Emmi distributes its products in Switzerland via its own sales organisation, primarily to retailers, the food service sector and the food industry.
Emmi supplies Swiss retailers not only with branded products but also numerous private-label items. In addition, Emmi offers an extensive range of products, for example via its subsidiary Baumann Käse AG, which specialises in distributing high-quality cheese from throughout Europe.
Food service sector
Emmi supplies customers in the food service industry via its subsidiary Emmi Frisch-Service AG as well as through a range of wholesalers.
Emmi’s product range tailored to the food service sector includes attractively priced bulk packs, handy formats such as mozzarella sticks, and ready-to-serve convenience products including Sbrinz AOP rolls and Tête de Moine AOP rosettes.
When partnering with food service providers, Emmi focuses on the professional support of chefs, for example through workshops with external specialists. Emmi reaffirms its collaborative intentions by making commitments to the Swiss national cooking teams.
Emmi supplies various food manufacturers with intermediate products, particularly milk powder and butter. These companies are not only customers but also partners when it comes to representing the interests of the Swiss food industry, for example, via the Federation of Swiss Food Industries (fial).
Emmi generally does not sell its products directly to consumers. Nonetheless, the company cultivates its relationship with them at as many levels as possible. The most intensive contact is via a central consumer services unit, which coordinates all questions about the products Emmi produces in Switzerland. Our large tasting team plays a role too by hosting nearly 3,000 tasting events annually at different retailers and wholesalers.
