More than anything, the SunflowerFamily is labour of love. Our aim is to help in shaping the future of the organic sector and contribute to raising the bar to a new level. We believe that vegan food will be a key topic in the future for all of us – and with our products we want to use super nutritious and natural ingredients that are tasty and easy to use. That’s why we experiment in our open plan kitchen at home. And try out new recipes with family and friends. Why? Because we find love, socialising and innovating without loosing sight of our mission to promote sustainability. We want you to see our values in our products: and demonstrate that all of these values can be perfectly united in taste. Simply good food for a happy life!
We’d love you to also become a member of the SunflowerFamily!

Our idea of sustainability
Fair, regional, and organic!
Sustainability is not just an idea for us. It is a system that we actively work towards creating and improving. From our concept of using sunflower as an ingredient to the meaty plateful of plant-based on your table we think how can we create a more sustainable system. Sunflowers are energy efficient, needing less water to grow. We then use all the parts of the sunflower seeds in our production process. Our sunflower seeds are harvested exclusively in Europe, some of them even in Bavaria. The harvested organic sunflower seeds are processed in Germany. We press the seeds for Organic sunflower oil. Then we use the protein and fibre and nutrition to make the meaty sunflower mince. Even the husks of the seeds are used for bio thermal energy. We pack the sunflower mince in recycled paper using eco inks. And only use land transportation throughout Europe and the UK. Our relationship with our organic farmers are important to us. We work to ensure fair working conditions and promote regional production. Our sunflower seeds are harvested exclusively in Europe, some of them even in Bavaria. Our sunflower mince is packed in a workshop for disabled people in Kaufbeuren, which is part of the Wertachtal Workshops. We really appreciate working with them and are thankful for almost neighbourly cooperation.

GET TO KNOW US
Nicole is the creative mastermind of the SunflowerFamily. She thinks about which products can be developed from our sunflower mince and how best to get them to customers. She is also the creative thinker in the SunflowerFamily Kitchen.
Fabi has been working on how to get vegetable proteins in a natural and soy-free way for years. Of course, the sunflower again plays an important role, and he was the first to come up with the idea of using sunflowers (seeds) as a source of protein.
He asked himself which product he liked enough to dedicate himself fully to it and so he ended up with the SunflowerFamily, of which he is now a full family member as a partner.
