Where we source our ingredients from
Here we’re listing some of our ingredients and explaining where we get them from.
Our dates come from the Sekem farm
The delicate date originally comes from sub-tropical Africa. Nowadays, it’s primarily encountered on a widespread scale in north Africa but also Australia, Texas, Mexico and southern Europe. The fruit is rich in carbohydrates, which mostly consist of easily digestible invert sugar of the type contained in honey.
The Sekem Group has been our Fairtrade partner from the beginning. The Sekem initiative has spent over 30 years encouraging organic cultivation of produce and ensuring that education, parenting and social advancement schemes have integrated approaches.
Our apples come from our own region
The apple originally comes from eastern Europe around the Black Sea. Over thousands of years, it’s spread all over the world. The apple quenches thirst naturally due to its high water content and acidity. The body quickly uses the fructose.
For its apple black currant bars from the local region, Lubs only uses apples from organic fruit producer Augustin from the Altes Land area, the traditional fruit-growing territory on the Lower Elbe between Stade and Hamburg. The company procures all its apples from the Augustin Group, which is committed to cultivating organic fruit that stands apart for its excellent quality and taste.
