Environment and responsibility
As a craft bakery, we handle raw materials responsibly. At the present time, it is often expected that all baked goods are available all day and even till just before closing time in order to be able to fulfill every customer request. As a result, some baked goods, which we can not or may not donate, are wasted. We do not think that is a good solution in terms of environmental responsibility and sustainability. That’s why we try to plan as well as possible the night before our bakery team goes to work early to bake the various delicious specialties for our customers. So we reduce returns and waste after closing time. We therefore ask for your understanding, if in the evening not always all baked goods are available.
Our unsold baked goods are delivered daily to several kindergartens, the Tafel, the Schervierstube and many other organizations in Aachen.
In addition, bakery products that can no longer be sold are used to feed animals.

As a bakery, we pay particular attention to the environmentally friendly production of our baked goods. We regard and respect all binding environmental laws and regulations as a natural basis of our environmental protection activities.
We are committed to the environment and strive to continuously improve the environment. To achieve this, all processes in our bakery are regularly reviewed and assessed critically for their environmental impact. When selecting new operations and bakery products, the environmental impact is assessed in advance.
The economical use of raw materials, water and energy, as well as the responsible disposal of waste and wastewater are at the forefront of our work.
Only with conscious employees, a continuous improvement of environmental protection is possible. Therefore, sufficient information, motivation and training of our employees is essential. Employee suggestions with regard to corporate environmental protection are adequately taken into account in decisions.
We also try to transfer our environmental requirements to our partners and suppliers.
