We believe that progress can only be achieved through continuous thirst for knowledge, ceaseless willingness to learn and the courage to break new ground. This principle is firmly anchored in our philosophy. Every day we try to align our actions with this principle. Every day we strive to get to the bottom of things. In cooperation with internationally recognized scientists and universities, we aim to think outside the box and to develop innovative solutions.
Quality products – Made in Germany
Due to extraordinary design and machine technology, our production line in Neuendettelsau, Franconia, Germany, gives us maximum flexibility and makes fast product adaptations possible. 80% of our turnover is generated from products of our own manufacturing plant.
All products are manufactured following strict quality management systems that incorporate the latest technology and exceed international standards. We believe that there is no substitute for quality. Therefore, we monitor every single production step in our facilities.
To meet the demands of local markets, we run additional production facilities in various countries. In our facilities in Londrina, Brazil and in Jintan, China, we customize our products to the needs of our local customers. Of course, with the same care and attention to the highest quality standards.
100% quality - certified!
We monitor each step of the production chain through our internal quality management guaranteeing consistent quality: from seed to feed! Our products are science-driven and proven in practice. Our portfolio meets the highest standards and includes products for organic farming.
Our approach to sustainability
At Phytobiotics, sustainability has been our priority since our foundation over 20 years ago. It is at the center of our efforts to align our business activities with the interests of the environment, our employees, and our customers. In doing so, we consider the dimensions of economy, sociology, and ecology as equally important parameters. The concept of sustainability is not an empty phrase for us - it is firmly anchored in our guidelines.
"Our overall goal is to make food safer, agriculture more sustainable, and, first and foremost, the businesses of our customers around the world more successful."
Triple bottom line
The concept of sustainability is often associated primarily with environmental issues, such as climate change or species protection. Our Phytobiotics family is guided by the triple bottom line approach. This model summarizes the idea of sustainability more generally and bases the idea of sustainability on ecology, economy, and sociology. Through this approach, we align ourselves with the requirements of CSR reporting.
In the area of ecological sustainability, at Phytobiotics we make an active contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gases with our product portfolio. In the field of biogas plants, our product, which is used worldwide, contributes to reducing the need for raw materials to produce biogas by approx. 10%. Thus, with a plant capacity of 500 kW/h, approx. 470 tons of CO2 equivalent can be saved per year.
With our own 300 kW solar power system and by purchasing <br>3 MW of solar energy from the agricultural environment, we cover almost 70% of the energy demand in our own production site. Thus, we reduce the demand for electricity, which is mainly generated from fossil, finite fuels, and contribute to the protection of natural resources. In addition, in our state-of-the-art production facilities, we are able to cover over 50% of the demand for thermal energy through modern heat exchangers.
Economically sustainable production also involves stategic, long-term planning for our company. By investing over 7% of sales revenue in innovative ideas, we are constantly evolving and looking ahead to successfully align Phytobiotics for the long term.
Equal to the economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability, we consider Phytobiotics to have a social responsibility. To fulfill this responsibility, we are part of local, and also larger social projects. In 2018, we founded our charity organization PhytoShare.
