Demeter-Felderzeugnisse was chosen on Friday evening, December 4th 2020, as the winner of the German Sustainability Award in the category "Company - Biodiversity".
In cooperation with the Federal Government, the best concepts against global warming, resource overuse, species extinction and social division were awarded.
The effort and commitment of Demeter-Felderzeugnisse for sustainable land management, proper nutrition for humans and animals and stable social coexistence were honored with the first prize of the German Sustainability Award in the biodiversity category.
Through our activity as a producer, manufacturer and trader of exclusively organic products and sustainable food, Demeter-Felderzeugnisse GmbH increases the demand for these products. This is how we guarantee our farmers economic security and long-term biodynamic or organic cultivation.
Through their soil-conserving and humus-increasing organic farming the farmers of our producer community provide i.a. healthy soils, biodiversity and increased water quality in their respective cultivation areas. The use of humus, the cultivation of different grasses and clover or the use of organic fertilizers promote soil life and thus also biodiversity. In order to avoid long transport routes, special organic products such as sweet potatoes and edamame are cultivated in regional fields. By planting hedges and grass strips, Demeter-Felderzeugnisse create additional habitats for insects, birds and other animals.
We, the team at Demeter-Felderzeugnisse, are continuously working to establish our idea of sustainable organic farming in society and to clarify the value and benefits. “Agriculture plays an important role in the fight against climate change and the loss of biodiversity - it is both affected and partly responsible for the consequences of the crisis.” As Stefan Schulze-Hausmann, initiator of the German Sustainability Award, says: “Especially in times of crisis, attitude and discourse are essential and examples asked ”.
We are aware of this responsibility and look forward to being part of the solution.
We feel honored and would like to thank all employees and partners who make it possible with their daily work.
