HVG: We deliver the natural product hops from Germany

In the Bavarian town of Wolnzach—at the heart of the Hallertau hop-growing region—is where HVG Hopfenverwertungsgenossenschaft e.G. has its head office. The marketing association was founded in 1953 in the Hallertau region, and the growers from the Tettnang and Elbe-Saale regions have been members since 2001. This led to the world’s largest consolidation of hop growers within a cooperative. HVG pools the activities of the Hop Growers Associations of Hallertau e.V. (PGI Hallertau Hops), Elbe-Saale e.V. (PGI Elbe-Saale Hops), Tettnang e.V. (PGI Tettnang Hops), and the HVG Spalt (PDO Spalt Hops). They have joined forces, representing hops from German growing regions, to establish an information and sales promotion program for the European protected designations PDO and PGI.

The goal is to provide information about the meaning of the Community regulations and the high value of the EU-protected Community products. HVG guarantees the international brewing industry the reliability of supply for German hops of the highest quality and diversity. The oldest marketing cooperative for hop growing has become a global player within a few decades. Today, breweries from more than 100 countries on all continents purchase German hops directly from the grower through HVG—with excellent natural quality and processing methods as well as at fair conditions.
