An Austrian producer of International Featured Standard (IFS) Food certified high-quality salad dressings in convenient portion packs is already very active in delivering its products to the local gastronomy, local catering companies as well as to hospitals. As the company expanded its production during the last years it is now able to broaden its scope and to enter the German and Swiss market by establishing distribution service agreements with local partners.



The Austrian company is located in the southern part of Austria where it passionately started with the production and trade with the regionally typical pumpkin seed oil. In 2016 the company decided to follow the market needs and thus it also started to trade with different combined salad dressings in convenient portion packs (small portions for single-use). The company disposes of its own filling assembly, which allows the latter to create innovative packaging designs that can be adapted according to the clients individual wishes.

As the quality standard of the dressings is very high the company is also able to deliver its products to Austrian gourmet restaurants and/or to the demanding catering scene.

All dressings have an IFS Food certificate, which is a standard for certifying the safety and quality of food products and packaging processes to which all food suppliers and producers of unpacked food have to apply. Additionally, the company has been evaluated on its ecological footprint by the Technical University of Graz.

The company is now looking for distributors, who have a good network in Switzerland and Germany within the HORECA and the gourmet catering food sector.

Currently there are five varieties of healthy and high-quality salad dressings in 20 ml or 35 ml single-use packs available:

- The packaging units are available in 10, 50 or 250 pieces per box.
- The minimum delivery quantities start at 1.000 pieces.
- Annual production capacity: 10 million.
- Individual recipes, ingredients or private labeling is possible.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The advantage of the Austrian company is that it disposes of its own filling stations so that it can meet its clients individual wishes concerning brand, design, packaging material and recipe. Without special whishes from its clients the offered bottle shaped portion packs are made in a descreetly elegant design ready to use for gourmet gastronomy. Furthermore the client puts a lot of emphasis in the quality management of the products by using only regional ingredients with very high standards. So it comes that they are constantly trying new formulas for their dressings.
