Sustainability

Our guiding principle: we want to work in a way that is respectful of both society and nature. That’s why responsibility, respect, honesty, fairness and transparency guides us in whatever we do.

When it comes down to sustainability we are second to none. We don’t just write about it – we also support various initiatives that promote biological diversity and work in both nature conservation and enviromental education. It’s actions that make a difference…

Maximum flavour and maximum responsibility.

High-quality raw ingredients and water of the finest quality are the most important elements in every bottle of BIONADE. Naturally, we endeavour to ensure that we act responsibly when it comes to nature and its resources. We therefore work exclusively with organic partners and promote organic farming in the region. You can find out more about this in our sustainability reports.

Wow, that was a serious section.

Bee sustainable with BIONADE.

There wouldn’t be any BIONADE if it wasn’t for the bees. It is thanks to them that we have the recipe for the alcohol-free fermentation of sugar. But, more importantly: our entire ecosystem would collapse without bees. That’s why we started beekeeping ourselves in the spring of 2014. Since then, our two beehives have become an important part of the family and live right by our quince and meadow orchard in the BIONADE experimental garden.

We love the Rhön region.

In 1991, the Rhön was named a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The Rhön is just beautiful and therefore worth protecting. In order to ensure it stays that way, we’ve been working closely together with UNESCO since 2005. Together we support projects that protect plants, animals and gives our best to bring economy, ecology and society into harmony. That’s why all of our ingredients come from organic farms and the majority are sourced from the Rhön.

It’s also the same reason why we work hard to protect part of the Streu, a tributary of the Franconian Saale river. Furthermore we work together with the Rhön-Grabfeld Association for Protection of Landscape (LPV) and the Regional Society for Protection of Birds (LBV) to protect endangered indigenous species.
