Our company has gradually evolved into what it is today. Founded in 1960 by René Gautschi, the focus back then was on ice cream specialities. Soups and sauces were to come along later and be constantly developed and refined by Jean-Pierre Spichiger after taking over the company in 1980. 1989 sparked the idea for the production of sauces from organically grown ingredients. The philosophy of a sustainable enterprise continues to define who we are at Gautschi Spezialitäten.
To mark the construction of our new production facility, we decided to shape our own environment. We created a hedge out of local wood to match the still intact brookside on the company grounds. Rough pastures also form part of our habitat. It was only during the course of our work that we became fully aware of the lengths organic farmers go to (maximum effort and minimum return) to keep the environment as intact as possible. In support of these efforts, we decided to manufacture organic sauces.
We have since expanded our production facilities threefold. Organic products have contributed significantly to this success.
