Experience forms the basis of everything.
To become a specialist for butter, fats and oils takes more than a day. To become a top supplier, the know-how must grow continuously like the annual rings of a tree: slowly and over a long period of time.
In our case since more than 111 years.
Our history of success started on January 14th, 1902, when Maria and August Saumweber founded a small dairy in an area of Munich called Au. In this dairy butter, yoghurt, curd cheese and other dairy products were freshly produced day by day from the milk delivered from farmers in the surrounding Bavarian countryside.
Within several generations these modest beginnings have developed into being a prime manufacturer of milk and vegetable fats with a Europe-wide reputation. Many things have changed throughout this permanent process of innovation and growth – however, one thing has remained: We are a family business and accordingly we are committed to values, such as fairness, confidence and reliability. Our special concern is to fulfil our responsibility for humans and the environment, and this is the way it should remain - also in the interest of all our loyal customers.
