On January 11, 2024, our building shone in festive splendor as over 150 guests – including customers, suppliers, partners and neighbors – came together to welcome in the new year.
Our authorized signatory Nathalie Dahmann-Harbecke and Peter Gudat from DZ BANK opened the evening with a warm welcome, while our host Bernhard Wolff led us through the evening in his usual relaxed and charming manner.
The stage became a platform for seven of our regional suppliers, who presented their wonderful products and provided the culinary highlight of the evening:
Daniel Dembski came from PREUSSEN QUELLE and brought the stage water, TERRA Naturkost was represented by Robert Klinge and presented the plate with ceviche from kohlrabi from our kitchen, Marco Kehle from TRANSGOURMET Ursprung was there to explain the AXICA signature plate with bee sting from goat’s cheese. Our main course was very well received by the guests: Quinoa and leek balls on parsnip puree and deep-fried kale. GRAGGER – that’s bread was represented by Marc Ribbeck and a hearty bread station. We had our homemade spreads to match. HAVELLAND Express with Ewald Schmunk was at the start with the climate-positive Original Beans chocolate for our chocolate mousse with blood orange. Our dear Ingo Simon from Sekt- und Weingut Gebr. Simon from the Moselle took the stage to toast the New Year.
Later in the evening, we showed a few impressions for the 25th anniversary of the AXICA in a short video preview.
The highlight of the evening was definitely the relaxed exchange over good food and stimulating conversations. The good mood, the laughter and the positive vibes show that we are ready to start another successful year together.
A big thank you to everyone who shared this special evening with us. May 2024 be just as fresh and inspiring as our start to the new year together!
