The specialisation on ham products is further promoted by building up a pure ham business in Achern and by founding Schinkenhof GmbH & Co. KG.
In 1997 the European Union registered “Black Forest ham” as a “protected geographical indication”, for the protection and appreciation of agricultural foods of a special character and foods with protected designation of origin.
Under the “quick cuisine” (convenience foods) trade name, sliced pork sausage was introduced to the market. A variation of this is the Strasbourg sausage salad with cheese.
Landjäger (spicy smoked sausage), the spicy sausage snack in an angular shape, was the first product to be launched on the market in self-service packaging.
The Hans Adler OHG and Schinkenhof GmbH & Co. KG have been certified in accordance with the International Food Standard.
Schäufele, extra lean cooked shoulder of ham, is a genuine ready-to-eat treat and can be served both hot and cold. Cut into slices, Schäufele (shoulder of pork) is the ideal keep-fresh pack for small households.
