Goodbye 2022 - hello Veganuary!
An eventful year filled with ups and downs is now saying goodbye to us.
We wish you a happy new year! Full of joy we start into the new year with the Veganuary, so the vegan January.
Great recipes, products and information for a vegan lifestyle are waiting for you in the next 4 weeks.
Our goal is to bring you closer to the topic of vegan nutrition and to clarify any open questions. Motto: just try it out!
Either you are completely convinced afterwards or cook surely regularly vegan dishes. In the Veganuary not only the plant-based life-style is celebrated,
it is purposefully improved the nature consciousness and naturally also enjoyed! Because the vegetable food is not only a feast for the eyes,
but decorates itself with in a particularly good conscience, since we dine completely in absence of living beings on the plate. A nourishing way,
which is more lightly aliment for body and spirit and that is exactly why the movement trends that way.
Choices can be made in a variety of (new) ways, influencing the well-being of others.
The plant-based diet, which has now established itself under the term "vegan," does not require food of animal origin and offers a variety, which we as a natural foods company are not only happy to represent, but also want to promote with our focus on our future generations. Stay tuned on Instagram and treat yourself to all sorts of plant-based delights!
Trainees are gifting the Bode Naturkost family!
Once again this year, our trainee team has been busy in our gift workshop, acting as Christmas elves to ensure that each of our about 150 employees is in a festive mood!
Our team has put together specially selected delicacies, for which our diverse range of products provides the basis for festive treats. The heart-warming tea, the winter magic
spice mix and the chocolate dream cup cake were created in the process, naturally packaged in reusable tins and jars.
Because our project team is always focusing on sustainability.
Many thanks to the hard-working apprentice team, it was a great pleasure for all of us!
IFS FOOD PASSED!
We have passed the IFS Food audit! The IFS Food Standard for food manufacturers certifies food safety and food quality of its processes and the products.
For two and a half days we were put through our paces. The entire Bode team worked in concert, so that we collectively met all the necessary requirements.
We are very proud of the achievement and look forward to gaining the certificate!
Our quality assurance has mastered the largest part of it and celebrated the success right away.
Special thanks to the entire Bode Naturkost team for making this possible!
Compost worms love our plastic-free foil
On Wurmkiste.at we recently reported about our experiences with the compost box for your home!
A composter in the house? That made us curious and we ordered a worm box for the Marketing & Product Development office. With scientific curiosity we tested, how well our new plastic-free and copostable packaging breaks down and what the process looks in the end. Everyone is welcome in our Bode family and we especially welcome those hard-working little helpers in our team! You can find more about this here.

Visit to Turkey:
Organic Sultana Harvest 2022
Supervision from the vine to the sun-dried raisin: Our purchasing department has just visited suppliers in Turkey and convinced themselves of the quality of the freshly harvested organic raisins. Sultanas are a specific type of raisin, which are produced from the light grape variety Sultana by drying. Many family wineries grow the organic grapes and deliver them to the central drying facility, where they are laid out and dried in the sun within a few days. Now the popular raisins will soon be making their way to Hamburg in a container. From October, the sweet classics of the new harvest will be available fresh from our stock. Here to our sun dried organic raisins and in Demeter quality raisins.
Steel beams for our new production area!
Bode is growing steadily - the first steel girders are being placed in Hall 11 by our technical team, so that in future even more products will be dressed there in a touch of Bode red, both in quantity and variety.
Big projects require clever minds and, of course, plenty of nerve food: For Hall 11, that means 75 cubic meters of excavation for the foundations, into which 75 cubic meters of concrete were pumped, the equivalent of 1500 wheelbarrows. Our well-coordinated Bode team of energetic craftsmen is a fundamental necessity for this, so that progress towards a future not just greener but also more productive can be chiseled in stone. There, premises are being built so that everything can take place in a single hall without process-impeding detours. Full of anticipation, we look forward to a bright future with even more diversity, because the sky's the limit for us beyond the height of the ceiling of our Hall 11!
Separate recyclables properly!
Busy trainee-bees buzz across our premises and train the entire Bode tribe!
In the pursuit of our evergreen sustainability project, our busy apprentice project team has developed a training course on recyclables education. Because not every rubbish is just rubbish! Especially not for us, as waste has a strong impact on our climate, nature and our lives. We have left behind the definitions of "waste" and "rubbish", because they are valuable resources. Following our green heart, we only want to use the term "recyclable material" and thus recognise the benefits. Recycling is an important issue for us, as well as resource conservation. We were given a very demonstrative explanation of how we should separate our recyclables at work and at home. A very complex topic, which is also handled individually depending on the location, and a chance for us to make a difference and raise awareness for a greener future! (Picture: Our trainees and on the left the pictograms that were created in the seminar process by the team)
...and yet: The best rubbish is, of course, no rubbish at all!
Summer festival at Bode
On Saturday, our team came together to celebrate summer, life and of course togetherness!
Our festival committee lovingly organised a great programme with a bouncy castle and ball pool, table football event, wheel of fortune and a super delicious summer barbecue buffet.
Real summer magic in the sunshine! Not only the Bode family was part of the party, but also the families and partners of our energetic colleagues.
It was colourful and cheerful on our premises!
We took the opportunity to get to know each other better, welcome new Bode family members and reward ourselves for a very busy time.
Trainee bed celebrates first anniversary
Last year, our dedicated trainee project team sway their green thumbs vigorously in our garden! The greenery and flowers have brought us much joy in the past year and also provided a refuge and food for many kinds of animals. Therefore, for us this was a mission which we completed with full success. This year, of course, our flowerbed was again cared for and our hardworking trainees scattered a bee-friendly seeding for the new flora. In addition, a lovingly self-designed sign was attached for which we used our old pallet wood - true to the motto "Stay green!"

New: Plastic-free assortment
WE SAY NO TO PLASTIC! With our new plastic-free packaging we encourage everyone to join the peaceful revolution against plastic and are now using the new garden compostable packaging! The repaq packaging is certified by the TÜV as "home and garden compostable", which is currently the highest environmental standard. It composts back to water and CO2 in 180 days, which are returned to the cycle. No microplastic is produced! We have converted part of our assortment and are very excited to see how the new packaging is going to be accepted by you. Step by step back into a closed natural cycle: Therefore it is our goal to offer all articles in the repaq-foil. The first packaging is now available, and some products are being held in the hands of Marketing Manager Kirstin Umland and Authorized Signatory / Division Manager Sales & Purchasing Mirko Grosch. Many thanks to all who are taking a step into the future together with us. You can find more information here. To our new assortment.
Start the year with new crop
The year has started and has already picked up speed. The new harvests from 2022 have sailed here: Organic hazelnuts, figs and apricots and more straight from the sunny origin are ready. The products are immediately available in bulk and consumer packages - we look forward to supplying you with these high-quality organic products again this year.
Dear customers, as the year is coming to an end, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a successful business year and for the good and trusting cooperation despite all the difficulties! We wish you a merry and enjoyable Christmas season. May you also enjoy much joy, happiness, health and success in the new year.

Curious? You can watch the foodactive video here.
City cycling: CO² saved together
Our team cycled a total of 2221 km from September 1 to 21, 2021!
A big thank you to all our colleagues who took part and made a contribution to climate protection.
By using the bike instead of the car, we saved around 2500 kg of CO2. Keep pedaling so hard!
Sustainability: Trainees create insect bed
As part of our trainee project, we planted an insect bed on our company premises. As you known, insects such as bees, bumblebees and many others make an important contribution to nature, as their work keeps our ecosystem stable.
Our insect bed is in a sunny place, so that the plants can shine in the next years with their beautiful flowers. We have chosen a seed mixture that produces flowers for the endangered wild bees and bumblebees. In addition, we sowed plants that provide shelter for native butterflies.
Since we are very concerned about sustainability, this project is especially close to our hearts! To show you the difference, we've created a little photo collage for you. We are excited to see how our insect bed will develop and in which splendor it will show itself next year.
Trainee Power at Bode
We offer apprenticeships in seven different trades. Our trainee project team regularly works together on complex topics. They have just developed the new product "Bruchkernmischung bio" from the idea to market maturity. Arne Butkereit is in his second year of training as an e-commerce merchant: "I particularly like the contact with the other trainees and the insight into the different areas of work." Svenja Stang, assistant to the management, supervises the team: "Here, for example, the trainees train independent work, team skills, organization and creativity." And what's the next project? Kirstin Umland from Marketing: "Sustainability is an important topic at Bode. We're planting a large insect bed and creating a nice place for employees to take a break in the green." We will report!
