About us - Ölmühle Solling
Ölmühle Solling is a family-run manufactory in the heart of the Solling area in Lower Saxony, Germany. In 1996, we started producing organic edible oils in a traditional way. Today, we are proud of our large variety of organic oils and food specialities. From the very beginning of our manufactory, we chose raw materials from certified organic cultivation because we care about the quality of our products and the satisfaction of our customers. The founding family, Werner, Gudrun, Sebastian and Sarah Baensch, maintains personal contact with suppliers and farmers from the region and around the world. As Naturland Fair Partner, the company supported organic farming right from the start and actively promotes fair trade.
Commitment to organic food products
Ölmühle Solling uses organic raw materials without exception. The high efforts in the production process would not pay off if the raw materials and ingredients were polluted with artificial fertilisers, treated with pesticides or were genetically engineered. Therefore, we use high-quality raw materials from organic farming only.
Fresh from the mill
At Ölmühle Solling, we practice the traditional craftmanship of oil milling. All oils are gently pressed with small spindle presses. The bottling, labelling and shipping involve a lot of manual work. Not only the ingredients are as fresh as possible. We also make sure that the oil reaches the customer quickly and in its best condition. After all, the cold-pressed organic oils from Ölmühle Solling are not "industrial goods" that can be stored for years. Therefore, we only produce small batches which are bottled and shipped immediately – fresh from the mill. The oils are characterized by their diverse, balanced aroma and taste. We make sure that the valuable ingredients such as polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamins or phytochemicals are optimally preserved. This way, our oils can make a valuable contribution to a healthy diet.
All of our oils are cold-pressed from high-quality, organic raw materials. The mechanical pressing method is very gentle because the temperatures remain rather low. After the pressing, we carefully filter the oils. Of course, we do not use chemical or aggressive processes such as deacidification, bleaching or deodorising.
To ensure our high-quality standard, the production and development departments are managed by graduate food technologists. We monitor the entire production process from the incoming goods inspection to the retain sample in extensive quality assurance processes. In addition, external test laboratories and inspection bodies check and confirm the quality of our products on a regular basis.
Regional and global
Be it hemp seeds from Germany or coconuts from Sri Lanka: At Ölmühle Solling, we attach great importance to a long-term relationship with our suppliers, based on mutual respect. Therefore, we prefer fair cooperation and close personal contact with producers and small farmers’ associations. This way, we support family run and small businesses in our region and abroad.
