The company in the heart of Austria offers its customers a wide range of different milk and cheese products.

The Gmundner Dairy is the third largest dairy in Austria with an annual turnover of 199 million Euros.

Situated in the heart of Europe: the Gmundner dairy is located in one of Austrias most beautiful regions – the Salzkammergut.
During its more than 85-year-long history, the dairy of Gmunden has developed into one of the leading food producing and processing companies in Austria. These days, high technology production equipment and highest quality standards are basic prerequisites for the success of the company.

Besides long-life milk, coffee cream and cottage cheese, our flagship products are especially our premium-quality cheese specialities, which continually achieve high awards at worldrenowned comparison Competitions.
The Gmundner Dairy leading brands are the “Gmundner Milch”, “Almliesl” and “Rosan”.

One company: 2,184 owners

The 2,184 dairy farmers not only deliver their raw milk to the Gmundner Dairy but are also, at the same time, owners of this cooperative with a long tradition.

Rooted in the region: In 1931 about 40 dairy farmers, mainly from Traunkirchen and Altmünster near Gmunden, had a vision: to create a common platform for the collection, processing and marketing of their milk. Since the foundation stone was laid a lot has happened.
