Our vision and mission
As your partner in catering and a family company, we believe we bear particular responsibility for our fellow humans and the natural world. That’s why we are committed to doing our part to protect the climate while offering our customers the very best in local dining enjoyment. We view the challenges facing us as opportunities and draw on them as a source of creativity and innovation.
Sustainability made by Dussmann
Maintaining a livable climate and local dining enjoyment come first in everything we do. As a family company and your partner in catering, we believe we bear particular responsibility for our fellow humans and the natural world. Beyond that, we view the challenges facing us as opportunities and draw on them as a source of creativity and innovation. This is our vision as we embark on plans for future stability and establish the topics of sustainability and enjoyment as the standards in catering. Every word of our catering vision is based on action fields that help us aim for the right goals. To develop these fields, we surveyed employees, external partners, and diners and considered the changing overall societal context.
Our formula at a glance:
From the warehouse to production and beyond to what is left over on people’s plates, we identify avoidable food waste throughout the process and use this information to craft a plan of action and recommendations tailored specifically to you. This reduces waste and, above all, cuts costs.
Overview of our measures:
- Energy produced using oils, grease, and food waste
- Exclusive use of recyclable garbage bags
- Reusable packaging and large packages instead of single-use packaging
Catering by Dussmann: local and seasonal
We believe only the very best items should wind up on your plate. That’s why we are extremely stringent when it comes to the quality of our foods. We use only iodized salt, use sugar as sparingly as possible, and use exclusively canola or olive oil. We also use no preservatives, hydrogenated fats, or flavor enhancers.
We are also careful to ensure high nutrient density in all our foods. That means a wealth of vitamins, minerals and protein, but not much fat.
Local and seasonal – the right combination for your menu
Local options are standard in all our menus.
Overview of our options:
- Fruit, vegetables, dairy products, meat, and cold cuts primarily sourced locally
- 10–15% of all products we purchase are organic
- Local eggs from free range chickens
- Coffee, tea, and chocolate products primarily fair trade
- Upon request, 100% certified organic foods used
