WE'VE ALWAYS BEEN FARSIGHTED – NOT JUST BECAUSE OF OUR ORIGINS.

We're from the North German Plains, and they're as flat as a pancake. But it does give you wide horizons. So we're farsighted by nature – as over 125 years of success prove:

 

1885: Seven farmers form one of North Germany's first dairy cooperatives in Rastede.

 

1948: Numerous Ammerland dairies move into cheese production – with great success.

 

1956: The launch of the so-called "Green Plans" boosts the modernisation process in German agriculture and numerous technical innovations are introduced in Ammerland dairies and on our suppliers' farms.
