From Organic Ingredients to Wholesome Snacks, Rapunzel Meets Your Organic Needs
Supplying healthful kitchens around the globe with delicious vegetarian, organic foods, Rapunzel is a German company that’s been part of the organic movement from the start. Connecting people with the healing energy of life through clean, natural food, they make everything from bouillon to tomato sauces, and noodles to coffees. Many of their food products are made to be healthy ingredients for your own special recipes. Others, like their dried, crunchy apple chips are great for nibbling as snacks.
Protecting Ecosystems Comes Naturally To Rapunzel
Rapunzel’s company policy commits them to both fairness and sustainability. In both cases, they use these terms not just as slogans, but as the foundation of a roadmap to practical improvements in the world. They set environmental goals from their operations, including using less energy and reducing their emissions. Then they work hard to meet or exceed those targets, followed up by inspections by independent experts. Rapunzel also helps to increase the use of organic agriculture, improving soil fertility, guarding biodiversity and natural resources, and more.
Rapunzel’s Vegetarian Origins & Fair Trade Partnerships Define its Mission
The story of Rapunzel began almost half a century ago in Augsburg, Germany. Joseph Wilhelm and Jennifer Vermeulen founded a small farming commune that helped to support itself with health food store. The delicious natural, organic, vegetarian foodstuffs sold at the store became the seed from which Rapunzel sprouted and flourished. Headquartered in a renovated dairy in Legau, the company set up a fair trade partnership with 100% organic farmers in Turkey. This remains an important part of their sustainable, ethical sourcing to this day.
