As a delivery service Seetal we run the webshop with mostly regional products. Since many markets were canceled in the last two years, there were few opportunities for producers and manufacturers, including many family businesses, to sell their products. Therefore we decided to expand our webshop for beeswax cloths with high quality, fresh food from the region and to offer a delivery service. The region of Seetal and its surroundings has many innovative producers, whose products are made with the greatest care, and who are often not known. The delivery service Seetal wants to make these producers better known and act as a distribution channel for family businesses. We offer our customers a wide range of products, delivered fresh to your doorstep by our own delivery service. With every order you make an important contribution to the added value in the region.
