Origin of our ingredients
We take various aspects into consideration when making our selection. One of them is that we try to source every raw material regionally, if possible. Unfortunately, in some cases this is not feasible, so we resort to countries outside of Europe for this purpose. Due to the variety of ingredients you'll find in our products and the amount we need them in, we also need to ensure that raw materials are available in sufficient quantities to ensure a resilient value chain. This may mean that in exceptional cases, such as crop failures, we have to resort to other countries of origin at short notice.
