Regional and sustainable
Our oil mill was founded back in 1928, in western Styria, the land that Archduke Johann referred to as the “paradise of Styria”. Now in our third generation, we produce our Styrian pumpkin seed oil here, using gentle roasting and pressing techniques. We believe in sourcing our raw materials regionally and in working sustainably for future generations.
For this reason we combine long-established knowledge passed down through the generations with the technical opportunities and quality standards afforded by the modern age: so that we can produce this precious oil from the seed of the Styrian pumpkin.
Our Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil has won awards for the 21st time in a row for its quality, flavour, ingredients, and presentation. The high quality processing as well as its deep green hue and nutty flavour make it a culinary wonder.
Like all vegetable oils, pumpkin seed oil has no cholesterol, but is rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids and Vitamin E. It also contains minerals and secondary plant components. The many accolades it has garnered reflect its high quality standards and provide assurance of quality for our customers.
Taste the joy
Our store, adjoining the mill, stocks our “precious oil” and many other Styrian specialities. You are of course most welcome to sample and perhaps even purchase Styrian products, and experience the Styrian way of life here.
By advance arrangement, we are always pleased to take you on a guided tour of our business and let you into the secrets of oil production. From pumpkin seed oil to various salad oils and cooking oils, not to mention vinegars and wines, you will experience what culinary pleasure really means – namely, a delight for all the senses.
Quality through tradition
You can create wonderful things when time-honoured expertise in the manufacture of “precious oil” is underpinned by the highest quality standards. That’s why our company believes strongly in keeping a close eye on things, all the way from the raw materials to the finished product.
The quality seal “Steirisches Kürbiskernöl ggA” certifies the origin of our pumpkin seeds and is a guarantee for 100 % pure pumpkin seed oil from the first pressing. External checks and monitoring (IFS and Organic) as well as regular inspections by nationally accredited testing bodies guarantee consistently high quality and assure the quality of our products.
