The history of Vorarlberg Milk is the result of the concerted efforts which have made it possible to mutually produce and serve its market!
The `Grossmolkerei` Dornbirn (Gromo) is founded.
The Dairy plant `Milchhof Oberland` comes into being from the amalgamation of the Bludenz and Feldkirch Dairies. Both concerns had already amalgamated approximately 20 local dairies.
The Rankweil Dairy Co-operative becomes affiliated to the `Milchhof Oberland`.
Gromo takes over the Bregenz Dairy, with the result it provides 60% of Vorarlbergers with milk products.
Gromo and Milchhof Oberland merge to form Vorarlberg Milch in order to meet the challenges provided by the market.
