About DMK Group

The DMK Group 

The milk from our members is collected every three days by the RMO (Milk truck) and taken to one of the 20 or so production locations of the DMK Group dairy company. For example in Hoogeveen or the German town of Edewecht. There, the milk is then processed – or rather refined – into delicious dairy products. Such as cheese, baby food and ice cream, which are sold and consumed worldwide.


The member dairy farmers are paid a milk price which depends, on the one hand, on the price of dairy products on the international dairy market and, on the other hand, on the results achieved by the DMK Group. After all, since April 2016, cooperative DOC Kaas together with cooperative Deutsches Milchkontor eG have been co-owners of DMK GmbH.
