Innovations


Partnership, service, consultancy and product development have always been cornerstones of our business.

"Juicy"

Sweet taste profile by means of natural juice concentrates. No sugars or sweeteners are necessary (low/no calories). Exceptional fruity taste, hot and cold. Micro-encapsulated flavors with over 24 months shelf-life. The dry loose tea retains its intense aroma. Rich flavor is not lost during brewing.

Iced tea cold brew

Blended tea with cold water. One of our latest innovations is cold water brewing. The filter bag will be placed in cold water and infuses within 5 minutes to a full flavor.

Tea to go

Innovative tea bag for "take aways" in convenience stores, petrol stations, coffee shops, hotels and catering. The tea can go into the "to go cup" or a tea pot and can be easily removed by pulling the thread upwards out of the water without having to remove the tea bag from the cup or tea pot. No more dribbling or drops. Transparent nylon tea bag for valuable leaf teas and tea specialities in the premium segment. Large labels are optimal by providing sufficient space for branding.

Quick Infusion

Perfect tea in 30 seconds. A special development for the K-cup machines, pad, capsule and espresso machines espresso machines. The encapsulated tea cartridge is being placed into the machine and a complete infusion of the tea takes 20-30 seconds.

Product Safety


Product safety is one of the most important aspects in today's food & beverage industry. All our products have been carefully selected by qualified and trained experts and are constantly analyzed and checked by independent laboratories for adherence quality standards. For individual requests we can order an independent analysis for any particular standard.

Quality In Every Aspect

Taste Testing

We employ long-term experienced "tea tasters" from the industry. Sensoricial (taste) and optical testing, an evaluation of the dry tea leaf, the leaf after steeping, as well as the color of the infusion has been conducted and categorized at our facilities for over 100 years.
We test our teas with state of the art quality control equipment and compare hundreds of infusions daily. All this, enables us to optimize quality and price and develop creative product compositions while maintaining our focus on the taste of the infusions. Several centuries of experience in the tea industry, in combination with continuous improvement and development of our quality management, enables us to offer consistent quality and analytically perfect products which fulfill our customers' demands.

Laboratory Analysis

All our teas are constantly tested for unwanted residues (e.g. fertilizer, pesticides and contaminants) by specialized laboratories within the industry which undergo periodic ring tests (part of an external quality assurance program for a measuring method).
We purposely outsource this process to unbiased specialists who are capable of, and have the equipment for, the most modern, constantly updated analysis methods which satisfy the increasingly stringent criteria.

Origin

Dried Ingredients quality system checks the products at the source of origin. We have maintained long term relationships with our growers, who we personally visit on a regular basis during harvesting, in order to carefully control the overall process.
Whether handpicking, automated harvesting or technical processing - our goal is to maintain a sustainable, ecological and high quality production within our product range.

Our Certificates


We aim to offer only the purest ingredients for our products whenever possible, therefore we fulfil very clear standards for our products.
