Mouth-watering support from Eastern Styria
Frutura, an Eastern Styrian company known for its premium products such as “Blumauer” tomatoes and “Steiermark Genuss” apples, has recently come on board as a new sponsor. As well as providing a nourishing snack for the competitors, these products will also help ensure that the culinary skills categories are perfectly equipped.
The enterprise, which was started more than 20 years ago as a joint project by three farmers, is today a major fruit and vegetable producer throughout Styria. It features some surprising innovations, namely a “thermal veggie world” where geothermal energy is used to produce a constant supply of regional fruit and vegetables in an environmentally friendly way, and one of Europe’s most state-of-the-art banana ripening plants. At EuroSkills 2020, Frutura will not only be supporting competitors in culinary skills such as Cooking or Restaurant Service, but will also be making fresh fruit available to the other competitors as well.
Manfred Hohensinner, managing director of the corporate group, explains why Frutura is supporting EuroSkills 2020 in Graz: “As a vocational skills competition, EuroSkills 2020 is a fantastic platform for young and highly talented skilled workers to showcase their top achievements. I am convinced that staff performance is one of the most important keys to a company’s success. I’m glad that this opportunity exists to give young, skilled workers a stage to show what they can do. Turning out a top-level performance requires high-quality, sustainably produced and locally sourced food such as fruit and vegetables. That’s why I’m delighted that the Frutura group is partnering EuroSkills 2020 and can provide the competitors with some tasty food choices.”
EuroSkills 2020 would like to thank Frutura once again for its fabulous support. We are Skills!
The two managing directors of Frutura, Katrin and Manfred Hohensinner are proud of the “Blumauer” tomatoes – and of supporting EuroSkills 2020 as bronze sponsor.
