Thinking about gastronomy and culinary arts in a new way


We embody and communicate these values. We provide a wonderful craft – catering for guests -with a suitably valued place in our society. Particularly, considering that the service as a personal experience, which is the heart of gastronomy, will gain meaning in other branches in the future, wherever people consciously engage with selecting good food as they shop. With the “ICA” and its Foundation, 14 years after its establishment, we are the leading industry network in Germany and are on the right path to achieving this.
