1941

Founding of the company Wilhelm Grabher & Co in Lustenau, Austria

The foundation for the Vorarlberg family business 11er Nahrungsmittel GmbH were laid by Wilhelm Grabher in 1941. Back in those days he founded a small mobile green grocery business together with his brothers. Eventually the leading producer of potato specialties in Austria was to develop from the concept of supplying the surrounding villages with fresh vegetables. The pledge of quality was already a firm part of our company culture then and continues as such to the present day.

A treat from Austria

For Austrians enjoying food has an important part to play because we are a people of gourmets and hosts. We love good food and enjoy it even more when sharing it with family and friends. Austrian cuisine is varied and tasty; it has more to offer than just dumplings and Viennese Schnitzel.

 

Above all the potato plays an important part in the cuisine of the Alpine republic. Irrespective of whether boiled, fried or roast, as a purée or potato rosti - the potato is an integral part of Austrian cuisine.

  

We use our background as a source of inspiration for production of the 11er potato specialties. Using regional recipes and indigenous ingredients so we put the finest delicacies from Austria on your plate.

From the field to the plate

There are more than 5000 varieties of potato worldwide. However one potato is not the same as another. In order to ensure that our products have the distinctive golden-yellow fried colour we only use potatoes which have yellow flesh from the best growing regions along the Danube, the March and from the southern Bavarian area.

 

Here we rely upon the many years of experience of our 11er farmers. They have been looking after the cultivation of our potatoes and their harvesting for very many years now. They ensure that the quality of our potatoes remains constant. This is how we are able to get the most out of the potato.

Our POTATO

Agria

The Agria is one of the German varieties of potato with the longest tradition. It convinces with its fine flavour as well as its pure deep yellow-coloured flesh.

Fontane

The Fontane is the third of the bunch and was also originally grown from the Agria. With its vibrant sun yellow flesh colour it completes our assortment of potatoes.

Lady marilla

The Lady Amarilla was originally developed from the Agria. Its characteristics and shape of its tubers for example make it perfectly suited for "Our Best“ French fries.

Romina

The Romina is the Austrian among our potato varieties. It is the youngest of them all because it matures early and the crop can therefore be harvested before the others.
