You can only make history when you have a long history behind you.


A group of visionary farmers founded the Eferding Agricultural Cooperative – the predecessor of today’s efko.


Fresh fruit and vegetables were preserved with natural means for the first time – the legendary efko gherkins are launched on the market.


In the 1960s and 70s, the product range was continuously expanded and true pickled vegetable classics were created.


Production methods were continuously improved and great new products with ever more sophisticated recipes followed. In 1983, efko launched its now classic fine mayonnaise salads.


In the summer of 2005 efko was awarded the international IFS quality certificate and has been working according to its strict requirements ever since, ensuring the highest, internationally acknowledged quality standards.


Today, efko processes and produces the finest preserves from some 70 fruit and vegetable varieties. More than 110,000 tons of produce are made into finest preserves every year, which makes efko the most important pickled vegetable producer in Austria.
