Sustainable supply chain

We assume responsibility along the supply chain and strive for a trusting and long-term relationship with our business partners that is characterised by fairness, reliability and mutual support.

Organic products supply chain

  • Filling materials come from controlled organic cultivation and controlled organic animal farming.
  • Social aspects of agriculture are taken into account.
  • Careful delivery and production – quality assurance through controls.

Certified down supply chain

  • All down and feathers used are certified and guaranteed traceable back to the egg.
  • Only feathers from animals slaughtered for the food industry are used, so there’s no live plucking.
  • Species-appropriate farming of the animals, rearing without force feeding.
