What products can I order with my Eco-Box?
We work with selected German and foreign organic producers. This allows us to offer a wide range of food products in addition to fruit and vegetables: meat and sausages, bread, cereals and pasta, eggs and various dairy products, wine, juice, water and much more. You will also find nuts and tropical fruit, tea or coffee in our range. Visit our shop to view our product range. There you will also find special offers and weekly offers.
What are Standard Boxes?
Standard boxes are eco-boxes with a set content – to make your order easy and convenient. You can choose between just fruit, just veggie boxes and mixed fruit and veg boxes as well as special diet- and regional boxes. We also have raw food-, smoothie-, family-, singles-, and office boxes in our range. Even though the box contents are pre-set, the fruit and vegetables can change on a weekly basis. You can find the current weekly box contents of each standard box on our website or you can ask our customer service team. You find the current box contents here. You can also have items exchangde for others if there is anything in the box content that you don’t like or that doesn’t agree with you.
What if there is no suitable standard box for me?
You don’t have to take a standard box. Why don’t you assemble your own individual box instead? In our online shop you can choose what you would like to order. Alternatively you can ring us and our competent customer service team will help you with your shopping.
How can I be sure that everything in the Eco-Box is genuinely organic?
Like all other Eco-Box companies, we are a certified organic trader and undergo yearly inspections. Our German and foreign suppliers are also certified organic producers. That’s how we can guarantee 100% organic. If you want to know more you can find out here
Where do the products of my Eco-Box come from?
We produce a part of the lettuce, courgettes, herbs and cut flowers ourselves. What we don’t produce ourselves we get from certified organic suppliers, mainly our longstanding partners from the local area. For produce that doesn’t grow in Germany all year round or not at all, we use selected foreign organic suppliers. If you would like to know more details please don’t hesitate to ask our customer service team.
In addition you can find further information on the pages of our suppliers – you can find the details here

And if you decide that you would like a break or that you want to stop getting the eco-box altogether, just let us know.
Can I try the Eco-Box without having to commit long-term?
Just to point out: with the eco-box system there are no strings attached. There are no minimum terms, cancellation notice periods and long-term order commitments with us. Despite that you can of course, before you decide which way to go, first start with ordering a trial box. Just let us know your contact details and we will get in touch to discuss everything else.
Can I change or cancel an order?
Certainly. Whether you want to have a break from your regular delivery or cancel the eco-böx altogether or change the box content: just notify us within the order deadlines (mostly one day before delivery) so that no unnecessary costs incur. If you notify us after the order deadlines, charges can incur, for example for an already assembled and packed box.
