Supporting Communities

We support a wide range of social initiatives.

We are dedicated to our communities.

We see ourselves as part of the communities in which we live. For this reason, we care deeply about our social commitment. We support several social initiatives and are particularly committed to children and families, as well as to the people living in the communities near our international sites.

Volunteering Days 2021 in Kärnten: A team of Dr. Oetker colleagues at the SOS-Kinderdorf in Kärnten, Austria, helps with cleanup work. The project took place as part of the commitment projects of the "Netzwerk Verantwortung zeigen!" network, an association of companies and organizations that take concrete action to promote responsible business and good social cooperation in Austria.

Help children finding homes

Since 2008, we have been engaged in a partnership with SOS Children’s Villages. Together, we focus on creating a sense of family and home, providing a wide range of activities to bring children joy. Today, SOS Children’s Villages are supported by 18 national Dr. Oetker companies around the world.

Provide help where it is needed most

We support people around the world affected by natural disasters with donations, products, or supplies.
