Appreciation of man, animal and plant –
How we counteract food waste in Brodowin
Until the time you prepare one of our food at home, it has already experienced a lot. For example, a plant was cultivated, cared for and watered, weed was removed and protected from pests. Or an animal was conceived, born and raised, fed and kept clean.
And in any case, every day in Brodowin we were busy doing our best to produce an excellent food – whether it was milk, cheese, sausage or vegetables.
However, according to a study by the WWF in 2015, some 18 million tonnes of food were lost in Germany. According to the latest investigations, more than half of this would have been avoidable. Particularly in food-producing companies, edible products are disposed of in large quantities, in many cases only small deviations from the standard are decisive.
We in Brodowin oppose this trend!
Although we offer our customers only impeccable products of excellent quality for sale – but with one important difference: For example, if we harvest far too small cabbages or the leaves of the leek have withered, this is no reason for us to dispose of the food. In our own kitchen, we process it into a wide variety of dishes and have not only avoided unnecessary waste, but also gained a tasty new product.
It goes without saying that current food standards are adhered to. Products that are clearly no longer suitable for human consumption will find thankful customers in our stables or at fattening farms, which we will supply as required. Especially pigs are happy about the feed; as omnivores, much of it belongs to their diet anyway. The last option – our compost heap – has shrunk to a size that is hardly worth mentioning since the introduction of this measure.
