For several years, consumers have been involved in voting for the “Demeter-Product of the Year”. 16 producers of Biodynamic products had been nominated for election. The products were initially selected by a jury by considering various aspects of Biodynamic quality: Extraction of raw materials, processing, features such as Biodynamic varieties, animal welfare, social aspects, nutritional benefits and packaging. Afterwards, the consumers could vote for their five favourite products online. The Davert-SEKEM-date hazelnut confectionery was awarded the third place. Dr. Alexander Gerber, CEO of Demeter Germany, handed over the certificate to Angela Hofmann, expert in Biodynamic agriculture in SEKEM, during the Biofach, the leading fair for the Organic sector in Europe.
SEKEM is happy that the certificate awarded one of the products that are distributed in cooperation with Davert. Hence, the long-standing partnership between the German Organic company Davert and SEKEM received credit as well.
