The exceptional quality of our products is not just down to their excellent taste. Case in point: the many prizes and awards we receive.
HIGHEST ACCOLADE: THE NATIONAL HONORARY AWARD
In 2020, the Federal Ministry of Consumer Protection, Food and Agriculture (BMELV) honoured Karwendel-Werke with the much sought-after National Honorary Award for the tenth year running. Karwendel is the first manufacturer of dairy products to secure the award in silver. The National Honorary Award is the highest accolade a company in the German dairy sector can achieve for quality performance. Prerequisite for winning the award are top marks in the DLG (German Agricultural Society) quality audits.
INTERNATIONAL QUALITY AWARD “PRIMAX”
In 2013, Karwendel received the prestigious “PriMax” Yellow Line Award for the 15th consecutive year. This recognition for top quality in the European dairy sector is awarded by DLG to just ten companies each year. The award goes to dairies and cheese factories that have managed to impress with their performance in international DLG quality audits with a multitude of positive results.
“EUROPEAN DAIRY AWARD” FOR OVERALL PERFORMANCE
Karwendel furthermore received the coveted European Dairy Award for the “Best all-rounder” in 2008 and 2010. This award is one of the most important recognitions in the European dairy industry. It honours companies that achieve the best overall results in the DLG quality audits for White Line (sour milk products, desserts, milk and milk-mix drinks, etc.) and Yellow Line (cheese and cream cheese) products.
