An open exchange of views is important to us.

We are in contact with a lot of people every day in the course of our work, both inside and outside the company. There are the dairy farmers, customers and employees, and also media, consumer protection organisations and many other groups with whom we maintain a regular conversation.

For this reason, we conduct our stakeholder survey once every year. However, we also take part in conversations with small groups and panel discussions. It’s the only way for us to obtain important feedback and incorporate new ideas and inspirations into our corporate strategy.

We are glad of the close working relationship with DMK, whose contribution to sustainable value creation also helps in the conservation of grassland regions.

We contribute actively.

One important element of our engagement with stakeholders is memberships and alliances. DMK has been active for many years in more than 100 organisations. They include regional, nationwide and international associations, trade associations relating to the food industry, farm animal welfare and agriculture, and renowned research institutes.

DMK provides to these membership organisations with its skills and experience, and benefits from the exchange of views and information and active participation in the further development of important industry topics. You’ll find an overview of our current memberships and alliances here.

Our work: outstanding and award-winning.

We have had the privilege of receiving awards for our commitment many times. In total, DMK received 219 DLG medals across all sites in 2019, comprising 187 gold and 32 silver award. We also received the distinction of “green company”.

Our work to increase sustainability was recognised in 2019 by EcoVadis for the third consecutive year with Gold status, putting us in the best 1% in the industry. EcoVadis’s objective is to promote corporate environmental and social practices by performance monitoring.


DMK was already honoured in the German Awards for Excellence in the “Energy Efficiency” category in 2017.

All these awards make us very proud and strengthen us in our resolve to go on pursuing the high goals that we as a company have laid down in our DMK 2030 mission statement.
