A Tradition of Innovation

Originally established in 1885, Ammerland Dairy is one of the first dairy cooperatives in Northern Germany and continues to be run exclusively by local farmers as a cooperative. The seven founders could never in their wildest dreams have imagined the quantities of milk now processed here, or the production systems used that far exceed regulatory requirements. With a modern compressed air system featuring oil-free rotary screw compressors from Kaeser, Amerland Dairy is well-equipped for future growth. This case study shows how a dairy cooperative in Ammerland, one of the largest milk-producing regions in Germany, has continued to grow steadily to keep pace with the scale of local farming.
