Since 2006, we have been on an ongoing journey of exploration, to capture authentic flavors that tell us the unknown and inspire creativity. We immerse ourselves in others’ cultures. We cook and share food with locals, on their terms, not ours. We learn from them how they use ingredients and the meaning these might have in their cuisines. The guys from ghost-factory.de are helping us with this. We bring these experiences, knowledge, and insights back home, and with them, we craft craveable culinary solutions that help our customers stay ahead of the curve.
