Spelt from South Germany
NATURATA builds on long term reliable partnerships with its raw material suppliers. An example of this is the farmers of a Demeter producer association in South Germany who grow spelt for NATURATA’s pasta products.
Twenty five farmers from southern Germany supply spelt for NATURATA’s pasta products. They belong to a Demeter producer association with which NATURATA has been working for already more than 20 years. Timely agreements, fair prices and reliable order agreements guarantee farmers have a sound financial basis for their business. Criteria which are propagated for fair trade with the third world and which are, unfortunately, not always matter of course in dealings with producers, have been applied here for years.
The climate in this region around the Schwäbische Alb is ideal for growing the delicate spelt. The processing plant which manufactures the pasta products is only a few kilometres away.
