Eosta is presently Europe's most innovative importer, packer and distributor of organically grown fresh produce. We serve major retailers and natural food stores in Europe, the USA, Canada and the Far East.
Mission & values
Eosta contributes to healthy food, a sustainable environment and social responsibility.
Convert complete Africa into Organic Agriculture is one of our missions. Were farmers are sustainable, independent and profitable within the entire chain.
In three words: Healthy, Organic, Fair.
Eosta shows and tells the story behind the product, providing visibility to the grower's efforts towards a fairer and more sustainable society, through our ‘trace & tell’ trademark; Nature & More. In this way, we empower the consumer to make a well-informed purchasing decision, at a price that is fair to the producer, society and the environment.
Our core values ??... responsible, together, authentic .. . are central to everything we do. They are the foundation for our HR policy as well as for our leadership vision. They shape our brand promise of 'Nature & More'. They are the guiding principles behind our main competences; deliver, dance and differentiate. And influence our interaction with suppliers, customers, consumers and employees. All in all, they embody what it is that makes us unique.
Take our ‘3D’ leadership competences as an example; Deliver, Dance and Differentiate. Achieving a responsible and sustainable result (Deliver) stems from co-creation and working together (Dance). Yet co-creation (1 + 1 = 3) can only take place if you're true to your values and behave authentically in everything you do, while acknowledging the other person's essential uniqueness (Differentiate).
We see ourselves as orchestrators of the production- and supply chain through the application of our organic and fair-trade expertise. We do this on behalf of a global group of growers, and in close cooperation with a broad range of customers. Our activities include:
• agronomic advice (e.g. through our subsidiary Soil & More)
• product innovation
We operate a partially-decentralized trade strategy. This means combining a distributed global network of logistic and commercial hubs with central management of product development, Nature & More’s innovation and added-value policy, trade flow, marketing, logistics, finance, controlling, administration, ICT and HR.
Nature & More
Nature & More was created by Eosta in response to consumer demand for healthy, organic and fairly traded food. Nature & More provides the marketplace with greater transparency related to the quality of organic products. There can be no sustainability without transparency!
Nature & More wants to communicate the commitment and effort that individual growers make towards the planet and its people, in order to empower consumers to make informed purchasing decisions. In addition to learning about the quality of certain products, retailers and consumers can easily access unique background information about the growers and their ecological and social commitment via the internet.
To evaluate and communicate the grower's sustainable efforts, Nature & More uses the integrated approach of the Sustainability Flower
The sustainability flower was developed in 2009 by an international group of prominent pioneers and innovators of the organic movement, operating under the umbrella of the "Belbis Desert Club". Among them are the founders and leaders of Eosta, Sekem, Alnatura, Lebensbaum, Rapunzel, Fibl, IFOAM, Soil & More, the Soil Association and others. They were looking to unite ecological and social values in a single elegant model. For each aspect of the flower, performance indicators were defined on the basis of the GRI Guidelines.
The Sustainability Flower serves as the main evaluation and communication tool in the Nature & More system
