Focused on expansion and at the same time committed to our roots – this has remained the same since the company’s founding 1887. The company was founded as a small cheese dairy by Josef Anton Meggle I in Wasserburg am Inn near Munich over 135 years ago. It is now one of the most renowned manufacturers of dairy products in Europe.
As an internationally active company, MEGGLE offers ranges with a focus on butter and butter specialities, fresh dairy products along the entire white dairy line, filled baked goods for wholesale and end consumers as well as high-quality hard and semi-hard cheese. Dry milk products are manufactured as special products for the pharmaceutical and food-processing industries and sold worldwide.
