DMK Group Opens €145 Million High-tech Baby Food Plant

In line with its strategy to create added value and develop its branded business, DMK Group, Germany’s largest dairy co-operative, has opened a new high-tech baby food facility at Strückhausen. Created in May 2011 following the merger of Humana Milchindustrie and Nordmilch, DMK Group has invested €145 million to convert a former dairy plant at the site into one of the most cutting-edge baby food production facilities in Germany. The new plant at Strückhausen, which incorporates the lastest technology, high-quality infrastructure and energy-saving processes and equipment, will now serve as the new base for DMK Group’s Humana premium baby food brand.

When fully commissioned, the plant will be able to process up to 40 million kg of GM-free milk per year to produce baby milk formula of the highest powder quality for the German and international markets. The company sources high-quality raw material from its own milk producers, which are located close to the plant.

“The conversion has enabled us to fulfil the requirements for further strategic alignment between the DMK Group and the Humana brand. The investment will allow us to meet the requirements of state-of-the-art baby food production in the future too, both in terms of our own production capacity and our customers’ quality, sustainability and flexibility requirements,” explains Ingo Müller, chief executive of the DMK Group.

DMK Group is focusing on expanding its baby food business both domestically and internationally. The German dairy company’s Humana brand is currently present in more than 60 markets, including Poland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, China, Russia and Dubai.
