A new Steirerkraft product
The Steirerkraft product family has gained a new member!
And it is a “fiery” one.
We are pleased to introduce our spicy Styrian snack mix. Available for the catering trade (in a 1000 g pack) and in retail food outlets (in a 100 g pack).
The gastro team will be presenting the spicy mixture of Styrian pumpkin seeds in the roasted and salted, wasabi and paprika & chilli varieties at the autumn trade fairs in September. The mixture is particularly suitable for hotel bars and cocktail bars, and in the seminar sector it is a regional alternative to traditional nibbles.
