We value local sustainable rural life

We create new opportunities in the world for Estonian cheese, butter, protein powder and thereby Estonian agriculture. We are working daily in the name of leaving as green a footprint as possible for our future generations. We believe that sustainable way of working is the only way to offer caring environment for animals and high-quality food for our consumers while being gentle towards the nature.
