Speyer & Grund GmbH & Co. KG: The specialist for acidifiers

Founded over 150 years ago Speyer & Grund is Germany’s oldest and most important specialist in culinary concentrated vinegar. The company’s success is based on its most important product: SURIG Essig-Essenz (vinegar essence). In its typical bottle featuring a “waist” and with yellow cap, SURIG can be found on the shelves of food retailers across Germany.

Since many generations vinegar essence from Speyer & Grund has been used for cooking as well as cleaning, and its versatility justifies calling it an allround genius. Its pure and authentic acidic taste provides many dishes with a hint of freshness. SURIG can be used to create delicious and delicate vinegars, salad dressings, chutneys and dips.

But the food product has also many talents in household applications. Vinegar essence, by nature, has strong descaling and cleaning properties and is therefore a cheap and environmentally friendly descaling agent.

Another classic from Speyer & Grund is the popular convenient-lemon CITROVIN that is also available in organic quality. The latest products include SURIG Citro-Essenz, the lemon version
of vinegar essence, and Willis Chili Peppersauce, a spicy pepper sauce.
