PLEASURE

of enjoyment

Is it possible to philosophize about ham? It does not seem so at first glance. Nevertheless, we have dedicated our web page to what is close to the heart of many: the good life. The pleasure of enjoyment simply forms part of it – and this is exactly our area of our expertise as ham makers in the fourth generation.
We cordially invite you to come with us on a little tour through Berger’s world of ham. It is a world where time has not stood still, even though we have been around for more than 125 years.
It is our world, and this is where we work day after day on creating small things for you to enjoy:
the finest ham of the best Austrian quality. For the enjoyment of the good things.

FAMILY

of ham makers

Once upon a time, there was a tranquil village in Lower Austria, which was called Sieghartskirchen. It was still the time of the rule of Emperor Franz Josef when, far away from the big city, a fresh entrepreneurial spirit started to stir. A 16-year-old lad wanted to venture his luck and went off to Vienna as cattle trader. The name of the young man was Michael Berger, and when he later returned to his home village as qualified master butcher, he founded a family business whose passion for ham lives on to this day. What sounds like a fairy tale most certainly has not always been one, but nevertheless turned into a story of success of our family, which we continue to write with our heart and soul to this day. « About us »

GOOD HAM

comes from

As far as good food is concerned, mindful consumers today also want to know where it comes from. At Berger, the answer is very simple: it comes from Sieghartskirchen and thus from the very town in the Tullnerfeld in Lower Austria where our family has deep roots for generations. This is where we live. This is where we work. And this is where our fine, hand-made ham specialities of the highest quality are made to this day.
« About us »

Quality, as we understand it, is not only measured by the taste experience, but also by where a product comes from and how it is made. Rudolf Berger
