litres of milk processed

Sole-Mizo Zrt. is Hungary’s market leading dairy company, boasting the widest product range in this country. In our four plants in Szeged, Bácsbokod, Marcali and Csorna we employ 1200 people and process more than 400 million litres of milk each year. Our products are available all over Hungary, and each age group will surely find their favourites among them. Our product development efforts are aimed not only at ensuring quality and safety and the conventional consumer segment but also at those with special needs, including lactose-sensitive consumers and those wishing to lose weight, so that they are not excluded from the joy of consuming dairy products.

Mizo is our most well-known brand, which is a modern, innovative brand. Our other brands include Hazai, Farmer, Gazda and Sole. While the products making up the latter portfolio are produced primarily for export, the other ones are sold to meet the demand of domestic consumers.

Fresh and fermented dairy products, UHT milk products, curd cheese and processed cheese products as well as desserts are manufactured at our Szeged plant, the largest dairy plant in Central Europe. Our Bácsbokod plant manufactures natural and smoke-cured cheeses, grill cheeses and kashkaval, in various sizes and packaging presentations. Our plant in Csorna specialises in export products for industrial use (e.g. milk powder), along with butter and dairy spreads, condensed milk, akkawi cheese and our market leader Coffee Selection products. Our dairy plant in Marcali is a gem: that is where our popular curd cheese desserts are manufactured, with state-of-the-art technology.
