QUALITY, EFFICIENCY AND TECHNOLOGY
Hopsteiner processes hops in several locations around the world. Our plants are ISO certified and continuously updated so that we maintain our leading position in quality, efficiency and technology. Hopsteiner is also a full-service provider of hops – from the time-honored traditional products to the most advanced downstream products.
Hopsteiner offers a broad palette of modern options for the precise dosing of hops for brewing and beyond. Our conventional hop products are based on the natural properties of raw hops, and can be processed into two different types of pellets: Type 90 and Type 45. Hops can also be extracted (using either CO2 or Ethanol as solvents) to provide an extract that contains the desirable properties found in leaf hops.
Hop pellets are much easier to store than whole hops, since an equivalent quantity of pellets is only 20-25 percent of the volume of whole hops. Hopsteiner pellets are packed in proprietary foil pouches that protect the contents from light and oxygen. These pouches are then placed in heavy-duty cardboard boxes for additional protection. They are labeled with QR codes that contain the order’s analytical data and other customer-specific information, which can be accessed using smartphones or QR readers.
