The Pinzgau Milch Produktions GmbH is a company that is deeply rooted in the region and its traditions. It was thought up and has grown here, its foundations were peasant mergers. Until today, it relies on the good quality of milk from pristine, farmed mountain areas. Here, lived traditions and contemporary processing methods go hand in hand. The Pinzgau Milch GmbH is proud of this – and that’s something you can taste!

How It All Began

In 1934, 24 farmers from the area of Saalfelden merged to form a milk collecting cooperative. Five years later, dairy farms in Zell am See did the same. In the year of 1958, they joined forces and the dairy company Pinzgauer Molkerei reg. GenmbH was formed. In 1962, milk processing began at the newly built site in Maishofen. 


Growth & Success

Ever since, there has been a steady investment into the expansion of production facilities and capacities. In this way, a milk processing company of international stature has developed out of the former, small structured cooperative. Today, Pinzgau Milch is 80% privately owned and to 20% the property of the Pinzgau Milch registrierter Milchliefer- und Besitzgenossenschaft, a registered milk supply- and ownership cooperative.

Environment and Climate Protection

Pinzgau Milch has been a partner of Altstoff Recycling Austria AG (ARA) for many years and thus makes an important contribution to active climate protection. The ARA ensures that the packaging of our products is collected and recycled in an environmentally friendly manner. This saves the environment around 1,568 tons of CO2 a year, which corresponds to greenhouse gas emissions of over 13 million kilometers by car. All in all, the separate collection and recycling of packaging waste in the ARA system results in an annual saving of around 520,000 tons of CO2 across Austria. And that has a lasting impact on our environment.
