Sustainability & responsibility

Wheat is cultivated worldwide. Genetically modified wheat is becoming more and more widespread and in Germany, too. There have already been field trials with genetically modified wheat. We refrain from genetically manipulated varieties and have therefore been working with farmers from China for many years. They rely on GMO-free wheat varieties and provide the basis for our refined extracted wheat germ oil Ph. Eur., which we refine ourselves in Europe.
