For several decades, Emmi's international business had focused on exports from Switzerland and licence agreements abroad. The resources associated with this abroad were manageable. Since the turn of the century, however, an increasing number of larger stakes in foreign production sites have transformed Emmi into an international corporate group. Since the beginning of 2014 the new Group structure takes into account market opportunities, the importance of the Swiss domestic market and the increasing internationalisation of Emmi. The vision of Emmi as an independent company maintaining its position in open markets for the duration remains unchanged. Similarly, Emmi's three strategic pillars will also remain intact: (1) Strengthening its market-leading position in Switzerland, (2) Targeted international growth, (3) Rigorous and long-term cost management.
