Contract production

HOCHDORF looks back on years of experience in spray technology. Milk was dried in the first spray tower in Central Switzerland as far back as 1913. Today, our ultra-modern new production facilities in Sulgen and Hochdorf put us at the cutting edge of technology for drying non-dairy products and other specialities, as well as milk. On the 6 towers and 5 rollers located between our two sites, we spray complex high-fat products and other products to the highest baby food quality standards.
