City cycling - Cycling for a good climate!

Into the pedals - ready - go! From 16.05. to 05.06.2022, the city cycling campaign "Stadtradeln" will take place again. The aim of this competition is to cycle as many distances (private or business) as possible for 21 days. Cities and municipalities want to achieve more climate protection and quality of life in the communities and convey the fun of cycling.

Every kilometer counts! If only 30% of short journeys of up to six kilometers were made by bicycle instead of by car, around 7.5 million tons of CO2 could be saved!

You can find more information about the campaign here or on the Stadtradeln app.

Hola Peanuts

Start-up meets traditional family business.

Together with the start-up Hola Peanuts from Paderborn, we have developed a great new product: Creamy peanut butter with the flavour of Weinrich chocolate!  The special thing about this peanut butter is that it is 100% handmade in Paderborn with peanut kernels from Argentina and of course traditional Weinrich chocolate from Herford. Yet it gets even better: the peanut butters high protein content combined with the fact that it contains no palm oil or added sugar make a healthy and sustainable snack!

Available from us in the Bruchbude or, of course, in the Hola Peanuts online shop!

The Wandeltage 2021

Rethinking the world and finding solutions so that everyone can live well on our planet! That's what we want to do locally - together with many people and many small or big steps!" - Katharina Walckhoff

So much sustainability is in the region: the Wandeltage 2021!

There is so much sustainability in our region: once a year, the WandelTAGE take place, where companies, schools or initiatives present their contribution to a fair, ecological, common good-oriented present and future.

Weinrich can also be found on the WandelKARTE.

In our Bruchbude on Gänsemarkt, we sell, among other things, broken chocolate and chocolate bars that do not make it onto the classic shop shelf due to small blemishes. In this way, we want to make an important contribution against food waste and give consumers the opportunity to buy our delicious chocolates at a small price.

We will also be selling our delicious chocolates at the market hall in Herford during the "Wandeltage".

From 31.08.21 to 05.09.21 there will be a chocolate fountain every day from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. for snacking and tasting. Take a look!

All those who are curious can find out more about the calendar of events for the Wandeltage and be inspired to break new ground.

Anniversary Sustainable Environment Memorial

To ensure that wild bees, butterflies & co. continue to feel at home in our memorial insect hotel for many years to come, we have, developed in close cooperation with our local Herford Nature Conservation Group (NABU), nesting sites within newly built dry-stone walls as well as planting bees friendly. Wild roses, wild shrubs and summer liliac now provide insects with a diverse range of food. In this way, we want to offer native wild bee species and other insects an all-year-round habitat whilst playing our part in strengthening biodiversity and insect conservation in the region.

Due to the Corona pandemic, which continues to hold the world in its grasp to this day, we were unfortunately unable to celebrate our long-awaited 125th anniversary in 2020 as planned. Nevertheless, in order to honour this special anniversary appropriately, we worked on a special project together with the Herford Recycling Exchange. Our goal was to create an anniversary memorial which combines both Weinrich's long corporate history with our commitment to sustainability. The fruits of our labours using recycled materials in the form of an insect hotel formed using the numbers 1, 2 and 5 is now proudly displayed on our company grounds at the corner of Leineweberstraße.
