Cremo innovates, creates, processes, manufactures and markets consumer dairy products. Cremo is a guarantee of quality, sustainability and full flavor.

The two fundamental pillars of Cremo are:

Nature, the source of our dairy products: milk - fresh and natural, noble yet fragile. A raw material that requires irreproachable quality in order to manufacture products of first quality. Daily checks at various stages of production are carried out to ensure quality and traceability throughout the production stages.

Innovation, at the heart of our skills: We work hard to achieve the best products for our customers. This, both in terms of taste and nutritional qualities as well as food safety but also and above all for the sake of sustainability.

Our employees work every day to uphold these pillars that are the foundation of our company. Providing customers with superior quality products while guaranteeing a more than fair treatment to the milk producers is the basis of the foundation of Cremo.

Cremo is the second largest milk processing company in Switzerland and employs around 800 people. Milk, essentially from western Switzerland, is collected and processed. More than 90% of the Cremo shareholders are milk producers. The company is not listed on the stock market.
