Entrepreneurial, fair and innovative – these are the DMK Group’s core values.  They also apply in compliance with rules and regulations. We always act responsibly, strategically and sustainably and thereby secure the future of our company.

What compliance means to us.

As an international dairy company, the DMK Group is committed to complying with a wealth of laws and regulations. Any infringement of these legal requirements can have serious consequences. Compliance measures are intended to help make it easier to adhere to rules, thus making it possible to avert damage and actively prevent infringements.

We follow a clear code.

In order to help our employees protect their own interests and those of the DMK Group, we have developed our own code of conduct. This is supplemented by internal guidelines in order to make it easier to comply with legal provisions.

DMK's whistleblower system and protection of whistleblowers

If we want to remain true to our values and rules, we cannot simply accept misconduct. For this reason, employees can submit anonymous reports via a digital reporting platform at sicher-melden.de and an ombudsman who is sworn to secrecy. The procedure for submitting reports is governed by rules of procedure. Business partners also have the opportunity to submit reports via these reporting channels, for example to draw attention to human rights or environmental risks or violations in their own business area and in the supply chain. The DMK Group protects whistleblowers from any kind of discrimination or penalisation.

The Whistleblower Protection Act also provides for the possibility of external reporting. For this purpose, the federal government has set up an external reporting centre at the Federal Office of Justice (BfJ). Information on the legal scope of application, the possible reporting channels and the reporting procedure can be obtained directly from the federal government's external reporting centre.
