Appreciation of man, animal and plant –
How we counteract food waste in Brodowin
Until the time you prepare one of our products at home, it has already experienced a lot. For example, a plant was firstly cultivated, cared for and watered. Weeds where removed and it was protected from pests. For animals, they are conceived, born, raised, fed and kept clean with our upmost attention.
In every case, each day in Brodowin, we do our best to produce an excellent and top quality end product – whether it is milk, cheese, sausage or vegetables.
According to a study done by the WWF in 2015, some 18 million tonnes of food in Germany is wasted every year, or 313 kg/second. The latest investigations show that more than half of this could 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!
Albeit that we offer our customers only impeccable products of excellent quality for sale, there is one important difference. Such as; if we harvest cabbages that are too small for distribution or the leaves on our leaks have withered, our kitchen processors them into a wide variety of dishes. We no reason to dispose of this food. Not only have we avoided unnecessary waste, but have also gained a tasty new product.
It goes without saying that current food standards are constantly 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. Pigs are especially 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.
