Verbier Is in a Pickle
When Verbier decided to find a new partner, the Valais ski resort thought long and hard about it. And when they heard that a certain HUGO was looking for a holiday destination, they didn't hesitate proposing Verbier and the Val de Bagnes as the perfect destination. HUGO? It is the real Swiss pickle marriage made in heaven.
But why did Hugo, the Swiss emblem of pickle, agree to partner with an international ski resort? Despite all that may seem to separate them, he is a gherin and Verbier is a ski resort, HUGO and Verbier have one thing in common: raclette! That's right! If Bagnes raclette has an international reputation, it would not be complete without local and crunchy gherkins. With a little hindsight, we can say to ourselves that it is logical that these two products of the Swiss nation should be combined, because tasting a 100% Swiss raclette is a la mode.
"With HUGO, the true Swiss pickle, the spotlight is MADE IN SWITZERLAND. Because a successful raclette is Bagnes cheese, Valais wine and now Swiss gherkins and onions. 'We are very proud to associate our HUGO pickle with a destination such as Verbier, which represents so well the Swiss culture, being both known for gastronomy and sporty'; according to Olivier Camille, CEO of Reitzel, HUGO's parent company located in Aigle in the canton of Vaud.
Local and raclette ambassador Eddy Baillifard has already adopted HUGO: "You see, at first, I thought it wasn't going to be easy to learn how to live with a pickle. But the contact was easy and it must be said that it tastes good, when it comes to raclette too. That's why I decided to take him under my wing, until he could fly alone'.
