Cheese on the road to success

App alps 0015

Natural, healthy and authentic pure enjoyment. This is what our customers love about our cheese specialties. In order to ensure the excellent quality and aromatic flavor, the untreated milk is processed in the local cheese dairy immediately after milking without long transport routes. Thanks to the artisanal production according to the traditional recipe without the use of artificial additives, we guarantee naturalness and originality. The result is our unadulterated cheese, influenced by the local nature, completed during the maturation in our cellars.

Our specialties are now widely available in Rewe stores in Germany. This is another important success of this year, after many of our products had received several of the best awards at the International Cheese Awards in Nantwich, UK as well as at the quality competition of the German Agricultural Society (DLG). Rewe has added our cheeses "Lustenberger 1862 aromatic-savory," "Fior delle Alpi," "Jura Montagne" and "Saint Christoph" to the product range.
