Strangeness production plays a crucial role in the understanding of the formation and the evolution of a fireball created in heavy-ion collisions. To better understand the effects of the collectivity and their interplay with the particle production mechanisms it is also necessary to study pp and p–Pb collisions. We report the measurements of the production of KS0 mesons and Λ, Ξ and Ω hyperons with the ALICE detector at the LHC energy √s = 13 TeV for minimum bias pp collisions. The results include Λ∕KS0 spectra ratio, pT-differential yields, ⟨pT⟩ and particle yield ratios compared to the measurements at lower energies. The results showcase the excellent tracking capabilities of the ALICE detector and of the particle identification methods using the topology of weakly decaying hadrons and serve as the support for the multiplicity dependent measurements.
