Sustainability has been a central part of our company philosophy for many years and serves as the benchmark for all our thinking and actions. This means that we have a significant responsibility towards our environment and society. Therefore, we strive to produce our products in the most resource-efficient and environmentally friendly way possible. Additionally, we commit to operating our facilities in a manner that avoids environmental impact and hazards to people and the environment.

Why Aluminium?


The aluminium can is much better than its reputation. In fact, aluminium is a highly sustainable packaging material due to its high recyclability. Over 75% of all aluminium ever produced is still in circulation today. In less than 60 days, the can goes from return to the shelf (or webshop) through the recycling process. Aluminium recycling is a resource-efficient and straightforward process that requires 95% less energy compared to primary metal production. One factor for this is that aluminium has a low melting point, resulting in lower energy consumption.

By using aluminium cans for our products, we thus contribute to the circular economy and provide our customers with a robust and lightweight packaging solution.

For the environment and health: Glass as packaging.



We have always relied on glass as packaging for our beverages. For good reason: glass is recyclable, hygienic, impermeable to air, and guarantees a  pure and unadulterated taste. Equally important, compared to conventional PET packaging, glass is harmless to health – no plastic molecules can migrate into the beverage.

Our Seals and Certificates

Simply obvious: Regional quality



The Münsterland Seal underlines our close ties to our home region. It represents the verified origin of our products. This benefits the region and is both environmentally friendly and consumer-friendly. The best from Münsterland – with inherent values that our customers can trust 100%.

ÖKOPROFIT® Company District of Coesfeld 2023




We participated in the ÖKOPROFIT® project last year and were awarded the title of ÖKOPROFIT® Company District of Coesfeld 2023 for out commitment and efforts during the project year. Throughout the project, we received individual guidance from experts and attended workshops on sustainable business practices. Together, we developed various measures to reduce the consumption of resources and cut operating costs.

Some of the measures included implementing an environmental management system, transitioning to more sustainable lighting solutions, and installing a new air compressor. In the upcoming year, we also plan to expand our use of alternative energy sources and install our own photovoltaic system.




Products labeled with the Fairtrade Certified Ingredients seal are cultivated and traded according to the international standards set by Fairtrade International. Münsterland offers products with Fairtrade-certified cocoa and/or coffee. The Fairtrade cocoa can be mixed with non-certified cocoa through mass balance. The Fairtrade coffee is always physically traceable.


The Fairtrade standards encompass various aspects, including:
