Hospitality and food industry – Premium quality for your food

Product quality in the hospitality and food industry depends on many factors, but high-quality ingredients are of paramount importance when it comes to great taste. With Van Hessen, SARVAL and GERLICHER, a total of three SARIA Group subsidiaries stand ready to help you provide customers with outstanding food.

What we offer

Our Van Hessen subsidiary is an international leader in the field of natural casings. In addition to our comprehensive product know-how, you benefit in particular from our exceptional performance in terms of the consistent quality and dimensions of the natural casings supplied. Standardised sizes and qualities are key criteria for sausage production, not only in the production process but also for subsequent sale. It is also important that the natural casings can be filled easily and are strong enough to be processed by machine without tearing. Van Hessen offers the right natural casings for each production-specific filling process and any subsequent processing steps. These casings also meet the desire for greater sustainability in the food sector, with animal by-products resulting from slaughtering being transformed into high-quality, safe foodstuffs.

Whether you operate a restaurant, hotel kitchen, canteen or snack bar, GERLICHER is committed to supplying you with premium-quality frying oil tailored to the respective foods and applications. Long lifetimes enable economic efficiency. Your end customers also benefit from the fact that due to their purely vegetable composition, GERLICHER’s premium frying oils are not only tastier, but also healthier. They are free from artificial flavourings, virtually free from trans fatty acids and are produced without genetic engineering.

Fat is a flavour carrier; adding it often makes it possible to dispense with artificial flavourings when producing foodstuffs. Fats of animal origin also have the advantage that they are odourless and tasteless and therefore do not adulterate the intrinsic taste of the food in question. In addition, they extend the shelf life of products. In the food industry, SARVAL’s natural, high-quality products are in demand for the production of baked goods, soups and frozen meals, among other items.
