Since 1919 Kräuter Mix from Germany has been standing for health and taste. We are experts for herbs, dried vegetables and spices. As one of the leading production and trading companies we supply nature - in food, medicines, and pet food. High-quality herbal raw materials are our passion and the basis of our business.
At Kräuter Mix our name is programme - not only in view of the family name of the owners, Christoph and Bernhard Mix, who are the third and fourth generation to lead the family business with 420 employees. 650 products - from anise through chives and coriander to onions - belong to the rich assortment. As is proven by the manifold aromas and fragrances in the spacious production halls and storehouses.
In 70 countries around the globe we buy raw materials and sell the finished products to customers all over the world. Many of the natural products produced by us, which are also available in organic quality, can be found in the herbal teas and fruit tea blends, spice creations and ready-made meals of renowned brands. Since demand is continually growing, our company, which has been certified repeatedly for its quality and sustainability, has grown steadily in the past years.
We convince numerous business partners around the globe with our experience, our knowledge and our expertise. 2,000 customers from industry and trade in the sectors of food, tea, pharmaceuticals, extracts, spirits and animal feed have made us what we are today. As one of the leading suppliers we supply herbs, dried vegetables and spices to 70 countries worldwide, thus generating about half of our turnover through exports. Among our long-standing customers are groups and companies like Unilever, Nestlé, Frutarom, Mondelez, Kotanyi, Van Hees, Twinings and Kneipp.
Customers find a comprehensive spectrum of air-dried herbal raw materials. We offer dried vegetables, dried mushrooms, culinary herbs, spices, superfoods, herbal raw materials, phytopharmaceutical active ingredients, medicinal herbs, as well as medicinal teas, herbal and fruit teas - as individual ingredients and as mixtures. We supply the 650 raw material groups, of which 150 in certified organic quality, in almost all processing and refined forms, for example cut in different sizes, ground, rubbed, chopped, as whole goods, in slices, strips and diced or as granulate. This results in more than 3,500 different articles in the established quality of Kräuter Mix.
In our spacious production halls the air-dried raw materials are cleaned, cut, ground, mixed, refined by specific methods and packaged. Our qualified permanent workforce with many years of production knowledge ensures that the goods - about 25,000 tonnes a year - are processed especially gently. High-performance, proven and innovative machines run around the clock in three-shift operation. Our guiding principle in doing so: Sustain the quality of natural products and increase their safety. The 30 lines are as varied as the products that are refined on them.
It is not always worth it to carry out all the processing steps in processing and storage of herbal products oneself. For this Kräuter Mix has manifold solutions as well. We offer production and trading companies the possibility to outsource processes and to use our modern high-performance production and storage capacities for their goods, combined with our decades of experience, to utilise these as services - irrespective of whether, for example, hot and cold grinding, GMP-certified processing or just-in-time delivery. Controlled and documented processes ensure a maximum degree of safety and reliability for our customers even when outsourcing.
Kräuter Mix places particular value on sustainability. Community involvement, social justice and ecological responsibility are not empty phrases for us. We make the topic come alive in all its facets - in manifold ways and in different projects, and have been doing so for many years. Our company can only develop successfully in harmony with our environment and the natural resources. Uncontaminated soils, clean air and clean water are essential prerequisites for producing our high-quality products of nature. To this purpose Kräuter Mix has an in-house team of experts who support our buyers. Their task lies in ensuring sustainable procurement structures and quality standards, qualifying suppliers and helping them in continuous further development - comprehensively.
Organic plays an increasingly important role for consumers. Kräuter Mix identified the trend at an early stage. Since 1985 we have been supplying controlled organic products to our customers, since 1992 as a certified producer. We furthermore are continuously working on making our products increasingly sustainable and with responsibility toward the environment. This is done on the basis of recognised standards for sustainable agricultural production.
With the EMAS certification of the EU, the most demanding system for sustainable and exemplary environmental management, we practice environmental protection that goes far beyond the statutory requirements, improve our environmental performance continuously and provide information annually in our environmental statement.
