One company: 2,274 owners

The 2,274 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.

Something good from the Salzkammergut – made with love, it can be seen at first glance what the Gmundner dairy products are made of: a good piece from the Salzkammergut.
