From apprentice to Envases Managing Director: Jochen Massa focuses on honesty and respect

As the new Managing Director of Envases Öhringen GmbH, 33-year-old Jochen Massa is responsible for around 700 employees here in Öhringen, most of whom he knows personally.

Traditional brewery from Bavaria: Rhaner is open to new ideas

Traditional brewery from Bavaria: Rhaner is open to new ideas

Beer has been brewed at Rhanerbräu in Upper Palatinate since 1283.
