Ethical and lawful conduct is a top priority for the Oetker-Group in its own business activities and in its relationships with all business partners and customers. Due to the strong international growth of the Oetker-Group and the increasing legal requirements, the topic of Compliance therefore has become considerably more important. Therefore, a Compliance Management System was developed for the entire Oetker-Group.
Within the framework of this system, a Compliance Organisation was established whose Compliance Officers are available as neutral and independent contact persons for any questions in relation to the topic of Compliance.
Furthermore, the Oetker-Group has established a whistleblower procedure that enables individuals, companies and other organisations to report violations of applicable law (e.g. bribery, fraud, violation of human rights and environmental regulations), of the Oetker-Group's internal guidelines (e.g. Code of Conduct) or of the Oetker-Group's Supplier Code of Conduct or concerns regarding a potential or actual violation of these regulations.
If you have any information about possible violations of the law concerning a company of the Oetker-Group, you have various options for sending us your information, also absolutely anonymously via our Compliance Hotline System.
The following reporting channels are available:
- Compliance Hotline of the Oetker-Group – anonymous message submission
- Reporting by e-mail to the Compliance Organisation of the Oetker-Group mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
- Reporting by letter to
Dr. August Oetker KG
Corporate Compliance Committee
- Reporting by telephone via a (free) telephone service using a voice message
- Reports by employees of the Oetker-Group to the management, supervisor, (Group) Compliance Officer or otherwise designated contact person of the respective subsidiary (e.g. in the course of a personal conversation).
We will carefully examine the matter and take the necessary measures.
