Meandering through their spectacular showroom, engaging with Bergner’s young inspiring designers and being immersed in the Bergner Group ever expanding ecosystem, i find myself humbled by the vision of executive chairman, Janek, and the brands ability to reach at global scale but with local heart in its communities. Among many many examples of the Bergner Groups ESG web is its famous Cook & Chef Institute. This, in its self, is world class but ‘The Cook & Chef Institute’ is a Foundation comprised of figures from the world of international haute cuisine and BERGNER who have come together to share strategic thinking about cooking, communities and technological innovation in kitchenware.

What i can say, with complete confidence, is watch this space with The Bergner Group!

A special thank you to Janek, Alberto, Carmen, Raul, Maria, Berta, Fernando and Team Bergner for the kind welcome and immersive brand experience in Zaragoza, Spain HQ. Look forward to my next visit for sure.
