Better Breakfast !
Who are we?
Behind Turtle there is a Belgian-German couple, lovers of good things and addicted to entrepreneurship.
In addition to this, you need to know more about it.
Laurence, born in Etterbeek, grew up in Denmark. After her studies she decides to come back to discover her native country. Three days after arriving in Brussels, she met during a party Thilo, a German who had come to work for a German company based in Binche. By the end of the year they were engaged and 6 months later married.
During Laurence's first maternity leave in 2014, they decided to go for it and a year later the first porridges arrived in stores.
" We love working together! We got to know each other in a different way. This common effort towards the same goal has made us even more united as a couple. "
Much has been learned since the launch of Turtle, to make it the success story it is today. And this is still only the beginning!
Turtle wants to be a good company. Which is good for you, by offering you healthy and quality products. But also which feels good all along its path before it ends up in your bowl.
It is completely insane to consume more resources than we produce, in addition to having a population in which the nutritional requirements are not respected.
Turtle, as in La Fontaine's famous fable, is the turtle that will beat the hare.
ORGANIC Our products are all composed of ingredients from organic farming. This has a much less harmful impact than conventional agriculture, thanks to its reductions in the use of chemicals and by being less intensive. Groundwater stays clean, bees continue to do their job and you will not find any toxic substances in your breakfast.
VEGAN We limit the use of ingredients originating from animals as much as possible. The only exception is the Cornflakes coated with milk chocolate, which however are still vegetarian.
A FAIR production
We and our producing partners are committed to purchasing our raw materials in a fair and sensible way.
PROXIMITY Raw materials are purchased from channels close to the production site. In Europe we are major producers of cereals, it would really be foolish to go looking further away!
FAIR Our raw materials are purchased according to high social standards, as established in the specifications of BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative), SA8000 (Social Accountability) and ILO (International Labor Organization). This is to ensure fair and long-term cooperations with our partners.
A truly healthy diet
UNPROCESSED We use whole oats that are simply "flattened" to make flakes. The seeds are the same as when they are on the plant and the fruits are just dried. You will not find much else, excepting some good dark chocolate, in our porridges.
NO ADDED SUGAR means no honey, no coconut flower nectar, no syrup of anything. No refined sugars means that we use natural sweeteners such as unrefined cane sugar or agave syrup.
100% NATURAL You will not find anything else in our porridges besides cereals, seeds, fruits and dark chocolate. That means no salt, no added sugars, no flavour enhancers, no flavourings, no preservatives. Our products are clean, or in other words: #eatclean
Turtle gluten-free porridges are produced with oats that are guaranteed gluten free. Specifically, oats are isolated from gluten sources throughout the production chain, from the field to the packaging in sealed bags to eliminate any risk of cross-contamination. Analyses are regularly carried out to check the purity of the oat grains and that they do not exceed the authorised rates of gluten.
Thanks to the high nutritional value of oats, Organic Classic Glutenfree, Superfood Glutenfree and Choco Banana Turtle porridge are an important addition to a gluten-free diet. Made from bran and whole-grain oatmeal, gluten-free Turtle porridges are an all-natural source of whole grain cereals and fibre, so they can be safely consumed by people with digestive system hypersensitivity or celiac disease.
