Expansion of foodservice

In addition, we warmly welcome the fully taken over and highly motivated team, with which we will gain additional extensive food competence."

Long-term contracts

The contracts with the Austrian Federal Railways (Österreichische Bundesbahnen - ÖBB) are long-term and provide potential for enhanced cooperation in the future.
