Our self-image

Philosophy

As a sus­tain­able pro­ducer, our goal ever since 1957 has been to give peo­ple back a taste of na­ture with every sip of Biotta juice they take. Our main fo­cus in do­ing so has been on or­ganic prod­ucts, high qual­ity stan­dards and great taste. We love the healthy, nat­ural vi­tal­ity that is to be found in each sin­gle bot­tle of Biotta juice. That’s why we take a holis­tic and fair ap­proach, from the grow­ing stage to the bot­tling stage. By co­op­er­at­ing closely with lo­cal or­ganic farm­ers, for ex­am­ple, we sup­port sus­tain­able or­ganic agri­cul­ture in our home coun­try. And fur­ther afield, our part­ners also sup­port or­ganic farm­ers in pro­duc­ing or­ganic fruits and veg­eta­bles.

Doing people good

Our juices are packed with the best that fruit and veg­eta­bles can of­fer. For ex­am­ple, we’ve thought long and hard about how best to com­bine the nat­ural tal­ents of our fruits, tu­bers and roots, and how to cre­ate nu­tri­tious juice mixes and an en­tire well­ness pack­age for juice weeks. It might sound a lit­tle old-fash­ioned these days, but nonethe­less: we take the health and vi­tal­ity of our cus­tomers to heart. With every bot­tle of Biotta juice, we are send­ing a lit­tle por­tion of tasty na­ture into the world - and per­haps a smat­ter­ing of joie de vivre, too.

Our Farmers

The or­ganic farm­ers, who work for us, all have decades of ex­pe­ri­ence in grow­ing veg­eta­bles or­gan­i­cally. They are also ded­i­cated to the cause, and have an eye for de­tail. On their lov­ingly tended, fer­tile land, they grow the car­rots, beet­root, pota­toes or cel­ery which give the fa­mous Biotta juices their un­ri­valled aroma and ar­che­typal flavour.

Most of the or­ganic veg­eta­bles used in our juices are sourced from the re­gion around the Biotta fac­tory, on the south shore of Lake Con­stance - a re­gion which en­joys a per­fect cli­mate for the pur­pose. In other words: short, di­rect routes from the field to the bot­tle. Per­fect tim­ing is of the essence here. Gen­er­ally speak­ing, sea­sonal pro­duce has to be processed fresh, within a few hours of be­ing har­vested.

We be­lieve in of­fer­ing our or­ganic farm­ers fair part­ner­ships. We are com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing or­ganic farm­ing in Switzer­land, and en­joy re­la­tion­ships of trust with our part­ners, who have cul­ti­va­tion con­tracts with us, and whom we know per­son­ally. We cul­ti­vate long-term re­la­tion­ships with our farm­ers. And of course we make sure we pay a fair price for the valu­able nat­ural pro­duce we re­ceive. For us, fair trade be­gins at home - right in front of our fac­tory gates in Täger­wilen (Thur­gau).

Ecological Sustainability


Back in 2013, Biotta grap­pled with the ques­tion of what type of en­ergy gen­er­a­tion the com­pany should aim for in the fu­ture. Switch­ing to a sus­tain­able en­ergy source was the log­i­cal step, since our cor­po­rate phi­los­o­phy is founded on re­spect for peo­ple and the nat­ural en­vi­ron­ment. This de­sire to be more sus­tain­able lead us to de­velop a com­pre­hen­sive plan which re­sulted in the open­ing of the Biotta wood­chip heat­ing sys­tem in late au­tumn 2019. To­gether with our part­ner Rathgeb Bio, which will also meet its fu­ture en­ergy needs from the wood­chip heat­ing sys­tem, Biotta now re­lies on wood as a do­mes­tic en­ergy source, sav­ing 2500 t of CO2 per year. This cor­re­sponds to 340 cir­cum­nav­i­ga­tions of the world by plane (one per­son in econ­omy class).



For more than 60 years we have been com­mit­ted to or­ganic farm­ing with­out the use of pes­ti­cides and her­bi­cides. Bees, too, make an in­valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to pre­serv­ing bio­di­ver­sity by pol­li­nat­ing plants. Honey bees and wild bees are ir­re­place­able for the ecosys­tem, for na­ture and for hu­mans. Bees pol­li­nate around 80% of our crops and wild plants. So they are an ex­cel­lent ex­am­ple when it comes to pro­mot­ing greater aware­ness for na­ture con­ser­va­tion, bio­di­ver­sity and semi-nat­ural habi­tats. From four to six bee colonies spend each sum­mer at the Biotta Bee Ho­tel. Right next to our juice plant.
