Sustainability is both a social challenge and a responsibility for Walter Rau Lebensmittelwerke. The economic perspectives of sustainable business require long-term resource protection and the continuous increase of energy efficiency in order to reduce the number of resources used in the production process. The principle of sustainability also entails the fair treatment of our employees, customers, suppliers, business partners and consumers, as well as the best possible protection of our environment.

Our approach to sustainable management is based on the ethical and environmental guidelines of our parent company BUNGE, as well as on our regionally rooted and medium-sized corporate culture of a former family-run business. The complex structures of the international process and supply chains of the food industry represent a major challenge for successful and sustainable corporate management. We see the implementation of a sustainable business model as an ongoing process of continuous improvement that we constantly want to drive forward.
