The digital business model of OTTO GOURMET
Prof. Dr. Gunter Dueck
Author, mathematician, philosopher, former IBM Chief Technologist
Gunter Dueck, born 1951, studied mathematics and business administration. After he obtained his doctorate in mathematics in 1977, he was appointed to a professorship in mathematics at the University of Bielefeld in 1981.

He is a member of the American engineers association IEEE, of the German Informatics Society as well as a Corresponding Member of the Göttingen Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
Founder & Managing Director of OTTO GOURMET
Wolfgang Otto is the “face” of OTTO GOURMET. He graduated in business administration, and is now one of the leading meat experts in Germany. He is also a speaker of the "Jeunes Restaurateurs" academy, author, and TV expert. In 2008, he was the German representative at the European Meat Forum in Ireland. His passion for meat and his extremely high demands on product quality are the reasons why he continually searches for the best products - around the world. Whether Wagyu Kobe Style Beef - the most expensive beef in the world - from the US, pork from Spanish Pata Negra pigs with its distinctive natural and nutty taste, or the perfect Bresse chicken from Mieral in France: only the best is good enough, as “good food always begins with a good product”.
