Swiss dairy group Emmi has acquired 34% of Emmi Fondue (EFON) from Bongrain, the French milk processor. Bongrain has held the stake since late 2004.

Emmi will continue to focus on developing the processed cheese brands Gerber, Gala, Tigre, Chalet and Swiss Knight both in Switzerland and abroad.

Emmi and Bongrain have agreed not to disclose the price paid for the share exchange.
