The true secret of our success
The DMK Group is all about milk. As Germany’s largest dairy company, we devote all our energies to producing and processing this valuable natural resource. However, it’s not just the high-quality ingredients, clever packaging and unique flavour of our products that make us so successful. It’s the people who live and breathe a passion for milk who take our company a little further forward every day. We’d like to introduce you to some of them here.
"Today's society is becoming more and more interested in how milk is produced. We have to explain authentically to the public how we live from our cows, with and for them!“
Amos Venema, Deutsches Milchkontor eG dairy farmer
Around 7,700 employees take care of the development, production and marketing of our products. Many of them have been with DMK for many years. Their passion and commitment are demonstrated at the production sites and in the offices and branches alike, and make a vital contribution to the company's success.
Our dairy farmers
Around 7,000 dairy farmers supply our company with the high-quality milk that we use to make our products. They all work on modern farms and with a huge amount of dedication. There’s no such thing as a normal 8-hour day for them. That’s one reason why it is important to us to value the farmers’ tireless commitment and pay them fair rates.
"DMK has made it its mission to work as economically and sustainably as possible and thereby protect the interests of a wide range of stakeholders. That is also one of the concerns of the Council for the Future and Sustainability, of which I have been a member for several years. The supreme objective of all our deliberations is competitive milk prices for the dairy farmers."
Dagmar Bottenbruch, start-up investor and business consultant
As a company, we work with many different kinds of people, inside and outside the DMK Group. Some are business partners who develop new products with us, others support us in research projects or sustainability programmes. They all go with us on the road to a more sustainable future and provide us with important feedback. That’s how we secure the success of the DMK Group together. Today and in the future.
"I'm impressed by the committed way DMK GROUP is addressing the subject of sustainability. DMK 2020 is setting standards even on the international plane.”
