Sustianability – daily practice at Ziegler Organic
At the turn of the millennium, founding Ziegler Organic as pioneering company in organic and sustainable food business created the basis for our entrepreneurship based on the idea of sustainability. We fulfil our commitment to organic principles by reasonsable working processes based on environmental and social responsibility.

Current steps are:
We cover our electricity needs from 100% renewable energy sources. our company area and factory roofs will be equipped with solar panels in the next years with the goal to cover our energy needs from our own photovoltaic technology. All company cars will be switched to electric cars by 2023. Container logistics from the port will be run by train systems instead of truck transports by 2023.
For a better world climate
As responsibly acting company, climate protection is part of our company goals. Even if we can state to act climate-neutral since the early 2000s due to our organic assortment, our goal must be to contribute even more to a reduction of CO2. An important example is our assortment policy. Coming from a traditonal history as overseas importer, products form EU origin have today gained the most import position in the Ziegler Organic product sales thus saving unneccessary seaway transports wehrever possible.
“We only import products which do not grow in Germany or neighboring European countries. This is how we reduce long transport ways harmful to the climate. We strategically grow products like buckwheat, millet, amaranth and lentils which grow in our climatic zone in partnership with regional organic farmers.”
