Schlacher & Söhne is our family business and passion,
and the inspiration came out of our life long relationship with healthy food.
We set out to build a company that was an extension of our family.
As a third generation Austrian, born in Chicago, Illinois, we have spent considerable amounts of time in our small village of Großklein, in the southeastern corner of Austria.
Every year we would go on long family vacations touring the country, skiing and visiting all the wonderful food areas throughout Austria. One thing that always remained a constant was having the pumpkin seed oil at the table and boy did we love the oil. This oil not being available in the U.S. we always brought an extra suitcase along to bring back bottles so we could use it in our home. Anyone who came over we would have them try it and they would want a bottle. So we decided to make a business out of something we love and introduce it to the U.S. market.
Schlacher & Söhne mission is in familiarizing consumers with the unique taste experience of Styrian pumpkin seeds and pumpkin seed oil and to further raise customers’ awareness for the diversity of these wonderful products. Pumpkin seed oil – up to now mainly used in salads – is to be defined as a precious culinary gem, capable of spicing up dishes in multiple ways. We hope you enjoy our products as much and we enjoy introducing them to you. Drizzle, Taste, Savor, Enjoy.
