Ambitious Goals for a Better World

Sustainable action and corporate responsibility have always been very important at Dr. Oetker. The Dr. Oetker Sustainability Charter underlines this claim.

Our company's success depends directly on the quality of our products and processes. These, in turn, are significantly influenced by the selection of ingredients, the use of resources, the design of our supply chains and our ability to innovate. We would therefore like to harmonize our economic activities with ecological and social requirements – a concern that is firmly anchored in our corporate philosophy.


With this goal in mind, in 2019 and 2020 we revised the existing sustainability strategy, which is closely interlinked with the corporate strategy and our overarching purpose of Creating a Taste of Home. The result is the Dr. Oetker Sustainability Charter, with which we set ambitious, concrete goals and commit ourselves to sustainable action. This is the only way we can live up to our responsibility as a family-owned food-producing company. Dr. Oetker employees from various departments are currently working in international project teams to ensure that we achieve these goals. 


The challenges facing the company, be it on the part of consumers, trading partners, competition or politics and public discussion, are diverse and have an effect on the entire company. As a result, our Dr. Oetker Sustainability Charter is just as comprehensive: It applies internationally and for all Dr. Oetker brands.


We have assigned the goals to three dimensions: Our Food, Our World and Our Company.

For Us, Sustainability Means Acting Today for Tomorrow and Investing in the Future.
