24 March 19 Cremo / History

In 1917, while the rest of Europe was at war, the Swiss federal authorities organised hundreds of butter collection points to ensure that its production and distribution to the towns was maintained. The collection point for Fribourg was created on 18th August 1917. It belonged to the “Fédération laitière vaudoise-fribourgeoise” and the “Fédération laitière Zone de la Montagne”.

On 21st May 1927, the two Federations decided to turn it into a limited company and named it Cremo. Its objective was to manufacture and market all dairy products and by-products, with the particular aim of improving the manufacturing, marketing and quality of the butter produced from within the federations.
