Sustainability as a basic philosophy: Reico Vital Systeme
People, animals and the environment are the focus of attention at Reico & Partner Vertriebs GmbH. Our aim is to bring mineral balance to soil, plants, animals and humans using the Reico Vital System and thus create the best possible state for life. The Reico basic philosophy is the natural cycle: healthy soil, healthy plants, healthy animals, healthy people.
This basic philosophy dictates our daily activities and is also the maxim for our product range, which includes dog and cat food, food supplements for humans and animals, and our line of personal care products, Alpenfesch®. It is particularly important to us that the raw materials we use are as far as possible natural and GMO-free.
When expanding our company headquarters in Oberostendorf, Bavaria, too, we incorporated a photovoltaic system into the plans that would cover our own electricity consumption, keeping the natural cycle front of mind. The air-source heat pump that we use to operate our heating is also run completely on its own electricity. And so we furnish our heat and energy requirements predominantly from renewable energies.
As a company involved in the the direct sale of consumer goods, we are able to record a particularly low returns rate, so unnecessary transport of our products can be avoided. For shipping, we rely on our own in-house-produced filling material: we use our own shredding machine to turn used cardboard into filling material quickly, easily and in an environmentally friendly way, for the safe shipping of our products. We prefer shipping with DHL. DHL uses exchange containers to transport the parcels. This saves us stretch film, which would otherwise have to be used to wrap the parcels for dispatch.
Sustainability is also important to us in our corporate management. We focus on family friendliness and an informal working atmosphere. And as far as possible in the individual departments, we also offer flexible working hours and flexitime.
