Innovation – firmly anchored in our corporate strategy

A dynamic market such as that for high-quality dairy products demands continuous further development. We are addressing the future and have anchored innovations firmly in our corporate strategy.

In the past years, we have set up an additional corporate department at DMK GROUP - our Corporate Innovation Management - and created a positive innovation culture. Our „Milk Innovation Center“ (MIC) within the Research & Development department provide the ideal conditions.

With innovations, we are investing in the future and getting the best out of ourvaluable raw material, milk: in order to serve the needs of customers now and in the future, achieve greater added value for profitable growth, contribute to paying our farmers a fair price for their milk and open up opportunities for us to go in new directions.

Our innovation process

The innovation process is driven forward throughout the Group by a team of experts. Networking of knowledge and skills plays a crucial role both in research and development and in the implementation of innovations.

We manage innovations in interdisciplinary organisations even in the early stage in order to involve different corporate departments in the innovation process. This process begins with the identification of relevant trends, continuing through the development of ideas to their implementation as innovations and their further tracking.

We strengthen our innovativeness by integrating external partners in our innovation process.

We use innovative solutions to meet global challenges, thereby shaping the future - for us as a company, our farmers, our customers and the consumers of our products.

We generate innovations along the entire milk value chain – which offers a wide field with enormous potential.

We are a competent partner for innovations in the dairy industry: in addition to new products, innovations at DMK also embrace new business areas and models, new technologies, processes and optimised procedures, new ingredients for product manufacturing and new packaging materials.
