About us - Ölmühle Solling
Quality over quantity – that is the motto at Ölmühle Solling. Since 1996, Gudrun and Werner Baensch have producing high quality oil from certified organic seeds and nuts in their small manufactory in Boffzen, near Holzminden, in the Weserbergland between Hannover and Göttingen.
From the beginning on, the Ölmühle Solling followed the guidelines of the NATURLAND association. In our manufactory, a lot of work is still done by hand. Starting with the selection of the raw materials, to the oil production with the help of small spindle presses, to the filtration and filling.
The Ölmühle Solling is under the technical management of the graduate engineers of food technology Werner Baensch and Lutz Meseck, both graduates of the University of Lemgo. The success of the company in the past few years is based on the cooperation in an interdisciplinary team of employees and specialists, who primarily orient themselves to the wishes of the customers. More and more demanding and health-conscious customers recognize the value of natural products for a healthy and balanced diet. In order to ensure the quality of our products at all times, we carry out a complex internal and external quality inspection and assurance by state-approved specialist laboratories.
In this way, we can ensure that all our raw materials such as organic nuts and seeds are free from residues of pesticides, metals or aflatoxins, polyaromatic hydrocarbs, plasticizers or other substances. Our product range includes domestic raw materials as well as exotic ones from Europe and overseas. Over the years, a wide range of exquisite oil specialties has been developed which can be used for a healthy diet or natural body care. Herbal remedies of earlier cultures such as certain vegetable oils are still appreciated today in the field of natural healing because of their particular effects on the organism. Please read more in the product descriptions.
Some years ago, we contributed to rural development in many developing countries, such as in South America and the Caribbean, South East Asia and the People’s Republic of China. We are still in close contact with the people working in these projects and some have become important trading partnerships. At the Ölmühle Solling, we support and work with family businesses and small businesses in the third world. We offer technology transfer and investment in their projects. A fair trading partnership for all involved parties is very important to us.
