Tasty apricots in summer, prize mangalica sausages in winter – find bright artisanal treats online at Grøenk Deli

Premium products, rare delicacies, tasty mangalica pork, artisanal dairy delights, goats’ cheeses, hams, salamis and sausages, organic wines, dry goods, plus organic fruit and vegetables all in one place – welcome to Grøenk Deli!

Over the course of recent months, we have witnessed the proliferation of gastronomy and retail online. Grøenk Deli started out this March with fruit and vegetable delivery, and then became an online delicatessen – much to the delight of fans of artisanal wares. They include any number of special ingredients and delicacies in their portfolio, available for order from many parts of Hungary.

Grøenk Deli makes a powerful case for any firm to change its image and start to build a new profile as a result of the pandemic. The company, for many years a supplier to restaurants, set up their webshop in six days in mid-March and introduced delivery to residential homes.

They have undergone tremendous development in the last eight months, their portfolio now including more than 400 products – and they are also planning to launch their own. In spring, a delicatessen will open by Lake Velence where, in addition to the many delicacies already available, specialty coffee, baked goods from Marmorstein and freshly prepared food, all deservedly popular in Budapest, will also be on offer.

As a duo, the founders of Grøenk Deli, Emese and Balázs, together solve all the challenges arising from the business. The range of quality they offer has been developed thanks to precise selection and is constantly expanding in response to emerging customer needs.

They are proud of their specialities such as the colourful tomatoes, curly kale and baby beets from small-batch producers in Csongrád county, or the fresh tulips that Balázs’ mother grows in her own garden in Balástya.

They also love products by Tokaj Vicinitas Mangalica, the Csíz Cheese Workshop, Etyek Goats’ Cheese Manufactory and GMO-free Martontej dairy products. They keep in touch with their customers in person – they can reach Emese all day or if you call the company number, Balázs answers. Customer feedback is especially important – as they say themselves, as they learn a lot from it.

Challenges and opportunities

“We have had a lot of difficulties we have to overcome to this day. When I tell my friends about it, they don’t even believe what situations we’re in. Nevertheless, we love doing this, and the crisis – even if it involves great challenges and a lot of work – has given us a huge opportunity that we hope will help us to grow,” says Emese.

Take a look at their online marketplace (Hungarian-only) to pack your baskets full of producers’ delicacies or put together festive gift baskets!
