Swiss House Shop Ltd.                                              Our Suppliers

 

 

At Swiss House Shop Ltd. we not only strive to bring you the best quality products from Switzerland but continuously seek valuable new products from select suppliers for our portfolio to enhance your shopping experience with us.

 

Supplier1

 

Our suppliers are mostly small- to medium-sized Swiss registered companies producing a vast range of products mainly for the Swiss market. Our requirements for the products to be listed in our shop are not only the companies being from Switzerland but that also the manufacturing of products takes place in Switzerland. We focus mostly on products and goods that use also Swiss ingredients. Having said that globalization has also set foot in our small country and the pressure on pricing, due to high production costs in Switzerland has also been a factor for many Swiss entities to procure ingredients, or partly manufacture some products abroad.

 

It must be noted that Switzerland lacks an abundance of natural resources, thus in the course of the past few hundred years, Swiss traders have set out to the world to procure goods and products from near and far to be incorporated into our well-reputable products. Also climatic reasons inhibit the local, Swiss production of certain ingredients for products.

 

Switzerland has some of the world's most stringent laws and regulations that producers and manufacturers must adhere to. The Swiss government is very keen to keep to our world-class, and high quality standards and in supporting smaller Swiss producers and manufacturers.

 

                                                                                           SwissMade

 

Due to ever growing global demand for safe, clean and healthy products from Switzerland, many Swiss entities have elected to produce some of their products abroad in countries where demand is high or potentials on the rise. There are a vast number of Swiss products that are not manufactured any longer in Switzerland and manufacturing has reached also places in Asia.

 

We at Swiss House Shop Ltd. do not carry such products in our portfolio. We support the “Swissness” laws (Swiss flag on the product) that have come into effect on January 1, 2017, as implemented by the Swiss government and support our suppliers to have a reach also in Asia thru our portal. We do however have some exceptions in our portfolio, that include some products that are being produced or manufactured in part (i.e. machine parts, etc.), or in its entirety outside the borders of Switzerland in our portfolio. Those products are manufactured in the European Union, and must be wholly-owned subsidiaries of our suppliers. Such products are furthermore clearly marked in our website and on the product package.

Of particular focus to Swiss House Shop are also the ingredients used in our F&B range of products. Switzerland is world-renown for its chocolates but we do not produce cocoa in Switzerland. Thus we also select suppliers for a vast range of products that farm or procure Swiss grown ingredients, or use only a select supplier base for their ingredients that produce under the norms of our Swiss suppliers in a conscious and sustainable manner.

 

Are you interested in a partnership with Swiss House Shop Ltd? 

If your company philosophy and goals are in line with the above criteria and if you seek a partnership with a Swiss-managed company for the distribution of your products in Asia please do not hesitate to contact our Supply Chain Manager, Mr. U. Zubler in Switzerland Email: ulrico.zubler[at]swisshouse-shop.com to discuss a potential partnership.

Meinrad C. Perler, born in 1937 and son of a farmer from the Canton Fribourg, came to the Canton Ticino after his economics study in London and following a career at Credit Suisse as Bank Director. In 1981 he decided to dedicate the rest of his life to the wine-making trade, and purchased the “Tenimento dellOr”. 11 hectares of vines on a hill in Arzo, perfectly exposed to the sun. In 1994 Mr. Perler pressed his first 100%-Merlot wine, which right away won the gold medal in the “Aosta am Berg” contest and received the “Weinwisser” award at the Expovina exhibition in Zurich from the wine-experts and wine-lovers’ journal.

The estate, mentioned in scripts from the 1800s give account of an important vinery in the region, was brought back to its original utilization. Following the acquisition the re-planting of the grapes started, at first in the traditional method of the region. Soon the passion of the owner, for experimentation and innovation set foot in the winery. Credits in achieving the visions, are in large to be attributed to Mr. Rainer Zierock, a German scientist and agronomist. He recognized the potential of the vineyard and over the years accomplished highest merits in the grape cultivation but also in the cellar as master of the assemblage. A big step forward was also the purchase of the “La Prella” vineyard in 2002, a district in Mendrisio.

The grapes and the wine-making adheres to natural methods as far as possible and respect to nature. A large part of the production and almost all specialties are processed in Barrique barrels. In 1989 a wine cellar was purchased under the hills of Mount Generoso for the maceration of select Barrique-wines. Big investments are done in research. 3 gardens on the estate hold some 600 different grape varieties for experimentation purposes.

 Gottlieber Spezialitäten AG                                              Gottlieber

 

Gottlieber1


Tradition since 1928

The romantic Swiss village of Gottlieben was founded in 1251. One of its most famous inhabitants was Queen Hortense Bonaparte, when she lived at nearby Schloss Arenenberg from 1817 to 1837. Therefore, her famous son, the later emperor of France Napoleon III, also became an aficionado of the mouth-watering Gottlieber Wafer rolls.

It all began in 1928 in a picturesque house by the water when Elisabeth Wegeli was introduced to the art of baking Hüppen by her neighbour. Many lovers of chocolates and other delicacies consider Gottlieber Hüppen and Gottlieber products to be the tastiest tidbits available. Gottlieber Hüppen are even part of Switzerland's culinary heritage.

Quality and Pleasure
Gottlieber's confectionery skills, known far beyond Switzerland, are maintained and continuously perfected by the owner-operated company. For this reason, the company does not compromise on matters of quality and pleasure. Gottlieber Spezialitäten AG is the oldest, best-known and most-renowned producer of Hüppen in Switzerland.

Swiss Craft
At the family-owned Swiss company, located in Gottlieben, directly on the idyllic branch of Lake Constance which forms part of the Rhine, the delicate warm crepes are still individually-baked and individually-rolled like fine Havana cigars. This is done carefully and precisely, as if by hand. The Gottlieber Hüppen are then individually filled with either gently-melting gourmet creams or Swiss chocolate and individually packaged by hand. All of our fillings, for which we use only the best ingredients, are created and produced in Gottlieben. Many of them have received top awards.

Of course, our products are always inspected according to strict standards of quality (according to the HACCP principle). Our facility is ISO 9001:2008 and IFS (International Food Standard) certified.

Our clients, both in this country and abroad, appreciate our gourmet fillings and chocolates produced using long-held traditional recipes, our passionate maintenance of tradition and our high standards of quality.

 

Honig – P. Frehner                                                                    Honig

 

Honig1

 

In Frehner’s garden there is always buzzing from the thousands of bees heading out from the beehives to the untouched nature, from where they return with puffy back legs full of orange pollen, to greet each other with ecstatic dances. In the center of the action, Mr. Alex Frehner, with a big smile on his face.

The man from eastern Switzerland has been a hobby apiarist for over 60 years and he has a keen eye for the little bees like no-one else. His son Peter was literally born into the trade. 12 years ago he took over the beehives from his father. Continuous education is part of the hobby to master the environmental challenges also in Switzerland, particularly from the farming sector.

Whereas in other countries beekeeping has been industrialized, the passionate hobby beekeepers of Switzerland succeed with love for their profession. The issue is that they might focus too much on the honey and not the sales and distribution of the honey. The millions of bees and the hundreds of kilograms of honey produced each year, inspired Peter Frehner to establish “Honig.ch”. This allowed him to also experiment with new products, such as honey-wine or truffle-honey creations. Also other local beekeepers profit from Mr. Frehner now by using their facilities in Switzerland. Important is that he knows where the honey comes from and how it is treated. This is important to keep the honey pure. There is nothing added, nothing homogenized. Each honey has its distinct finger-print – a combination from the time of harvest and the region of provenance. This is what makes each jar of Frehner honey unique, and the indulgence literally one-of-a-kind with every jar.

Like father, like son. In good family tradition the son Hans-Jörg also learned the shoe-making craft and orthopedist trade. In 2000, together with his wife Yvonne, he took over the saddlery from his father Titus. Since then a lot has changed in the workshop.

As a responsible enterprise Karlen Swiss employs around 10 local workers in the atelier. A truly great team of women, who carry-on and live the company philosophy. Here the word “TEAM” has a unique meaning, then as soon as one enters the “holy” manufacturing halls, one can literally sense the harmony. Each production step really happens hand-in-hand. Be that thru family-relationship or friendship between employees, everything happens together, the smiling, the crafting, and the creating.

Oswald has been seasoning and spicing up Switzerland for 60 years

Oswald has specialized in seasonings and bouillons for over 60 years. Even at an early age, company founder Meinrad Oswald was fascinated by raw ingredients from all over the world. His great passion was to discover unique spices. As a result, his blends of spices and seasonings clearly stand out in their aroma and taste from conventional mixes. Right up to today, Oswald's high quality products have always impressed customers with their excellent flavors and versatility in the kitchen.

From a one-man enterprise to a flourishing company - From a young age, Meinrad Oswald was fascinated by the raw materials produced in faraway lands. Good taste was his passion, and for this reason at the age of just 20 he bought a small coffee roasting business in Zurich. He sold his products directly to his customers without retail intermediaries. This personal customer contact was his recipe for success.

In addition to coffee roasting, Meinrad Oswald also devoted a great deal of attention towards the discovery of unique spices. This resulted in spice blends, bouillons and sauces which, to this day, have aromas and flavors that set them well apart from conventional mixtures. “Oswald’s find cuisine” was born. The one-man enterprise rapidly developed into a successful company with its own retail outlets and employees who visited and advised customers at home. From the earliest days, Oswald exemplified what marketing experts today call “customer proximity”. Home visits, customer discussions, listening attentively, divining wishes, developing and offering products on the basis of this – he greatly enjoyed all these things.

Swiss premium products since 1951 - Oswald uses high-quality, carefully selected raw materials. These are processed with painstaking care at the production site in Steinhausen/Canton of Zug. Sophisticated compositions with carefully balanced spices or other ingredients ensure failsafe cooking results coupled with personal culinary flair. This is precisely what characterizes our bouillons, spices, desserts and coffee: outstanding flavor!

The Classic from the Canton Glarus

Of course, we are proud to be sending so many products from Netstal all over the world. Many of our creations have long become modern classics. Others have had a pioneering function and coined new product categories, for example our plastic drinks bottle case (1963) or our invention, the Raclette oven, which started a new trend (1971). Many other Stöckli brands, too, are now firmly established.

The beginnings - In 1874, master Alfred Stöckli and his two assistants produce the first Stöckli products in a workshop in Uznach: paraffin lamps, burners, ash trays and metal pan lids. The small enterprise quickly develops into a flourishing company. In order to utilize hydraulic power, the production is moved to Netstal. The cookware, serving utensils and ornaments become known under the name «Stöckli copper».

Later, the range is extended to include air humidifiers, fondue burners and Raclette ovens.

Today we offer our clients innovative products and services that meet their needs. The focus of our efforts is customer satisfaction, which is the foundation of our corporate success. Our products have a high level of quality, which is protected by a certified quality management system (ISO 9001:2015 und ISO 14001:2015).

Our high quality objectives can only be achieved with the help of our certified employees. We therefore actively and continuously support them in their private and professional development.

In order to remain competitive in the metal as well as the plastics industry, the management makes a visionary decision:. In early 1997, the company was divided into two firms: the plastics company A. + J. Stöckli AG and Stöckli Metall AG. Today, more than 130 years after its beginnings as a workshop, A. & J. Stöckli AG impresses as a modern company in plastics production and trade. A company with a promising future.

Würzmeister                                                                                 Wuerzmeister

 

Wuerzmeister1

 

Würzmeister was founded on the passions of Yves for cooking and spices. In his early years he learned the cooking trade and conjured excellent meals with much enthusiasm for his family and friends. A medieval recipe given to him by his grandmother finally gave him the reason to start creating his own spice mixtures that would allow him to easier transport all the ingredients.

His life took an abrupt turn when at the end of his apprenticeship he had a tragic accident that forced him to rehabilitate in clinics and where he was losing his passions.

Together they found a way, how Yves could live his talents and gain back the pleasure of life. It didn’t take long to come up with the idea of the spices, at first just as a hobby but soon and due to high demand, the hobby transformed to a profession for Tania and Yves – the birth of Würzmeister

The story of Ives shall also inspire others – hope and passion to success

Quality is our first priority. In order not to overheat the spices, we employ only small grinders. Each mixture is carefully and thoroughly mixed by hand in advance. Whenever possible we purchase raw-materials in their natural form and grind them ourselves. Thru the gentle grinding process we ensure a high amount of ethereal oils are preserved in the spices, which leads to a more intense aroma.

We produce relatively small quantities of spices to ensure that our customers can enjoy freshly make mixtures. This means more efforts on our side, which we accept as our promise to provide an aromatic experience in our products.

The spices of Würzmeister are guaranteed free of any artificial ingredients, such as flavor enhances, preservatives or similar and are all gluten-free. To ensure that persons with allergies are well informed all our products have the full allergen listing. Meanwhile many products of Würzmeister are from bio-approved farming producers.
