    Responsibility

    Entrepreneurial responsibility has a long-standing tradition at Peter Kölln GmbH & Co. KGaA. Since its foundation in 1820, ensuring company’s long-term livelihood and passing on the business to the next generation is our first priority. This corporate policy has always been our understanding of economic success, responsibility to employees, business partners and society as well as careful handling of resources and is understood as one unit. This deep-rooted corporate structure establishes a good positioning of the company’s ability to cope with the future.

    Sustainability in terms of entrepreneurial responsibility is firmly anchored in our mission statement and integrated into our in-house project management system. Thus, we want to further systematize and drive our activities.

    Environmental protection is of high importance to our company as well.
    We consider it our continuing mission to further increase our activities to the saving of resources which we pursue with great dedication. So we are constantly working on minimising impacts that our business activities may have on the environment.

    Raw materials and relations

    Our products are characterised by good raw materials. Our demand for highest possible product quality is documented by procurement and use of selected raw materials and the strict monitoring of our qualified suppliers.
    We have taken a clear stance on ecologically sensitive raw materials:

    • Kölln has supported the work of the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) since 2011 through its membership. In 2013, we switched to more sustainable RSPO certified palm oil and developed the level continuously. Today all our products contain 100% "Segregated" palm oil. This RSPO certified sustainable palm oil from different certified sources is produced according to strict ecological and social criteria and kept separate from ordinary palm oil throughout the whole supply chain.
    • Since the end of 2012, we obtain raw materials for all of our Kölln mueslis and Kölln cereals containing chocolate from 100% UTZ Certified cocoa (standard: Mass Balance). www.utz.org 
    • Since 2014, our products are free from soya.
