GF has owned the listed convent Klostergut Paradies in Schlatt, Thurgau, since 1918. At one time, the property was run as a farm to provide food for GF employees. With its stunning location on the banks of the Rhine, the convent building nowadays serves as a modern training center and attractive venue for special events. GF will be organizing a range of activities to celebrate the 100th anniversary in 2018.
