Joint development of new successful products

For us, contract manufacturing means the utmost attention and care for your brand. We use our extensive expertise to develop products with you that do complete justice to your brand. To achieve this, we have the diverse product line portfolio of DMK at our disposal: Dairy products, cheese, baby food, ice cream, ingredients and healthcare products..

Innovative technology means that we are able to fulfil practically every single one of your requests. This also applies to non-milk products with varying viscosity.
