Company history

ENNSTAL ALPINE COOPERATIVE

The cooperative cheese dairy in Gröbming was born in 1902. This revolutionary step marked the beginning of today's Ennstal Alpine Cooperative, which has enabled independent subsidiaries to develop under the umbrella of this holding company: Landena KG & Landena Wels KG were established as specialised food producers for the whole of Europe, while Ennstal Milch KG grew into an international dairy and Tierfreund KG became an international producer of pet food. With over 1300 employees, the Ennstal Alpine Cooperative makes a significant contribution to the economic stability of the entire region.
