Founded in 1894, Bühler GmbH is a traditional family company run by the fifth generation today. “We have deliberately given ourselves the motto ‘unbeatable by nature’ and every consumer who has been able to enjoy meat from naturally grown animals knows what we’re talking about,” says Horst Bühler with conviction, who has been managing the company since 1999.
Meat from contract farmers
Quality already starts on the field for Bühler. As that’s the only way that the seamless traceability of products can be guaranteed. “We work exclusively together with contract farmers who we mutually agree fair prices with every year,” explains Horst Bühler. In return, the farmers undertake to comply with the quality criteria prescribed by Bühler. These are family-run farming businesses who farm with their heart and soul and work according to the guidelines of farming associations such as Bioland and Naturland.
Traceable back to the field
Compliance with the respective guidelines is monitored several times: in addition to the statutory checks, Bühler also carries out announced and unannounced checks itself. It’s not just the meat’s origin that is guaranteed by contract farming but also the origin of the feed making it 100 percent traceable. According to the guidelines from Bioland and Naturland, feed has to mainly be produced in-house on the farm. The buying in of feed is regulated in contracts with Bühler. Bühler stipulates to its contract farmers which feed mills they have to purchase from in order to ensure clear traceability.
Bühler also has fixed contracts with feed businesses. These regulate precisely from which supplier firms the grain must come from which the feed mixes are made from.
See where it comes from: on www.bio-mit-gesicht.de you can trace back the organic meat from right back to its origins.
Chicken: guaranteed to be free from antibiotics
With chicken Bio-Metzgerei Bühler is currently the only provider who guarantees that it is completely free from antibiotics. If treatment with antibiotics should be necessary for animal protection reasons, the animals are marketed conventionally. The farmers receive the price specified for organic chicken in the contracts nevertheless. This is ensured by a specially set-up fund.
Nationally well-known brands
Besides organic meat products, Bühler sells sausage and ham specialities, as well as pasta, sauces and convenience products: organic food that is available from retailers throughout Germany.
Many of these products are available under our own brand Bio Bühler.
