This is what Frank Erbacher (family entrepreneur of Erbacher the food family) has to say:
“We make sustainable nutrition - but what does that mean? It is affordable and wholesome. What we need is simple and healthy food that nourishes us and that we can enjoy – it is created and made in a way that respects the climate and nature.
We at Erbacher the food family are visionaries and pioneers of sustainable nutrition. We are working to ensure that our products are increasingly climate-neutral and that animals do not compete with humans for food. At the same time, nutrition that can be sustained in the future is also a sustainable business model for anyone who works in the field.
We are a family business and enjoy working with other family businesses in the value chain. We also go beyond the boundaries of our own value chain by taking our climate responsibility further. We consider aspects that lie outside the climate impact of our own products in order to achieve ecological, social and economic sustainability, especially in disadvantaged rural regions.”
As a member of Erbacher the food family, Josera belongs to one of the most traditional family-run companies. For us, tradition does not imply clinging to the past - but rather that we are always on the lookout for new ways. That is precisely what our tradition is: we are pioneers and trailblazers for sustainable pet food - and have been for many decades.
In doing so, we pursue a great vision, and this means producing pet food that is species-appropriate and working together with many people from all over the world, with whom we share the common goal of sustainability.
Being a pioneer and a visionary also means that we keep a close eye on our carbon footprint. We avoid and reduce CO2 emissions wherever we can and if we reach our limits, we compensate for the emissions with CO2 certificates.
This is what Stephan Hoose (CEO Josera petfood) has to say:
We believe there are many layers to sustainability. It goes from dealing with employees, such as sustainable further development of individual areas of responsibility, to the development of new packaging or the reduction of resources.
Sustainability is firmly anchored in our DNA: this runs through all our brands in the pet food sector, with our personal commitment to many foundation projects - not forgetting the Ntakata Mountains forest conservation project in Tanzania. As sustainability is an integral part of our philosophy, we have naturally continued to work on and adhere to it even during the COVID-19 crisis. In line with the food industry as a whole, this state of emergency has not led to a drop in sales for us. The sufficient supply of raw materials has become more challenging, but has been ensured at all times through adequate risk and process management.
Personally, I would be very pleased if other companies also took their responsibility as we do in the food family. This is the only way we can make a lasting difference without political and private pressure - even in challenging times like a global pandemic.”Read more about our sustainable actions
