The top quality is achieved through the collaboration of many diligent and professional members of staff at Estyria Naturprodukte GmbH, covering everything from production of the seed to the dedication of the oil millers, who with their wealth of experience and finely tuned instinct are responsible for deciding when the pumpkin seed mass is ready for pressing, and the final sensory approval by the quality assurance team. At Estyria each step is performed with passion in order to produce the best Styrian pumpkin seed oil PGI – and with the designation as Pumpkin Seed Oil Champion 2018/2019 this outstanding work has now been honoured.
