We are RETTERGUT from Berlin. A colourful bunch of food rescuers with the common goal of making the waste of food a thing of the past. The idea behind RETTERGUT is as simple as the name: Save food and do something good for the environment. The amount of food thrown away every year is appalling. We know that a large part of what ends up in the bin can be avoided and we start where others sort out: we take what is usually no longer used and use it to create our products.
We know a lot about saving food: In 2014, the Dörrwerk started saving fruit and making crunchy snacks. Over time, we became increasingly aware that not only fruit but many other food groups are affected by acute waste. With RETTERGUT we therefore go one step further and process not only fruits but also saved vegetables and saved chocolate into tasty and high-quality products.
We believe in equal rights, even for food. For us, there is no such thing as too crooked, misshapen or gnarled. We give all food the chance to be transformed into a high-quality product; appreciation is very important to us. However, the waste of food is not only a question of appreciation, but a major problem for our environment. We do our best to give something back to our planet. Whether it is fruit, vegetables or chocolate; we start where food is wasted. Because one thing is certain: we will not be able to afford this waste of resources for long.
Everyone is in demand
With our products we strive for a better and sustainable environment. We are convinced that our goal can be achieved – if we all pull together. From the field to the consumer, food is wasted at every step of the value chain: 61 % from the producer to the bulk consumer; 39 % at the final consumer. Each and every one of us can therefore help to put an end to this waste.
