As Denkavit we are responsible for the impact we generate with the raw materials we use in our products. We know the origin of our raw materials and are determined to reduce the social and environmental risks of these commodities. 


We are committed to adding value to products and raw materials that are a residual flow from other production chains. These are often co-products (by-products) from the food sector. In this respect, circularity is also an important principle for our packaging activities and other materials we use.
