Environmental protection and sustainability at Dr. Suwelack #2: Insect-friendly wildflower meadow

At Dr. Suwelack, environmental protection also means actively contributing to the preservation of biodiversity – preferably right on our doorstep.

That is why work will begin soon at the Dr. Suwelack property on the
construction of a 3000 square metre perennial wildflower meadow, which will provide honeybees, bumblebees, wild bees, butterflies and many other
insects with a broad food supply and habitat starting next year.

By creating this space, we are not only making an important contribution to biodiversity, but also to the quality of life in our immediate environment.

We will keep you up to date on the progress of the project and look forward to presenting photos of our hopefully lush and flowering meadow on our website next year – live from Billerbeck.

Environmental protection and sustainability at Dr. Suwelack #1: Promotion of electromobility

Our company supports the transition to electromobility among its employees and is setting a good example for this.

Conversion of the company fleet and charging stations on site
In the future, Dr. Suwelack will use climate-friendly plug-in hybrid vehicles as its corporate vehicles to reduce the company’s CO2 emissions. Special parking zones and charging stations have already been set up for this purpose.

Employees who come to work with their own electric or plug-in hybrid
vehicle can also use the charging stations.

Parking and charging Stations for e-bikes and pedelecs
We have created a special parking zone for e-bikes and pedelecs.
There is also a charging station where employees can recharge their batteries in securely lockable compartments.

The electricity for charging vehicles and bike batteries will be provided at no cost by Dr. Suwelack until further notice.

This allows us to offer our employees attractive incentives for switching to electromobility.

Dr. Suwelack Coffee now in aluminium-free packaging

The development of our coffee specialties in premium quality is coordinated with the desires from our customers as well as the latest and most dependable market trends.
And this concerns not only the coffee, but the packaging too.

The demand for aluminium free packaging is rising, especially for the health and environmental conscious consumer.

Therefore we now offer our freeze-dried coffee specialties on request in an aluminium-free packaging.

The foil for the coffee-pouch-packaging consists usually of three layers: One outside and inside layer of plastic and one barrier layer in the middle, which prevents the product from moisture. Conventional packaging use a barrier layer made out of aluminium. But our innovative, aluminium-free packaging use a barrier layer made out of a special plastic, which functions equally to an aluminium barrier layer.

Are you interested in an aluminium-free packaging or do you have questions regarding this topic? Please feel free to call +49 2543 72121 or send an email to
