Rewards en masse for Estyria
A shower of gold for the Styrian pumpkin seed oil PGI
Guaranteeing the highest quality possible always has been and always will be our number one priority at Estyria Naturprodukte GmbH. Thankfully, the hard work pays off in the end. All our products have an impressive record of awards to show off. We are proud to lead national as well as international rankings for any kind of sensory tasting. We are proud to call ourselves producers of the world’s best Styrian pumpkin seed oil PGI. But let’s quit the talking and let the figures speak for themselves:
The world’s best pumpkin seed oil
Not less than 180 gold medals undermine the company’s philosophy and prove that loving what you do combined with constantly improving the product’s quality leads to overall success. Our Styrian pumpkin seed oil PGI not only gets called “liquid gold” in Austrian households, but it does shine in pure gold for real. So far, we have received the national award for Styrian pumpkin seed oil PGI in gold 93 times. Moreover, the oil proudly can call itself winner of the pumpkin seed oil Championats 2018/2019. It, therefore, is indeed the world’s best pumpkin seed oil.
International gourmets are always on the hunt for high-quality products. Luckily, they don’t hold back when it comes to worshipping them. The Gault&Millau’s testers of 2021 rewarded our one-of-a-kind pumpkin seed oil with a gold medal. It has been listed in the gourmet guide for the fifth time already. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that our Styrian pumpkin seed oil can be found in restaurants all over the world. Originating from Austria, it adds the final touch to many dishes all over the world.
Best quality even during demanding times
We love what we do. What we love even more is seeing all the effort put in paying off. Besides Gault&Millau and Championats, the DLG (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft) has rewarded our popular pumpkin seed oil with yet another gold medal. In total, the association has honored Estyria’s products with 82 DLG gold medals. This award in particular stands for the highest quality possible for each of our product.
We not only want to meet our customer’s expectations, but we want to exceed them. That’s why we won’t take any breaks – together with our more than 1.000 partners in agriculture we are already working on surpassing our current quality standards once again.

stamp press process
While modernity has brought progress in many areas, the traditional Styrian stamp press process is still the best way of making pumpkin seed oil. The main difference between this and other pressing methods is that we work with open roasting pans. At our plant, people check when the pumpkin seeds are perfectly roasted and so will yield the very best oil. This enables our experienced oil millers to produce the pumpkin seed oil that has won more prizes than any other – and which as a result of this type of pressing retains all the natural constituents. The untreated oil is not filtered; the particles that make it cloudy settle naturally when the oil is left to rest.Read more
