This is where the meat for our dried meat specialities is accepted, deboned and salted.
The centre of Bündnerfleisch production is in Churwalden, which is 1,230 metres above sea level. Air-drying the meat, the method which our forebears had once used in order to stock up on supplies for the harsh winter months, has in the last few decades developed into a branch of industry with several hundred employees.
We have secured the cooperation of an expert partner in the company Gurtner Montenaro, which is based in Trin. The air drying facility, of a third-generation family business, is situated at an altitude of 1,150 metres above sea level. Their extensive expertise and many years of experience in the production of Grisons dried meat specialities make Gurtner AG a first-class affiliate.
The administration department and butchery as well as the packaging and order picking equipment are all housed in our new state-of-the-art and ecologically friendly building in Landquart. Our enterprise in Landquart is the first production facility of the meat industry in Switzerland that has been certified with the Minergie label.
