The People
Behind Ecoana

ECOANA = Mother of Ecology
(pronounced eco-ana)

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

ECOANA FOOD

The Ecoana product range aims to break the nontransparent and questionable consumer cycle. Every time we consume, we unconsciously damage our environment, people and animals. In addition, our food now has many ingredients that are not good for our health. - There are great farmers and small manufacturing companies out there in the shadows of enterprises, producing vegan and organic in a transparent, ethically-correct way, and they all have no additives at all. We support these wonderful farmers and the small producers by providing a stage for their products. As CSR experts, we also link each individual product to tree-planting and the promotion of a social project. We personally accompany and document this fantastic small but constant promotion of the common good. We then prepare a CSR report with photos for our customers on a regular basis to inform them about the positive effects. As a result everyone benefits from ECOANA GREEN CIRCLE OF LIFE.

 

How we work

We are looking for the very best ethically correct farmers and producers of vegan organic snacks worldwide. For you, we check the entire production process for sustainability, environmental friendliness and fair production. We take a very close look at their certifications they have and check them at regular intervals for authenticity and quality. From hundreds of farmers and producers and thousands of products, only a few remain that meet our criteria. We then put our ECOANA Guarantee Seal on it, which we then include in our range with a clear conscience. - But that's not all, because together we can do more to make the world a little better and more sustainable. That's why we supply the products with our electrically-powered vehicles, which we refuel with solar or wind energy to the greatest extent possible. We plant trees and promote social projects in the areas of the environment, nature, people and animals. We work transparently, and compliance is an integral part of our corporate culture. We personally implement social projects on behalf of our customers on site, and regularly document them for our customers as CSR reports with photos that they can then use in their sustainability reports.

 

WHO WE ARE

Ecoana is an innovative movement founded by three social entrepreneurs - an artist, an engineer and a business consultant. All three have one thing in common: a great affinity for a fair and peaceful society that treats its environment, animals and nature in a resource-saving and responsible manner. In order to promote our goal (vision) of the common good, we will establish ten different areas over time that will serve as "Open Source Organizations":

 
  • ECO/FOOD

  • ECO/TOURISM

  • ECO/FESTIVAL

  • ECO/SHOP

  • ECO/PUBLISH

  • ECO/CAMPUS

  • ECO/LAB

  • ECO/EDUCATION

  • ECO/FAIR

  • ECO/TALKS

THE ECOANA STORY

For five years, we had been driving our solar van across those countries where agriculture originated: in the Mediterranean region. We listened to the concerns of organic farmers working sustainably and questioned them as to their daily challenges. We researched and analyzed consumer behavior and the needs of NGOs. So far, there have not been any products that comply with our idea of environmental protection and social justice.

Change begins with each
and every one of us!
