Our maxim

We stand for a responsible food culture.

Canteens, restaurants and other food providers play an essential role for food culture: by using good products they can make use of their enormous reach to strengthen the overall awareness for high quality food. This awareness starts with the knowledge of the origin of products, producers and processing techniques.

Together with my team, I accompany and consult your gastronomy projects and concepts, responsible food production, trade or project to foster regional development. 30 years of widespread experience in hospitality, (star-) gastronomy, education, union commitment and my fundamental wine expertise provide the background and knowledge which turn your project into a success.

COMPETENCES

In a world of responsible and handcrafted culinary art, we are your partner and support for various topics

The culinary communication of your philosophy and values

Culinary production & image transfer

No matter where on earth, no matter which event - there is a high chance that the same luxury products such as beef fillet, foie gras, tuna and caviar are provided. In regard of their environmental impacts these products must be seen critical and are no longer the single available option. We support you in finding high quality products, which are produced in a responsible manner in your vicinity and could easily replace the obsolete products. Your values should be represented in your event and the products you provide - our target is to create an overall fitting concept, in which the event communicates your company's character.

Responsibility and taste for your employees

Consultancy for the catering industry

Millions of people are eating day by day their lunch at the office’s, kindergarten's, school's, hospital's or university's canteen. The canteen as buyers of agricultural products have a big impact. It is also their responsibility to provide a balanced and healthy menu in regard of their productivity but also for the overall satisfaction. There is a big difference between being just a food provider or actually taking responsibilities. We are accompanying and supporting you on this journey. We aim to foster a catering concept that is actually representing your company's values and corporate culture.

Knowledge needs to be transferred

Knowledge Transfer, Talks and Lectures

The future belongs to nutrition, that is produced in a responsible manor. In regard of future challenges such as population growth and limited resources, it is our duty to make sure, that the origin of our food is protected and also in future, a savory and healthy nutrition can be provided for a fulfilling lifestyle. It is vital, to connect the value of our nutrition not only with taste, but furthermore it is the production and processing of food and beverages which have an enormous impact on their quality. To appreciate the quality of products, the knowledge about origin and production needs to be transferred and communicated. In our opinion, it is the responsibility of the food distributors and providers to make sure, that this knowledge is transferred. Information of the supply chain is especially important in times of lacking transparency and globalization. We see knowledge transfer as a powerful tool to fight for more transparency and high quality products that are produced fair and regional. To spread our experience and knowledge we provide seminars (half days, full days) and lectures/talks to topics about responsibility in food production and consumption.

„The future belongs to products that are produced in a responsible manner. A good nutrition is not only healthy for the consumer but also for nature and plays a vital role for a healthy life and environment. The quality of a product is determined by the whole process of the production. Education and the transfer of knowledge plays an essential role in culinary art.“
