Alles für den Gast
“Alles für den Gast Herbst”, held in November, is the leading trade fair for the hotel, restaurant and catering industry and in 2018 it was once again a key event for the gastro team at Estyria. Estyria presented “Liebesgerichte”, its exclusive new Steirerkraft brand campaign, and was the proud recipient of the winner’s trophy in the Styrian pumpkin seed oil championship. Over a vanilla ice cream with Steirerkraft pumpkin seed oil PGI, members of the team engaged in interesting and enjoyable conversations with Austrian customers and gastronomic experts from Bavaria.
The team led by Hermann Meyer also presented the year’s new products: Wertvoll chia seeds from Austria and Wertvoll organic amaranth, Steirerkraft fine white 1-minute polenta and Cooks Love black beans.

The untreated oil is not filtered; the particles that make it cloudy settle naturally when the oil is left to rest.Read more
