From Farm
to Fork

The awareness and interest in what we eat has never been greater than it is today. We very much welcome this trend and would be happy to provide you with information about the origin and processing of the food in our restaurants. When putting together their menu, all of the east Group's restaurants use ingredients that are as typical of the region and of the best quality as possible. Seasonal availability of food also plays an important role, long transport routes are avoided if possible. All kitchen teams, kitchen management and purchasing departments work closely with our suppliers and producers in order to achieve a maximum of choice, taste and sustainability.


In our own production kitchen, the east manufactory in Sternschanze, we produce our own basic products such as stocks and sauces in large quantities and deliver them to our factories. Central production ensures consistent quality, relieves kitchen teams and minimizes transport routes.


If you have any questions about products or food, our service staff will be happy to answer your questions at any time.

We source our food from the following suppliers and producers:

From the sea & the river

The traditional company Hummer Pedersen in Hamburg supplies us daily with exquisite fresh fish and whole tuna for processing into sushi and sashimi. “All imports are subject to strict selection. Quality and purity come first. Our many years of experience pays off particularly in the species-appropriate keeping and preparation.”

-Hummer Pedersen

Salads & Herbs

The Keltenhof, the most innovative and modern salad manufacturer in Germany, is responsible for our salads. "We are aware of our responsibility to the environment and rely on the sustainable use of resources."
