About Hochland Natec


Intelligent food technology with a long history

Georg Summer and Robert Reich founded the Hochland cheese factory in 1927. The first Hochland product was a 2 kg block of processed emmental cheese. Within short time the range of product had been enlarged with the production of processed cheese wedges. In the following years further production sites had been established all over Europe. Today Hochland produces at 13 production sites all over the world and is one of the largest and leading manufacturer of processed cheese in Europe.


The foundation of Hochland Natec

In 1974 Hochland established their own machine building company Natec. The foundation of the machine building company as a subsidiary is a proof for the company‘s innovative force. As the special machines with sufficient capacity and hygienic design were not available on the worldmarket Hochland decided to design them by themselves securing a technological advance.


Production and packaging of processed cheese

Today Hochland Natec employs about 110 employees, who develop, design, build and sell the special machines for production, processing and packing of processed cheese. The direct access to the Hochland production site offers the unique advantage of continuous improvement of our machines in maintenance, hygienic, operating and production safety.
