Since its founding in 1998, BIO-FROST Westhof GmbH has been the only freezer shop in Germany exclusively selling vegetables from Germany processed organic farms. It is a recognized Bioland-, Demeter and Naturland-processor and produces according to EC-Öko-regulations 834/2007. Since 2006 it is certified according to the IFS. Since the production site is located in the middle of one of the largest European organic production areas, the vegetables can be processed and frozen immediately after harvesting. This guarantees a special freshness. During processing, no auxiliaries are used. The vegetables are first blanched at almost 100°C and then flash-frozen at -40°C. In order to ensure maximum transparency and field-specific traceability, the supplier provides detailed information upon delivery. The BIO-FROST Westhof GmbH now produces the goods in batches and can assign each individual to the farmer and the corresponding area.Rainer Carstens and Paul-Heinrich Dörscher are the founders of the WESTHOFBIO® Group. The two are united by a passion for sustainability - and the aspiration to keep organic thinking a little bit ahead. The Westhof, which has been family owned since 1972, was converted to organic farming in 1989. The growing area of the WESTHOF BIO® Group covers more than 1000 hectares and is located for the most part in the west of Dithmarschen directly on the North Sea coast. Nutritious soils and clean air characterize this region and offer the best conditions for growing vegetables.The focus of action is organic farming in harmony with nature and natural cycles. The preservation of an intact environment is just as important as the production of healthy, high-quality food. The Westhof not only wants to produce residue-free according to Bioland and Demeter guidelines, but also wants to be resource-efficient and climate-friendly. Organic farming is a sustainable and modern form of land management. It preserves and improves soil fertility and biodiversity, protects drinking water, land and climate, and conserves natural resources. Since 2015, the WESTHOF BIO® Group has been operating in an energy-neutral manner. So it generates as much energy as it consumes.
