Change is the requirement for every improvement.

Be bold, try out new things and invest in the future! We have been interested in innovations outside the world of textiles since 2000. We are involved in various start-ups as well as two German venture capital funds.

ETHCL Food Labs GmbH

Healthy nutrition is very important to us. Especially in hectic times, it matters to have a healthy snack. Peppermint therefore has a stake in ETHCL Food Labs GmbH, which combines the OH MY DOUGH and TSAMPA brands. The Berlin start-up offers the ready-to-eat biscuit dough OH MY DOUGH for snacking in organic quality and TSAMPA energy bars as well as other products based on the roasted barley flour of the same name. The naturalness of the ingredients has top priority.

Life Sciences / Medical Technology

We participate in a venture capital fund (CBF-1), which invests in young companies in the healthcare sector. We manage this fund with our strong partners through Peppermint VenturePartners GmbH. The CBF-1 investment portfolio currently includes eight companies from the fields of medical technology, diagnostics and digital health as well as platform technologies in the healthcare sector, who have convinced us with their innovative ideas.
