Seeding a better world: Making nutrition inclusive and sustainable


"I believe we have a moral duty to protect the environment for future generations – our children and grandchildren."

Ulrich Ladurner, President of Dr. Schär


As a family business thinking in generations and with its home in the heart of the Alps, we are committed to protecting the world we live in. Our consumers trust in the high quality of our products, which are made and sourced from the best possible raw materials and delivered in the best possible packaging.

We accompany our products from field to fork, knowing that the quality and taste of our food results from the effort and care we put in throughout their lifecycle. The environment also has a direct impact on product quality, as our ingredients can only be as good as the habitat in which they grow. What’s good for nature is also good for our food.

That is why we strive to protect the world around us. We are committed to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aim to contribute to a better and more sustainable future for all by 2030. The future we envision is about growing together – for the benefit of our people, our community and our planet.

Our sustainability strategy: Growing together

On our path to sustainability, we are guided by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The following four pillars help us achieve our goals: promoting biodiversity and sustainable farming, reducing the impact of our packaging, reducing our CO2 footprint and last but not least, encouraging inclusion, which is at our core in connection with the nutrition topic.

Our Commitment to People, Products and the Planet

Our world is constantly changing at a rapid pace. This makes it even more important for us to clearly define who we are and what we stand for. Our self-imposed Commitment sets out our goals and values as a company. It is our promise to the community, the planet and our people, and something all employees at Dr. Schär commit to. Together, we strive for a more sustainable world, in which social responsibility, environmental and climate protection go hand in hand with the development of our company.




Our company has an Integrated Management System (IMS) where the requirements of different norms and standards have been unified in one system. By using synergies and bundling resources, a leaner, more efficient Integrated Management System is possible.
