Corporate Philosophy

The JBL philosophy is based on the 17 basic ideas of the UN, of which, in addition to global goals, the following goals are at the top of the agenda in the JBL company:

  • Top quality & innovations
  • Integrating research results
  • Climate protection measures
  • Gender equality & tolerance
  • Sustainability in products, raw materials and production
  • Company growth yes, but not at the expense of employees
  • Marine conservation projects
  • Support for environmental protection projects

"Conduct your daily business in a way that lets you sleep peacefully at night"  

Joachim Böhme, founder of the company JBL

This sentence of the company founder and the two current managing directors Stella Kaltenmeier-Böhme & Roland Böhme is still actively lived by the entire JBL team today. JBL is committed to its product quality and guarantees everyone that it fulfils what it promises. Should any dissatisfaction arise, the product will be replaced and efforts will be made to see where improvements can be made.

“Our aim is to produce the world’s best fish food“

is what Roland Böhme says about the new building for the fish food production in 2016.

Integrating research results

The annual research expeditions complement the knowledge gained in the laboratory. Time and again, the practical tests in the rainforest, in the coral reefs or in the desert ensure that JBL develops new products or enhances existing ones. The research findings are passed on to the interested public in specialist journals and at congresses.

Climate protection measures

Sustainability is more than just a nice buzz word for us. We permanently and actively live it! A few examples of this: every free square metre of the roofs of JBL production, storage and office buildings has been fitted with photovoltaic elements. This means that JBL can produce most of the electricity it needs itself.

For company cars, low-emission diesel cars with mild hybrids were purchased. Purely electric vehicles with their lithium depletion issues currently remain a cause for concern.

Gender equality & tolerance

In our company we have recruited employees from many different nations. Gender is not taken into account. Qualifications come first - never gender!  

Sustainability in products, raw materials and production

JBL cares for nature and doesn’t process whole fish, which have been especially farmed for this purpose or which have been taken from the wild. Instead JBL food manufacturing uses margin pieces of fish fillet, leftover from food intended for human consumption. This pure fish protein is supplemented by minerals to provide balanced nutrition for the varying fish species. And this enables JBL to fine tune the protein/fat ratio of every food as required.

JBL was the first company in the industry to introduce resource-saving refill packaging for food, water conditioners and plant fertilisers. With the food tins of the JBL PRONOVO range, too, a major step towards recyclability was achieved by using a mono-material for the tin, sealing foil, label and lid. 

Company growth not at the expense of employees

Company growth is a primary goal in today's economy in order to survive in the market. But care is always taken to ensure that when turnover grows, the number of employees is also adjusted. More turnover also means more work. In addition, work is constantly being done to simplify our processes through optimised IT. This saves time and reduces pressure for our employees. There is no fixed holiday period, so that the employees can adjust their holiday times to their private needs. 

Marine conservation projects

With their influence on aquaristics, the world’s aquatic ecosystems are particularly close to JBL's heart. Reef protection projects in the Caribbean are supported as well as shark protection. Because without the top predators, the marine ecosystem would collapse. 

We give financial support to small local projects in the North Sea, such as collecting ghost nets. We continue to support the contacts made with local nature conservation projects on our JBL research expeditions, even after our return. One example of this is at the Rio Claro Nature Reserve in Colombia.

PUSH-Nachrichten von JBL

Als Teil des W3C-Standards definieren Web-Benachrichtigungen eine API für Endbenutzer-Benachrichtigungen, die über den Browser Benachrichtigungen an die Desktop- und / oder Mobilgeräte der Nutzer gesendet werden. Auf den Endgeräten erscheinen Benachrichtigungen, wie sie der Endnutzer von auf dem Gerät installierten Apps kennt (bspw. E-Mails).

Diese Benachrichtigungen ermöglichen es einem Webseitenbetreiber seine Nutzer so lange zu kontaktieren, wie seine Nutzer einen Browser offen haben - ungeachtet dessen, ob der Nutzer gerade die Webseite besucht oder nicht.

Um Web-Push-Benachrichtigungen senden zu können, braucht man nur eine Website mit einem installierten Web-Push-Code. Damit können auch Marken ohne Apps viele Vorteile von Push-Benachrichtigungen nutzen (personalisierte Echtzeit-Kommunikationen genau im richtigen Moment.)

Web-Benachrichtigungen sind Teil des W3C-Standards und definieren eine API für Endbenutzer-Benachrichtigungen. Eine Benachrichtigung ermöglicht es, den Benutzer außerhalb des Kontexts einer Webseite über ein Ereignis, wie beispielsweise über eine neuen Blog Beitrag, zu benachrichtigen.

Diesen Service stellt die JBL GmbH & Co. KG kostenlos zur Verfügung, welcher genauso einfach aktiviert, wie deaktiviert werden kann.
