At Peter Greven, sustainability and responsible use of natural resources have always been fundamental aspects of the corporate philosophy. Therefore, all products are based on natural, renewable raw materials. 

We strive to keep a focus on sustainability with all of our general corporate actions and our products themselves and also to continuously improve in that area.




Price information technical products

For the 3rd quarter of 2024 we have seen increasing prices for the tallow and vegetable based fatty acids again. As they are our main raw materials, we had to adjust the pricing of most products accordingly.
