Fruit Logistica 2015

lehmann natur GmbH presented new organic-premium segment

The company lehmann natur GmbH, one of the largest importers of organic fruit and vegetables in Europe presented their new organic premium segment for onions and garlic at the Fruit Logistica 2015 in Berlin. Their new premium segment includes seven different varieties of onions and two variations of garlic. The vegetables will be delivered by Dutch growers, who are working very closely with the German importer. The organically grown vegetables will be marketed in a unique and compostable packaging. Mignon Ortlepp Head of Marketing of lehmann natur GmbH describes: “The onion net is usually held together by a metal clip. In our concept we avoid this clip. This makes our product more sustainable and compostable.”

With permaculture to a sustainable growing
Sustainability is very important for lehmann nature. As a further development of organic agriculture, the company from Mönchengladbach is growing permaculture products on its own. “With this type of cultivation, we are on a way for a better agriculture. Permaculture is even more than “organic”. We completely forgo any kind of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and other ecological tools”, says Mignon Ortlepp. On a farm in Andalusia (Spain) - Founder and Managing Director Friedrich Lehmann is pursuing his goal of a sustainable cultivation. “In this method of cultivation many factors come together. For example, the plants are not growing as usual in straight rows. They are growing in wavy rows”, Mignon Ortlepp describes, “This arrangement intends to ensure that the wind is not sweeping too strong through the rows of plants. Further a lot of importance is attached to the layer of humus in the soil.” In addition, the company has set its own standards on which the company lives and works. “An important part of our philosophy is humanity,” says the head of marketing, “humanity during cultivation, distribution and sale. Each part of the value chain must be treated fairly.”

Organic - Everything from A to Z
The importer obtains its goods from trading partners all over the world. “Our product range includes everything: From A for Apple to Z for Zucchini“, says Mignon Ortlepp and refers that the demand for organic products in the population is steadily increasing. lehmann nature is supporting actively the growing of organic fruits and vegetables. The organic-importer from Mönchengladbach is also giving workshops for his own grower. The primary objective of lehmann nature is an organic agriculture and the conservation of the environment and the sustainable protection of nature with regard to future generations.
