Who is Belkorn

 

Belkorn, which was known as Biokorn until 2014, is a family-owned biscuit baking company whose origins lie in an organic bread bakery. Since 1965, Belkorn has been baking healthy and delicious biscuits, by taking the best from nature in a responsible way and with respect for the environment.

 

Today’s third generation remains resolutely true to its respect for traditional recipes. The family takes great care to blend respect for tradition with modern production and packaging lines, as demanded by today’s need for efficiency and very stringent food safety requirements.

 

Organic biscuits

Since the beginning, Belkorn has used ingredients which are prepared in a natural and environmentally friendly way to make biscuits which have a richer flavour, and are free from preservatives, artificial flavouring and colouring. Belkorn only uses plant-based margarine without palm oil.

 

By using unrefined ingredients, Belkorn’s biscuits are rich in fibres and minerals, and all the important nutritional elements are retained.

 

Organic quality is one of the company’s cornerstones. Belkorn’s organic biscuits carry the official EU organic label, a guarantee of organic authenticity.

 

O% added sugar biscuits using ingredients

which all have a natural origin

Belkorn also produces healthy biscuits with no added sugar for diabetics and anybody needing/wanting to limit their sugar intake.

 

Belkorn bakes its 0% added sugar biscuits using ingredients with a natural origin.

 

Belkorn also uses fibres and maltitol to replace sugar.

Maltitol is obtained from wheat and therefore still has a natural origin. However as an ingredient, maltitol is not allowed to carry the organic label.

Our values

 

The best from nature since 1965

Healthy and delicious biscuits are what Belkorn is all about. Since 1965, Belkorn has unwaveringly chosen natural ingredients which are prepared in an  environmentally friendly way.

 

Belkorn bakes delicious biscuits with a richer flavour, without any preservatives, artificial flavouring or colouring.

 

By using unrefined ingredients, Belkorn’s biscuits are rich in fibres and minerals, and all the important nutritional elements are retained.

No Palm oil

Furthermore, Belkorn only uses plant-based margarine without palm oil.

By doing so, Belkorn helps to reduce global deforestation and protect our planet.

Belkorn uses only plant-based margarines and a mixture of oil from chia plant seeds, sunflower seeds and cocoa butter. Chia plant seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and contain calcium, phosphorous and potassium.

Respecting people and nature

Belkorn bakes biscuits with great care for quality, the environment and people.

It seems like a simple philosophy, but in today’s society, it’s not always so easy to maintain.

Belkorn has remained unwaveringly true to its basic values and philosophy for three generations.

Passionate about healthy biscuits

Creating and baking healthy and organic biscuits is in our nature and is our passion.

In the 1980s, Belkorn’s BISkids were the first organic kids’ and babies’ biscuits in Europe.

Today, Belkorn is still a trendsetter in the development of kids’ and babies’ biscuits with unrefined and fibre-rich ingredients or fruit juices. We closely monitor new ingredient developments, and changes in consumer habits and needs. We talk directly to our customers locally and abroad to keep up-to-date about trends. We regularly introduce new varieties to our range.

 

We recently expanded our ranges with mini-biscuits in handy pocket sachets.

Rigorous about quality and safety

Belkorn places great emphasis on quality and safety.

 

We rigorously verify the quality of our ingredients and end products, based on regulatory requirements and in accordance with HACCP laws.

 

Furthermore, Belkorn is certified by several reputed standards organisations such as IFS. IFS certification ensures that Belkorn fulfils all their stringent quality and safety requirements. We are very proud to have the higher level IFS certification.

 

Belkorn is also certified by the EU organic label, a guarantee of organic authenticity.

 

But Belkorn goes one step further:

We have recently introduced sophisticated X-ray equipment so that we can give an even better guarantee of the quality of our biscuits. Our X-ray equipment detects and ejects any metal and other high density foreign objects.

We regularly invest in new equipment and continuously seek to enhance quality and safety further.

 

In other words, Belkorn takes food quality and safety extremely seriously.
