Spelt from South Germany

Naturata relies on long-term, reliable partnerships with its raw material suppliers. One example of such a partnership is that with the farmers of the Demeter producer association in South Germany which cultivates the spelt for our pasta.

Twenty-five farmers from South Germany supply spelt for Naturata’s pasta products. They belong to a Demeter producer association which has partnered Naturata successfully for over 30 years. 

What's special about our pasta is the collaboration between Naturata and the farmers which is based on years of personal contact with the Demeter producer association.

Our responsibility to man and nature

It is especially important to Naturata that fairtrade conditions also prevail here in Germany. That's why every year talks are held with the farmers at the round table. The aim is to inform each other and work together to create a fair spelt price, which will do justice to all involved and remains attractive to the end customer.
Thus, the farmers are offered an economically secure basis and in return Naturata is supplied to the amount of spelt despite the high demand quantity and scarcity of raw materials.

Quality promise

The optimum soil and weather conditions make the region an ideal location for cultivating spelt. Because the robust, hardy, often referred to as "ancient grain" grain, thrives particularly well on the stony, humus poor soils and is resistant to weed and fungus.

For the Naturata pasta, traditional types of spelt are used, such as the Oberkulmer Rotkorn. It gives the pasta the fine nutty taste. In addition, it is a big plus of the variety that it is grown very much because of their popularity and thus there is a lot of experience.
In addition to the Oberkulmer Rotkorn other biodynamic varieties are grown. Since spelt biodiversity is very low, the varieties must be developed and bred. Otherwise, they would move too far away from real conditions and could not survive without adaptation to climate and soil conditions.
