WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

ORGANIC VISIONARIES
For over 90 years Gewürzmühle Brecht has been one of the organic pioneers in Germany. We are convinced that unadulterated foods produced in harmony with nature are best for our health, environment and the future.

CREATIVE DIVERSITY
We compose more than 200 products from organic herbs and spices obtained from selected cultivation areas throughout the world: highly aromatic spice blends and spice preparations as well as gourmet salts, seasonal products and gift sets.

TRENDSETTERS
Apart from the spice classics that are an essential part of every cuisine and traditional healing herbs, we place our focus on developing innovative, exotic products that reflect current trends.

ORGANIC GUARANTORS
The superb organic quality of our herbs and spices has its roots in the principles of organic farming and consistent sustainability. Whether regional or worldwide – our growers run organic farms certified according to European standards.

WHAT MAKES US SO SPECIAL

TASTE EXPERIENCE
Over and over again, head-to-head comparisons show that Brecht compositions have a superior aroma and generally a more intense flavour. For optimum protection of taste and aroma with the Brecht brand, we rely on the unique Brecht amber glass.

UNCOMPROMISING QUALITY
We observe the highest production and taste criteria in selecting our organic spices. For 25 years Gewürzmühle Brecht has held organic certification according to the EU Standard (Control Body Number: DE-ÖKO-001). The EU organic logo also guarantees the product is free from genetically modified organism. As a producer, however, we set standards which go far beyond the requirements laid down by law. One example of this is our IFS Certification.

RESPECT FOR RESOURCES
Brecht places great value on protecting natural resources and the environment, e.g. by providing refill packs for our jars and mills.

TRADITIONAL CRAFTSMANSHIP
Brecht organic spices are extra fresh, because we grind them in small batches. For our blends we are using the same top-quality raw materials we use for our  mono products. Sensitive products are carefully sorted and filled by hand. These processes are 100 per cent conducted in Germany.

GATEKEEPER PRINCIPLE
We attach great importance to maximum food safety. For this reason, spices are not approved for our meticulous processing system until each single batch has been checked on arrival by an independent laboratory (e.g. for possible residues). Thanks to these stringent quality controls there has not been a single product recall in almost a century of company history. This makes us a reliable long-term partner for our global customers from the retail trade, industry and food service.
