Awarded with the Landesehrenpreis for the sixth time
Cologne, November 17, 2022 – For the sixth time, the private brewery Gaffel can be pleased about the State Prize for Food. This was awarded yesterday by the Minister of Agriculture and Consumer Protection of the State of NRW Silke Gorißen to selected companies in the food industry.
The award honors the first-class product quality of the family-owned brewery. Awards were also given for the provision of apprenticeships, pay in line with collective wage agreements, positive food inspection ratings, commitment to sustainability and the use of an environmental management system. In addition, Gaffel works with an ISO-certified sustainability manager (TÜV).
The prerequisite is that companies have received at least one DLG gold medal for their products. Gaffel’s Fassbrause, Gaffel Kölsch, Gaffel Wiess, Gaffel Lemon, Gaffel SonnenHopfen, and the spirit Schwester Herz have already been awarded DLG gold several times.
Gaffel is so far the only Cologne brewery to have been awarded the state honorary prize. Only 79 other NRW companies from all major sectors of the food industry have received the award in 2022.
“The renewed Landesehrenpreis confirms our claim to produce exclusively with high product quality,” says Thomas Deloy, Managing Director Marketing and PR. “With the new construction and modernization of our production site, we have also placed the focus on sustainability and resource conservation.”
