This week we like to introduce one of our most important suppliers:
Sonnberg – Austria’s biggest organic butchery, Unterweißenbach im Mühlviertel, OÖ
Over 10 years ago the cooperation between the manager Manfred Huber and the butchery Wolfgang Fürst in Unterweißenbach began. Together, they found the company Sonnberg Biofleisch GmbH. At the same time they converted the manufacturing into 100% organic. Since 2010, the butchery is Austria’s largest 100% organic meat processor.
Sonnberg stands for honesty, gusto and Austrian origin. The basis is respectful, species-appropriate farming in rural organic farms and if possible a hassle-free transportation of the animals to the butchery, which is the requirement for the excellent taste of their organic meat and sausage products.
The butchery purchases its meat exclusively from organic, sustainable Austrian farmers. At the manufacturing stage, Sonnberg puts special emphasis on natural ingredients and foregoes flavour enhancers and artificial colourings. The spices used are 100% organic as well.
But not only are the products organic. The manufacturing takes place with a lot of environmental awareness. To keep the production eco-friendly and sustainable, Sonnberg uses biomass, photovoltaics and the latest ventilation and cooling technology.
If you want to get an impression of the butchery, you can visit Sonnberg’s Schaubetrieb “Bio-Wurst-Erlebnis” (“Organic-Sausage-Experience”). In the tour you can watch the staff preparing meat and sausages through a large window and ask all the questions about the production and the farmers. More information here.
We thank all the 60 employees for their great work and we are very happy about the amazing cooperation!
