On May 18, EKONID once again successfully hosted the Deutches Spargelessen or White Asparagus Dinner at the Bali Room of Hotel Indonesia Kempinski for its partners, friends and partner institutions, in commemorating this traditional German feast at home away from home.

The Deutches Spargelessen is especially important for the German community in Indonesia. During the German Spergalsaison or Spargelzeit (asparagus season), the vegetable is treated as a festive food, with mothers and chefsserving their own special take on this fine produce.

In his opening speech, EKONID Managing Director Mr. Jan Rönnfeld welcomed the evening’s guests and gave thanks especially to DB Schenker, the German logistic company, that have assisted in importing the 440kg of white asparagus cooked and served for the dinner part of the event.

He also expressed his gratitude to the sponsors of the event, namely Mercedes-Benz, Lufthansa, The Oberoi Bali, Cikarang DryPort, Bayer Indonesia, ThyssenKrupp, Heineken dan Natya Hotel Kuta in Bali, and Hotel Indonesia Kempinski for all their support in making the night a success.
