For years, we have contracted directly to bro-kers in the hop industry and still do so today. But the marketplace is getting leaner and we are constantly looking for unique places for distribution of our hops.
Slohops is a brand name for all Slovenian hop varieties, direct hops supply, quality program and sustainable hop pricing. A partnership with us allows a customer to access a pure, wholesome, high quality source of hops with complete traceability from grower to finished product. You can enjoy a risk-free supply chain with complete confidence in the quality control and product safety offered.
Why not be quality assured and source your hops from us, the grower-brewer interface of Slohops.
Hops are the symbol of the Lower Savinja Valley — hence name “The Valley of Green Gold”. Hop cultivation probably began in Eastern Europe around Bohemia, Slovenia and Bavaria before the 8th century, and from there spread to the rest of Europe (Neve, 1991). These are first records ever made of growing hops in Slovenia and it is what makes Slovenian hop grower proud today. Long lasting traditon and experiances with growing of green flower represent the major-ity of peoples’ earnings through the decades of their lifes here.
Today Slovene hopyards cover more than 1500 hectares; majority lie within Savinja valley. Slovenian hops, known also as Styrian hops else in the world are highly esteemed and their quality is also vindicated by the calibre of Slovene beer brewed, of course, using hops from the Savinja valley.
