Nachhaltig von Anfang an

Growing up with
nature’s best

Holle has been a pioneer of biodynamic baby products since 1934 and offers baby food of the highest organic quality. As the first Demeter manufacturer of baby and infant food, we embrace a holistic approach and assume responsibility for people, nature and future generations. We are firmly committed to the philosophy of ‘Sustainable from the beginning’ and try to improve every single day in order to ensure that our little ones grow up healthily today and can look forward to a positive future tomorrow.

Pioneering spirit meets Swiss origins

The history of Holle began over 85 years ago in the Swiss town of Arlesheim. Founded in 1933, Holle Nährmittel AG was the first biodynamic processor of bread, cereals, grains and baby porridges in Switzerland. Since then, we have established ourselves as a long-standing expert in biodynamic baby and infant nutrition.

From the very outset, we have believed that only by taking a holistic approach can we live up to our corporate responsibility towards people, nature and future generations. This is why sustainable company management is and always will be our top priority.


‘As a traditional Swiss company and pioneering processor of biodynamic foods, the highest quality and sustainable management lie at our very core.’

Wir sind heute ein international tätiges Unternehmen in mehr als 50 Ländern vertreten und bieten ein vollumfassendes Produktsortiment von über 90 Produkten für Babys und Kleinkinder. Gleichzeitig haben wir unsere Wurzeln nicht vergessen – sind unserem Schweizer Ursprung treu geblieben und weiterhin in Familienhand. Unser Hauptstandort befindet sich nach wie vor in Riehen in der Schweiz. Tradition begreifen wird nicht als festgerostete Bremse, sondern als Anker auf dem stetigen Weg der Veränderung in Richtung Zukunft.

Diese Zukunft soll eine enkeltaugliche sein, dafür setzen wir uns entschieden ein. „Nachhaltig von Anfang an“ lautet unser Leitsatz, den wir im doppelten Sinne leben: Wir setzen seit jeher auf wertvolle Rohstoffe aus biodynamischer oder biologischer Erzeugung, damit unsere Kleinen heute gesund aufwachsen können und gross werden mit dem Besten aus der Natur.
