addressing and implementing sustainable strategies is particularly important to us and runs like a thread through our corporate philosophy.
Our core capabilities do not only comprise the use of exclusive food, but also the comprehensive management, conception and organization of events. And by respecting certain principles, we can contribute tremendously to a more sustainable behaviour in these areas.
As an event caterer, we find ourselves in the fortunate position to address not only a wide audience, but also our partners, suppliers and employees, and ultimately sensitize them for a more sustainable use of resources.
Our aim is not only to bequeath an ecologically intact structure to our future generations. Our responsibility also lies in a prudent personnel management and an open corporate culture towards disadvantaged social groups.
A fair and equitable personnel structure is part of our success: Traditionally, we fill our management positions with an above-average ratio of women, and our team of more than 20 nationalities ensures a refreshing human and cultural diversity. We therefore proudly support the "Charta of Diversity" to show the appropriate promotion and appreciation towards all our employees.
As a committed and future-oriented company, we also support other programs and initiatives that underline our identity. This includes labelling our products with the ecological “BIO” seal, qualifying for the employers' award "Top Job", and repeatedly achieving the "Green Globe" certification for our sustainable and fair corporate strategy.
You can talk –
or let your actions speak.
Using and encouraging
Despite our love towards the extraordinary: When it comes to logistics, transparency and an authentic food quality, we wholeheartedly build on regional expertise.
The advantages of regional products are obvious: Short and direct transport routes directly from the producer guarantee freshness and the highest food quality. At the same time, cost- and energy-consuming intermediate storage can be avoided.
Regionally sourced seasonal food implies a high degree of transparency and identification. Furthermore, the use of local products also supports resident farms and agricultural holdings.
Our salad and vegetable products from self-cultivation are delivered by Hans Hofmann Gemüsebau. The company Krug provides us with vegetables and fruits, with detectable regional origin and organic certification. The butchery Kraft supplies us with pork from local farms as well as beef from German, preferably regional, origin. Beer specialties are delivered by the Tucher brewery in Fürth – and our wines are cultivated at the Franconian vineyard Castell.
Efficiency as a standard
We use modern lighting technologies such as lasers or LED and can adjust the necessary emissions by using dynamic light control systems. Most of our used energy derives from renewable sources.
In support of high-powered logistics, we pay great attention to short and efficient routs and use re-useable transport boxes only. The use of our vehicles is adjusted to the actual transport volume and is carried out by using the most effective utilization of the available loading space.
Efficient use of material
We progressively use dishes and utensils made from renewable, biodegradable raw materials such as bamboo, wood and palm leaves. The recyclable organic waste after an event is fed into a biogas plant, and the remaining waste is consequently separated by plastic, glass, metal and paper.
For the environment
Paving the way for a better future
Since 2018, we support a project called “Beefuture”. Bee colonies die worldwide. Solely in Germany, more than 50% of all bees already disappeared. It has been proven scientifically, that bees have an enormous impact on our environment as well as on the population. Therefore, we help the bee from the threat of decline and owe five bee colonies.
Since the end of the ice age, the climate change is the biggest challenge the humanity has to face. Therefore, we decided to have our greenhouse gas emissions recorded and to get them balanced out by two climate protection projects in 2018 and 2019. By these two certificates, we support a hydropower project in Uganda as well as a local wind farm in India within the sovereignty of the United States. In addition to that we offer climate-neutral events.
Green Meetings & Events
Any event strains the environment in different ways. Thus, we would like to inform you about important aspects such as energy efficiency, emission reduction or climate neutrality, and work out eco-friendly concepts for our customers.
Following our "Green Globe" qualification as a sustainable company, we also offer environment-friendly event catering in the form of "Green Meetings" since 2011. The goal is to emphasize and actively live the awareness of sustainable behaviour in the catering and event industry, and to promote it through sustainable strategies. Attending a green meeting does not imply to abstain from taste, fun or entertainment – it rather offers the opportunity to enjoy an event with a clear conscience and a sense of responsibility.
With our expertise as a premium provider, we want to assist our customers in the planning, organization and implementation of sustainable events. Talk to us – we are happy to help!
