Visit to Askim Frukt og Bærpresseri (Askim Fruit and Berry Press)

October 19, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm


The Special Events Committee has the pleasure of inviting Forum members to a guided tour of Askim Fruit and Berry Press. Since 1936, the company has produced juice from apples, berries, fruit and vegetables and prepared traditional products enjoyed by many generations. The company follows the horticultural seasons.  In June, rhubarb arrives at the press. August is berry season, and juice, jams and jellies are made then. In September, apples are in focus. The press still uses the bottles and jars designed by Moss Glassworks in 1967. Many people have fond childhood memories of trips to Askim Frukt og Bærpresseri.

Our guide will be Astrid Lier Rømuld, Manager. After her introduction to the company and its operations, we will be served apple waffles in the factory shop – and we will have plenty of time to buy the delicious goodies that are for sale. For the sporty, we recommend a swim in the very nice Østfoldbadet.
