Sachsenmilch Leppersdorf GmbH
AS PART OF THE GLOBALLY ACTIVE THEO MÜLLER GROUP, SACHSENMILCH LEPPERSDORF GMBH IS ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL DAIRIES IN EUROPE.
More than 2,800 employees, groundbreaking technologies and sophisticated processes ensure that almost zero valuable milk is lost. Every year, 1.7 billion kilograms of milk is processed at our plant in Leppersdorf, 50 per cent of it in our cheese dairies. The remaining 50 per cent of the milk is used to produce fresh milk products, UHT milk and milk and whey derivatives. And what is left over is processed into bioethanol in our own distillation plant, because well thought-out management is important to us. Our core expertise focuses on the production of a wide range of cheese classics and specialities for industry and food retailers. With state-of-the-art production facilities and experience spanning more than 25 years of cheese production, we can meet almost every customer request: from the development of recipes to packaging solutions.
