Our Team

vomFASS quickly grew throughout Europe as family run franchises opened their shops, continuing the family legacy and tradition. vomFASS offers only products of the highest quality, a unique tasting experience with unparalleled customer service. Our exquisite products are produced by artisans from around the globe who have passed down the highest quality growing and production techniques from one generation to the next. It is this symbiotic relationship between the vomFASS family and the families of our producers that has evolved into one of the most sought-after franchises in the world.
