Ingredients: 100 % Medjool dates with pit from controlled organic cultivation.
What is the difference between Medjool dates and other dates?
Medjool dates, known as “the fruit of kings” are the most popular date variety. At 6 cm they are bigger than other varieties, such as the Deglet Nour, and are also very soft and moist. Their unmistakable natural sweetness makes them a good alternative to industrially processed sugar.
What does controlled organic cultivation mean?
All our products come from organic farming. This means they are certified for their organic quality. The entire supply chain is regularly monitored and checked to the highest quality standards.
How do I dispose of the packaging?
We have used a compostable material for the Organic Medjool Dates packaging. It is a foil made from cellulose. The outer layer is made from Skandinavian forestry, the inner layer from sugar cane and potato starch.
The label is made of a paper-like material made from agricultural residues such as leaves and is also compostable.
Sadly, the organic waste regulations currently prohibit the disposal of compostable packaging with organic waste. We hope that garbage disposal management will continue to evolve in the future, as our foil should theoretically be disposed of with the organic waste. Under current regulations, it must go into the yellow (plastic packaging) bin, as the German waste management system currently deals with compostable packaging in the same way as plastic foil. We hope this will change soon.
Why is the packaging more environmentally friendly?
The packaging is based on organic materials, is plastic-free, and made from sustainable raw materials. That means the packaging was produced without fossil fuels, which is one of the main problems with traditional plastic packaging.
