As a family-owned company and leading manufacturer in ingredients, backaldrin understands its responsibility in doing business is key to long-term success. This means sustainability in all areas of work for the Austrian producer.
he baking ingredients manufacturer combines the tradition of the craft with breaking technology to innovate. It all starts with sourcing the raw materials it uses: since its launch in 1964, backaldrin has chosen to rely on local agriculture resources for everything that Austria produces in the quality and quantity it needs. Doing business locally supports not only agriculture but also the environment, minimizing transport routes needed: 92 % of the ingredients for the worldwide known Kornspitz® originate from Austria through regional partnerships, as well as more than 80 % of all cereal products. The company has its products and processes regularly checked and assessed by independent certification bodies. For example, backaldrin has been certified according to organic, RSPO, UTZ or AMA guidelines for years. “As a manufacturer of baking ingredients, we work with natural products on a daily basis, so it goes without saying that we take responsibility for the environment and nature,” says backaldrin owner Peter Augendopler.
