In 1994 Elmar and Simone Schleker opened an organic and natural food store. Over the years a dedicated deli department was added, as well as a party service known for its extraordinary dishes. In December 2001 Elmar and Simone Schleker first brought their specially created masalas to the market: carefully composed spice blends as a Christmas present for their regular customers - organic, of course. The idea of „Biofix“ was born. In 2007, Beltane made a breakthrough in the organic market. It began with a range of ten „Biofix products“ which were hand-assembled by five employees. Today Beltane is a 100 % owned family company with 20 employees. The range comprises 28 products and stretches from seasonings to marinades to mixes for salad dressings.
