Responsible use of technology

We regard technology as being a road map leading to a responsible-minded future. This is why we in the nature network® choose the technologies that we work with very carefully. Our aim is to conserve Nature's treasures while safeguarding the quality of our products by means of environmentally friendly production plants.

Using energy

We have installed a photovoltaic system on four roof surfaces covering a total area of 2000 square metres. This enables us to generate 400,000 kilowatt hours of CO2-free electricity every year. We also use the process heat produced by our extraction systems to heat our office wing and production buildings. This means that we are able to cover the energy requirements for these buildings almost all year round. And we are able to reuse nearly all of the solvent required for the decaffeination process by recovering it and returning it to the pertinent loop.

Assuring quality

Technology takes on another - just as important - dimension within the nature network® at the same time: it assures the quality of our products. This is even more important because of the many challenges that arise in the course of manufacturing plant-based products. We have therefore established a comprehensive, certified quality management system that documents every single process. Furthermore, our products are permanently monitored and analysed by PhytoLab, the independent, accredited laboratory that specialises in herbal raw materials within our Group.
