Responsibility for Mankind and Nature has been the central idea of our family-owned company since 1936; long-term planning as well as economic activity with respect for mankind and nature have always been part of the Voelkel tradition. Leading the way, thinking outside the box and breaking new ground have been and will remain at the center of all operational decisions. For example, we support regional fruit farming in meadow orchards, in this way protecting precious cultural heritage and habitat for a high diversity of animal and plant species. In addition, we lay great store by fair trade and long-term personal business relations with our fruit and vegetable farmers. The energy for our production is derived from renewable energy sources, and we work completely without genetic engineering.
