Küsten Gemüse. The very best of the northern Germany.

Our products

Küsten Gemüse. Original from Dithmarschen.

Cultivating vegetables has a more than 100 years' tradition in Dithmarschen. The original Kuestengemuese vegetables are cultivated only here, in the largest continuous cole crops cultivation area in Europe. For the good, fertile marshes as well as the fresh maritime climate keeping away pests provide optimal conditions for crisp, healthy vegetables.

Trust creates quality.

Our vegetables are produced by selected farmers only - exclusively, and with many of them we have been collaborating since many years. We support them when planning cultivation, controlling growth and quality, harvesting and processing - up to marketing the products. For our retail partners, that has many advantages - as, for instance, maintaining consistent high quality and sufficient delivery capacities.

Our goals and successes.

As part of the Gemüsering Group, we support the central declaration of principles on respect for human rights as well as the central sustainability goals of Gemüsering Stuttgart. To emphasise this commitment, our company was included in the certification of Gemüsering Stuttgart in 2022 in accordance with the ZNU Standard for Sustainable Business Practices.

ZNU certification

We are aware of our responsibility to respect human rights within our own company and along the supply chain. Respect for environmental and human rights in our global value and supply chains has therefore been an integral part of our corporate policy and part of our supplier declaration for many years. Our aim is to continue to promote the observance and application of environmental and human rights and to prevent their violation.
