This motto is the key to the success of the Käfer fine food company. What started out as a Munich-based family business has grown into an international enterprise with over 900 employees. The idea of finding first-rate and innovative products from all corners of the world and presenting them to connoisseurs and gourmets is a principle that Käfer has been consistently pursuing since its very beginnings in 1930.
Käfer Party Service
During the course of nearly 50 years, the Käfer Party Service has become a key international market leader within Europe. With the Party Service, virtually anything is possible.

In the year 2012, the Party Service was among the celebrated few to be honoured as "Caterer of the Year", receiving the illustrious "Leaders of the Year Award".

Käfer with its Käfer Wies’n-Schänke has been an established tradition at Munich's historic Oktoberfest since 1971.
