Other Ranks Association Tour in Mönchengladbach.
Brunssum, Netherlands – On 30th March the JFC Brunssum Other Ranks Association (ORA) organized a visit to Oettinger Brewery in Monchengladbach, Germany.
The ORA is always looking for opportunities to conduct cohesion activities in order to reinforce the unity of the NCO community. Twenty-four participants from all nations represented at JFC Brunssum, as well as one NATO Civilian, attended the event. The serial started with presentations given by Mr Meinolf SAURE, the guide of the day, and Mr Moritz Krech, the Brew Master.
The second part of the visit was a walk through the entire brewerry, from laboratories to production. The complexity of the process was immense and the professionalism observed was eye-opening. Huge effort is expended in the research, production, logistic effort that is all geared to customer satisfaction.
Oettinger Brewery has a long history that is founded upon respect of the German purity law of 1516. Today, it produces a range of 29 different products that, since 2015, are produced under a non-genetically modified label. The brewery produces 9,4 million hectoliters of beer per year and has a fleet of 180 trucks to deliver products all over Germany. Oettinger deliver beer to more than 80 countries worldwilde.
The visit was concluded with an exchange of gifts and a small lunch and a beer tasting - a treat enjoyed by all.
