The company was founded in 1991 by private individuals who, until that time, had played an active role in the dairy industry and foreign trade.
From the very beginning the company's core activity has been in exporting dairy products, in particular milk powders and butter. This trend has been preserved to this day, however the assortment has been expanded to include cheese, condensed milk, sweet whey powder, demineralised whey powder, UHT milk, liquid products, baby nutrition, dried mixtures and consumer products.
In 1993 the company purchased a majority share in Jihlavské mlékárny a.s., now called Moravia Lacto a.s., Jihlava and in 2006 managed to expand dairy division to include two further dairies Bohemilk, a.s. Opočno and Mlékárna Olešnice RMD, whereby the group strengthened its position particularly in the area of long-life dairy products, curd, white cheese and the gastro range, including ice cream mixes, drift-ice drinks and baby nutrition.
In 2000, the company decided to invest into agricultural enterprises in the Jihlava region, striving to achieve more efficient linkage of producers and processors. The company grew as a result becoming a relevant producer of feed mixtures and pork meat.
Export and import activities represent around 90% of the company's annual turnover. Exports are mainly directed to China, the Middle East, Russia, the Balkan countries, South America, and the European Union. Within the Czech Republic the company assumes a leading position among producers of dairy products.
