Quality through passion

Käfer is a leading premium brand with a well-established world-wide reputation for high quality gourmet products and services. Our philosophy: we don't chase new market trends, but rather use the expectations of our customers to define our markets.

In business in Switzerland since November 2011

Käfer Schweiz AG has taken on overall responsibility for catering operations at the newly designed fairgrounds of Messe Basel, with noticeable effect. The modernisation of Messe Basel is progressing at full speed, thanks to a redesign by world renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron. The complex, completed in February 2013, will re-position Basel as attractive, state-of-the-art and forward-looking venue for major trade fairs in the heart of Europe.

In the midst of these radical renovations, Käfer has catered very successfully for the most important fairs in Basel during the past year. These include IGEHO, SWISSBAU, BASELWORLD, ART Basel and Basel Tattoo. Current projects will focus on planning for BASELWORLD 2013 and ART Basel.

Set for expansion

Käfer's dedication to establishing its brand in Basel can be seen in the commitment of the entire team and also in terms of future investment plans. An upcoming project is the conceptual planning and finalisation of the new fairground restaurants in Hall 1, as well as the new à la carte restaurant "Käfer Stube - cuisine des alpes" scheduled to open in September 2013 at the City Lounge at the Messeplatz. Visitors of BASELWORLD and ART Basel will have the opportunity to to enjoy the the restaurant in a light version in form of a pop-up concept. The restaurant will offer the opportunity to the public of Basel and its international guests to enjoy the culinary spirit of Käfer all year long.

In addition, Käfer's creative team is already committed to the intensive planning process for BASELWORLD: you can browse the menu of culinary packages and experiences here:
