We were still waiting for the nice weather 😉; today we are starting the Bike to work 2024 challenge. At least 4 teams will be pedaling for Fortisa in June, doing something for their health and for our environment at the same time. We wish all participants a good and safe ride and, above all, lots of fun in the Bike to Work Challenge 2024!

Solar power from the Fortisa roof

Solar power from the Fortisa roof

We are proud of our latest investment: since December last year, we have been producing our own solar power on a 700mÂČ area, thanks to the PV system from Helion Energy AG.

All the electricity generated flows directly into our business, covering around 7-10% of our total energy consumption. With an output of 147 kWp and an annual production of 164,900 kWh, we are making an active contribution to CO2 reduction and thus actively helping to shape a sustainable future.

We are grateful for the sunny days that make our system even more efficient.

Small but important steps towards plastic reduction

Small but important steps towards plastic reduction

Thank you to Dusan Mirkovic (Havi) and Jonny Schneeberger (Fortisa) for the idea, conception and implementation of this simple but effective measure to reduce plastic. By replacing the plastic films with reusable straps, more than 3 tons of plastic are saved per year.

Hallo, ich bin Eltijon Robeli und bin 15 Jahre alt.

Anfangs August 2023 habe ich meine Lehre als Kaufmann EFZ bei der wundervollen Firma Fortisa AG begonnen. Mein Hobby ist Fussball spielen und ich liebe es zu schlafen. :) Weiter verbringe ich gerne Zeit mit meiner Familie und meinen Freunden. Ich habe meine Lehre hier angefangen, weil die Arbeit hier abwechslungsreich und spannend ist. Das Team ist sehr freundlich, lustig und immer hilfsbereit. Auf die kommenden drei Jahre meiner Ausbildung freue ich mich sehr.

We are proud to welcome Warren Anderson (Corporate Senior Vice President at McDonald's) and the Supply Chain Team of McDonald's Switzerland at Fortisa today.

On Tuesday, we had the opportunity to visit the farm the Hubacher and Messer family in Kirchlindach BE and got a deep insight into the cultivation methods of IP-Suisse for regenerative agriculture. The Fortisa team is proud to use IP-Suisse wheat in McDonald's buns.

Der angesagte Dinkel Bun.

Dinkel ist eine alte Getreidesorte, die in den letzten Jahren immer beliebter geworden ist. Sie gilt als gesĂŒnder und ressourcenschonender, da sie eine hohe VertrĂ€glichkeit aufweist (auch bei GlutenunvertrĂ€glichkeit) und der Anbau von Dinkel weniger DĂŒnger sowie Pestizide benötigt als herkömmlicher Weizen. Zudem haben Dinkelbrote einen angenehm nussigen Geschmack sowie eine leichte, lockere Textur.

Auch zu finden im Configurator hier.

We thank them for their trust and the good cooperation.

We are aware of our responsibility for the environment.

Our climatization systems are powered with proane and CO2. So we use natural refrigerants  for all our cooling pruposes.

Fortisa family event 2022

Our annual Fortisa family event took place last Saturday at Christian von Ins in Oberbipp. In addition to a delicious barbecue, we enjoyed a guided tour of the farm and learned a lot about the clever pigs. A successful event for young and old!

Christian von Ins is our long-time partner for the sustainable reuse of bread that cannot be sold. We were able to see live how, thanks to this cooperation, valuable feed for IP Suisse pigs is created from discarded buns.

A big thank you to Christian for his hospitality and the exciting insight into his business!

Research project

Research project

Fortisa’s research for natural, durable and innovative small breads.

In a multi-year project in cooperation with the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW), Diosna GmbH and Innosuisse - the Swiss Innovation Agency, innovative ways are being studied for a natural preservation, sugar reduction and improved baking properties of small baked goods.300 lactic acid bacteria were isolated from grain-based foods, identified and checked for their functional properties. Lactic acid bacteria with proven functional properties are used as starter cultures in sourdough fermentations and integrated in in baking tests in the laboratory and on Fortisa’s production line.The research work is carried out under the direction of #Susanne Miescher Schwenninger and as part of the doctoral thesis by #Denise MĂŒller (in the picture). More information on the project's progress will follow.
