Our Company

It all began just over 75 years ago when Karl and Margret Voelkel started to harvest and press fruit from their own orchard. The current CEO Stefan Voelkel, the founders` grandson, proudly looks back on his roots: “My grandparents started cultivating fruit from their own orchard with ´bio-dynamic farming´ methods and the idea of ´Demeter´ became the foundations of our company.” From the outset Voelkel has taken a holistic approach towards the business; running like a thread through the entire history of the company.

We must take responsibility for nature and man! That’s why the Voelkel team used the occasion of the organic juice producer’s 75th anniversary to chronicle the aspects that are vitally important to you and compile them into a declaration of our guiding principles. You can read those Guiding Principles here. What makes our natural juices so special and the reason why we only use high-quality ingredients from organic and biodynamic farms goes back to the origins and evolution of our family-owned business.
