In addition to their cultural and gastronomic significance –which has historic and symbolic aspects – Hungarian food products from fattened geese are also important for the national economy. According to the historical record and ethnographic research, the country’s traditions in this area of agriculture and gastronomy stretch back several centuries. Products from free-range geese fattened on corn-based feed are gastronomic treasures, which can only be produced with labour, care, expertise and conscientious animal husbandry.
