German organic supermarket chain Alnatura has been nominated for the ‘Germany’s Most Sustainable Company’ award, for the fourth time.

"The guiding principle of Alnatura, to treat both mankind and the planet sensibly reflects our daily efforts towards greater sustainability. We are therefore very pleased to have been nominated again for the German Sustainability Award and we thank our employees, partners, organic farmers - and especially our customers, who enable us to apply our principles," said Götz Rehn, founder and managing director of Alnatura, commenting on the nomination.
