Bergland used to be 27 different production sites in Upper and Lower Austria, Styria, Carinthia and Burgenland. Big changes happened in 1996, when the Berglandmilch group took over the activities of AMF (Austrian Milk and Meat) including their brands. Following were tight restructuring programs, 20 production sites were closed or merged. Between 2009 and 2011, 3 more organisations joined Berglandmilch (Landfrisch, Tirol Milch, Stainzer Milch). Berglandmilch today has 7+ brands and around 350 different fresh products. (Source: History)

The brand Schärdinger
Berglandmilch was founded in Schärding in Upper Austria back in 1900 by innovative farmers who grouped together their dairy production, with 15 cooperative dairies 10 years later and 34 members in 1937. Renamed to "Schärdinger OÖ Molkereiverband" (the Schärding Upper Austrian Dairy Association) in 1952, the group continued its growth, investments and expansion/export activities. In 1980, Schärdinger crossed the 4.3 billion Schillings (old Austrian currency) turnover mark. The oldest marketing cooperative, the "Schärdinger OÖ. Molkereiverband reg.Gen.m.b.H." (Schärdinger Dairy Association Limited) became part of the AMF (Austria Milk and Meat Marketing Co-operation Limited) in 1990. In 1995, Berglandmilch was newly founded and took over all activities of AMF. (Source: History)
