Known throughout the world for its' fairytale castles, Oktoberfest and beer, Bavaria is also a major agricultural region in Germany, producing high quality food with environmentally compatible cultivation methods that is essential to the preservation and sustainable use of the alpine region. Bavaria is a GMO free zone as the German government discourages the cultivation of genetically modified (GM) crops by imposing strict liability for accidental contamination with GMOs. German public opinion is also averse to food that contains GMOs and are extremely environmentally conscious.
For centuries, locals have foraged in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps, gathering herbs, vegetables and berries, conveying the natural health benefits to the next generation. Thanks to the Bavarian Ministry of Agriculture leading a research of team experts, the area has become a protected forest of natural and medicinal herbs and foods that are sourced and utilized in many of the products developed by Essendorfer Genusschmelzerei.
