Background

There has been much recent criticism of beverages such as fruit juices, lemonades and fizzy drinks, in particular because of their excessive sugar content. Our health can be seriously affected if we overindulge. Consumers are therefore increasingly keen to find alternative, “free from” products. In the beverage sector, this has led to a growth in “healthier” products containing less sugar or additives than the many different soft drinks that to date have been available.


Our commitment   

Far from wishing to moralise and repudiate products which we have always sold in line with consumer trends, it’s important for us to offer you a choice between well-known products and new natural products containing less or no sugar and less or no additives.

So let’s be “bewosst” or fully aware when choosing what we drink. Let’s be inquisitive, but scrupulous too as we make our choices as consumers – with our objective being to ban sugars in favour of natural flavours and to discover new drinks that appeal to our taste buds without any extra calories or other harmful products: this is what a “Bewosst” choice means.

Teas and herbal teas are on the up and up. Homemade-tasting iced teas, coconut water, birch water and artisanal lemonades have become extremely popular and are all the rage. Even in our wine shops you’ll find a wide selection of organic wines made from organically-grown grapes, free from herbicides and pesticides.

“Bewosst drénken” means choosing your drink and knowing what its ingredients are and where they come from.
