The sustainability of the Crespel & Deiters Group

For Crespel & Deiters, sustainability already begins with the purchase of the natural raw material. We only use EU wheat, with at least 75% coming from German cultivation. This guarantees that the raw material contains no genetically-modified constituent parts. Apart from this, our high-quality EU wheat is both high in nutrients and characterised by a high degree of purity. Thanks to our considerable use of regional wheat, Crespel & Deiters reduces the overall distance of our transport routes and the corresponding emissions to the greatest possible extent. In addition to strengthening the domestic farming industry at the same time.
