Food labelling

Dear guests,
in order to offer you comprehensive information about our dishes, we label 14 main allergens and further main ingredients. At this, we excercise the greatest care.
The specifications are based on the information of our producers and suppliers. That is why we cannot rule out completely that there are other than the labelled substances in our dishes. Due to the manufacturing processes at our canteen kitchens it is unavoidable that single components and substances are mixed,which might lead to a cross-contamination.
