Innovative solutions, top quality – DMK shapes the future of cheese for professionals


We are the largest dairy cooperative in Germany. And by tradition and passion, we stand for first-class cheese products. Our in-depth expertise, combined with valuable raw ingredients and the latest technology, makes us a prominent supplier of really good cheese. From sliceable cheese to mozzarella, we offer a diversity of branded assortments and customised solutions for retailers and industry.

Tradition and innovation in harmony.

What happens when decades of experience meet with state-of-the-art technologies in our factories? Quality that you can experience and enjoy with all your senses. For example, for more than 100 years our factory in Hoogeveen in the Dutch province of Drenthe has produced naturally matured cheese, such as the popular Gouda in various stages of maturity.

Our brands MILRAM (market leader in food retailing and food service) and Oldenburger delight people with flavoursome, creamy and piquant cheese specialities. We are a strong partner, supporting private labels with our products and services.

Our decision to use our expertise in cheese for vegan alternatives demonstrate that tradition and innovation always go hand in hand at DMK – from milk to plant-based alternatives. 

We put everything into creating the perfect cheese. 

The best recipes, optimum production conditions, excellent raw ingredients and sustainable packaging make our cheese a popular sales hit in chilled cabinets all over the world. With a broad range of shapes and pack sizes for the cheese counter, the pre-pack section or the chilled cabinet, for food service, community care and bakeries – with our expertise and modern production facilities, we fulfil almost every wish our customers have.

Our 360° service supports partners in retailing and the eating-out market from product development to logistics. We aim out of conviction for sustainability, quality and innovation.

With a finger on the pulse of the times

Consumer preferences change – and that’s why the food sector constantly comes up with new and exciting trends. Which we see and tap into with our in-house DMK international trend network and trend management. Our know-how from regular consumer and market studies ensures that our partners achieve differentiation in the market.

However, our cheese experts don't just think about the end consumer, but also about the specific requirements of professionals from industry, trade and the eating-out market. From the cheese that melts on a pizza in the ideal way, to chefs’ requirements – we make sure in dialogue with the professionals that our products meet the highest standards. 

But we keep an eye on the market, not only on the plate but also beyond. We analyse how product portfolios develop, what presentations are popular on the shelf or at the cheese counter, and what flavours are currently trending. We focus not just on making cheese, but also on understanding how it can be used successfully in the multi-faceted world of food service and retailing.
