Griesson - de Beukelaer has been active in the field of sustainability for many years, in order to safeguard and maintain the natural resources available to present and future generations.
UTZ certified cocoa
As a family business we naturally support sustainable thinking and actions. In order to simultaneously guarantee the highest quality, we buy 100%
UTZ certified cocoa for all of our branded products. This promotes socially and environmentally friendly cocoa farming.
Eggs from alternative farming methods
We are aware of our responsibility towards nature and therefore attach great importance to the origin of our raw ingredients. Since early 2007 we have only used barn eggs. For this, in 2009 Griesson – de Beukelaer received a "Golden Egg" animal welfare award from the international animal protection organisation "Compassion in World Farming."
Palm oil from sustainable sources
Griesson - de Beukelaer supports the use of palm oil and palm kernel fat from sustainable sources. Since 29 March 2010 we have been a member of the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) and have supported the cultivation and use of certified palm fat. The RSPO is the best-known certification system for sustainable palm fat (Our RSPO certification). Since the end of 2015 we use 100% RSPO-certified palm(kernel) oil. The continuous increase of segregation quality is our current goal. In 2016 we already achieved 67% segregation. Track our progress at www.rspo.org.
Since 2015 we have been also a member of the German forum on sustainable palm oil (FONAP). We are engaged to implement additional criteria in the supply chain e.g. traceability to the origin, stop of cultivation on peet land, ban of critical pesticides or the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
We use recyclable packaging materials for the packaging of our products. On products that we market in France, it is obligatory to refer to the “Triman” logo in this respect. Find out more about the Triman Logo.
Use of organic raw ingredients
For our DeBeukelaer Cereola Hafer-Cookie we use only selected natural ingredients from organic farms and do not add any flavourings or flavour enhancers during production. As a result, this certified organic product carries the European Union's Bio-Siegel.
