Sustainable rice from Styria

Sustainable rice from Styria

Styrian rice by Steirerkraft is more than just an innovative new product – it’s a genuine regional alternative, and truly special.

Grown and processed 100% in Styria, this sustainable, regional alternative is also a real highlight in terms of flavour. Cultivated using water-saving methods, it doesn’t have to be transported for long distances thanks to its local origins. To top it all, it’s completely carbon-neutral and GMO-free.


Styrian medium grain rice has an appealing, subtly nutty flavour and pairs perfectly not only with classic Styrian cuisine but also with international dishes. A veritable all-rounder, it works equally well as a risotto or a side dish.
Versatile, sustainable and absolutely regional!


Steirerkraft rice is now available in our online shop and in our Steirerkraft Kernothek. It’s also stocked by a chain of Austrian grocery stores.
Meaning Austrians can now enjoy one of their favourite carbs from regional producers!

Traditional Styrian
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.
