As a collection point and logistics centre for grain and associated products, we, the Lütolf Family, have been at the source for the procurement of sustainable and high-quality raw materials since 1963. It had long been our ambition to produce our own food products. We have now fulfilled this dream with our Ribel Maize Chips.
Award-winning Rheintal Ribel Maize AOP
The basis for our crunchy, authentic and unique chips is Rhine Valley Ribel Maize, which has been cultivated in its region of origin for 400 years. Since 2000, Ribel Maize is the only grain in Switzerland to have been awarded the AOP (Appellation d'Origine Protégée) quality label. A label that is awarded solely to products that are rooted in their region of origin, have a long tradition there and guarantee added value in their region of origin. Our Ribel Maize is subject to continuous further improvement and comes exclusively from the Rhine Valley, where it is cultivated specially for us on an area of over 90 hectares by selected farmers in accordance with the strict guidelines promulgated by the Rheintal Ribel Maize Association.
Domestic ingredients, fair prices and transparent food production are very important to us. We promote regional agriculture by generating added value in our immediate surroundings. By this means we guarantee excellent products of the highest quality for consumers.
