Sustainable delicious food and short transport routes
Herzogsägmühle is an institution belonging to “Diakonie in München und Oberbayern e. V.). It embraces various craft businesses, such as a bakery, butcher, nursery for vegetable and fruit and many more. They offer people in social difficulties a place to live and work. All companies also offer training courses.
The nursery has been certified by Bioland, a German association for organic farming, for 30 years, and the other companies are also working according to Bioland guidelines. They can thus offer Hochland healthy regional and seasonal organic products for the canteen. The collaboration also helps to secure jobs and apprenticeships in Herzogsägmühle.
The proximity to Schongau has the advantage of short transport distances and also helps to significantly reduce packaging waste. Because all food is delivered in stainless steel containers and transport boxes.
Hochland employees can convince themselves at lunch in the canteen or at the snack bar during their break that the products are delicious.
Why are we at Hochland so much convinced of this campaign? It’s because it makes sustainability tangible.
The assortment our canteen buys from Herzogsägmühle will be extended step by step.
