Global Sourcing

With global sourcing, we secure

the best nature has to offer for your products.

Nature is our most important supplier – and also our least predictable.

That is why we do all we can to secure our direct access to the best natural raw materials for the long term. Together with our global fruit and vegetable partners, we set great store by vertical integration with consistent quality standards and our own processing facilities on site, all over the world. This guarantees you the best natural ingredients and optimum planning reliability.

Consistently excellent quality through vertical integration.

The best growing areas

Be it fruit, vegetables, cereals or plants – our raw materials come from wherever the best quality grows. We have always relied on a range of different supply sources in growing regions around the world. This allows us both to guarantee the very highest reliability of delivery and to compensate for fluctuations in harvests and prices.

Carefully-selected seeds

If we want to harvest the very best of nature, we need to start with the seed. That is why Döhler works together with both seed companies and universities in the selection of seeds for certain fruit and vegetable varieties, for example. We have also established our own seed research programme.

Exclusive and sustainable contract cultivation

In the growing countries, we support farmers locally in implementing sustainable cultivation methods, such as using environmentally-friendly irrigation systems and fertilisation methods.

Our own local processing facilities

We at Döhler use gentle processing in our own local facilities in order to capture the full flavour, most beautiful colours and full power of nature for your products. Using a wide range of state-of-the-art technologies, we transform freshly-harvested raw materials into the best natural ingredients.

Worldwide quality standards

Döhler sets the same high quality standards for cultivation and processing all over the world. An identical raw materials base at all production sites gives us a much wider range of options for reacting to nature’s unpredictability. This allows us to supply you reliably with the ingredients you want, in the quality you need.
