Keltenhof Frischprodukte: wild herbs, edible flowers & microgreens
Keltenhof FrischprodukteFilderstadt, Germany
Keltenhof owner and managing director Gerhard Daumüller is a classic farmer and master gardener. With his willingness to always try new and innovative things, he has truly made a name for himself nationwide, especially in top gastronomy. "Three to four times a year I come up with a new idea in terms of the colour, cultivation or size of a product," states Gerhard. “Regardless of how high the requirements of my star chefs are, they know that we’ll provide them with excellent herbs and greens. Our vegetables always have intense aromas, crisp leaves and attractive colours, all year round." Working with a team with over 70 committed people, Gerhard truly feels like the company is one big family. However, looking at his own role in the business, he does not merely view himself as a supplier: “I see myself as a partner that stands on equal footing with his customers.”
"JRE: a large network characterized by quality and standards that we can be proud of. We will continue to actively accompany this culinary path."
Owner Keltenhof Frischprodukte
Good climate, good soil
Keltenhof Frischprodukte is located in the town of Filderstadt, in the heart of the Baden-Württemberg region. From here, the Swabian Alb is well within sight. As well as the Schönbuch Nature Park, which begins on the western edge of the city. As it’s situated in Southern Germany, the state of Baden-Württemberg has a relatively warm climate. So it comes as no surprise that the state’s capital Stuttgart, where the Keltenhof products are grown, offers excellent soils.
Salad & Superfood
In addition to the company’s impressive range of microgreens and wild herbs, Keltenhof recently launched a new product: superfoods. The super formula for this special baby leaf mix consists of three ingredients: kale, spinach and watercress – all offered in their freshest, most crisp state. Together, the bitter nuttiness of the kale, the juicy mildness of the spinach and the mustardy spiciness of the watercress result in a magic mixture with an extraordinary flavour composition. Yet another imaginative innovation, brilliantly invented by Keltenhof.
Keltenhof herbs on culinary journeys
Keltenhof’s herbs not only look good fresh in dishes but also offer completely new possibilities. For example as a herbal balm and in freeze-dried form. With bold ideas and exemplary quality, Keltenhof has been following sustainable, creative paths for more than two decades. The variety of wild herbs, salads and vegetables from the Keltenhof is still unique in Europe today.
