Bio-Pioneer Ammer

A sustainable and innovative beer tent at the Oktoberfest

The chicken and duck roastery Ammer is an absolute pioneer in organic products on the Oktoberfest. Now the small Wiesnzelt is expanding its holistic concept.

Tradition meets young startups

Tradition combined with innovation - this is what many companies claim about themselves, but at Ammer this is actually implemented consistently. You could see that when the concept for Oktoberfest 2019 was recently presented.

The organic vegetables are fermented with the help of a young start-up so that the nutrients are retained for even longer. With the new Dishtracker software, the workflows in the tent are to be further optimised. In addition, the oldest chicken and duck roaster in the world is also working with the Foodsharing initiative to produce less food waste.

It all started with this change

There is also a cooperation with Regenbogen Arbeit, whose team helps people with mental disabilities and the long-term unemployed to find a suitable job.

You can look forward to the delicious Bio-Hendl again during the Oktoberfest, because that's where it all started 20 years ago. "The conversion to Bio-Hendl in 1999 was a life decision that still has an effect on all areas today," says Wiesnwirt Josef Schmidbauer.
