There is something very special about the village of Flüh. Not only is it a small exclave of the canton of Solothurn in the heart of the Basel countryside, but it is also home to Maurer Speck, one of Switzerland's preeminent producers of traditional handmade bacon. For 40 years, Ernst H. Maurer has been at the helm of the family firm, which was founded by his father in 1968. Thanks to his leadership, the company's enduring respect for tradition and the commitment and skills of its workforce, Maurer Speck has risen to become Switzerland's leading bacon producer. Over the decades, Maurer Speck has forged successful business relationships with a host of customers in the retail sector and has made a name for itself as a pioneer in its field.

The Natura Bündner Fleischtrocknerei is the manufacturer of dried meat specialties for the Micarna Group. The company has produced Bündnerfleisch, Bündner raw ham, coppa and raw bacon according to traditional recipes for more than 30 years in a small, modern production plant in Tinizong. In 2009, the family-run business was transferred to the Buisness Untit Meat and became part of the Micarna Group. The interplay between selected raw materials, traditional recipes and expert processing provides the basis for the renowned premium product from the heart of Graubünden. The dried meat specialties are salted in Tinizong and then dried for several months in rooms specially outfitted for this purpose. During the drying process the meat loses nearly half its original weight while receiving its unmistakable taste at the same time. Since 2010, Natura specialties can be purchased directly in Tinizong in a small production shop.
For 75 years, Schär Fleischspezialitäten has produced a wide range of meat and sausage specialties in the Säntis / Lake Constance region, and has been part of the Micarna Group since 2014. As a specialty producer, Schär is in charge of products such as raw meat sausage (Mostbröckli) and dried meat sausage (Pantli), oven-baked and cured ham, as well as its famous meatloaf baked in a wood-fired oven, all of which are enjoyed far beyond the region. The regional anchoring of Schär Fleischspezialitäten guarantees not only proximity and hence a close relationship to their suppliers, but also short transport routes. Each product can thereby be seamlessly traced back at any time. The quality of the raw material, sustainable relationships to Swiss agriculture and the detailed production know-how play a crucial role, particularly in the specialty segment. A cutting-edge facility at the production site in Thal, St. Gallen, and around 70 trained specialists ensure the quality of these premium products.
