The Divine right to hospitality.
Hospitium Greek: ξενία, xenia, προξενία) is the ancient Greco-Roman concept of hospitality as a divine right of the guest and a divine duty of the host. Similar or broadly equivalent customs were and are also known in other cultures, though not always by that name. Among the Greeks and Romans, Hospitium was of a twofold character: private and public
While 2020 was a particularly challenging and unpredictable year, it gave us the opportunity to understand who we are and what we want to represent. It was the year that drove our ambitions as people even more strongly than before, it was the year a concept was born, to create an interactive showroom.
Hospitium a Melbourne based brand, inspired by our culinary culture and focused on the everyday meaning of true hospitality, was developed to provide a contemporary platform to service the food and beverage industry.
