At Zwergenwiese all recipes are created in-house by our passionate team until they are ready for market after a two to three year development period. The inspirations for our new products come from a wide variety of directions. Sometimes its down to a new raw material that we have discovered, sometimes an idea from a member of our staff and sometimes a customer request.
At Zwergenwiese everything is under one hat: from recipe development, across the complete production chain and through to marketing and customer care und. This guarantees transparency, product safety and customer proximity.
True to the motto: “As simple and natural as possible”, the delicatessen products from Zwergenwiese are noted for their especially gentle production methods and short processing times using small quantities. This ensures that the good ingredients and natural taste of the high quality organic raw materials are preserved and that we can completely do without dipping into the chemical box of tricks.
Our products do without flavour enhancers or additives like calcium citrate. To remain as true to the natural product as possible we use unprocessed natural products as much as possible. For example we use whole sweet lupin beans for our LupiLove spreads with all their valuable components. For our mustard specialities we use whole, gently ground peppercorns. You can taste this passion for good raw materials and innovative products in every jar.
Our buyers are always on the lookout for the best raw materials, and wherever possible from the surrounding region. Short distances, reliable contract partners, the promotion of regional organic farming and close contact with our suppliers play a decisive role in the selection of the organic farmers we use. The establishment of mutual trust and fair pricing have led to contractual partnerships of long standing, which guarantees security and reliability for both the farmers and for Zwergenwiese. Regular visits to the fields of our suppliers, internal and external laboratory analyses and sensory testing of every individual delivery guarantee the best quality. The short distances in our factory enable close cooperation between the buyers, quality assurance and the goods receiving department. After extensive control and acceptance, the raw materials are stored under the best possible conditions. Short storage times and the inspection of the wares prior to production ensure the best possible raw materials are used for the careful manufacture of our products.
