Bonifaz Kohler GmbH
Bonifaz Kohler GmbH is the company within the Hochland Grupo which specialises in marketing self-service cheese products for the retail trade’s own brands. This sales and marketing company works with virtually all the well-known European retail companies, supplying products from all cheese categories. A key focus of its work is to develop innovative product concepts which meet the specific needs of the trade partners.

The name Bonifaz Kohler derives from the proprietor of the Emmental wholesale firm Bonifaz Kohler KG founded in 1880 in Goßholz near Lindenberg. The company purchased Emmental cheeses in Switzerland and from dairies in the Allgäu, ripened them in their own storage cellars and then resold the finished products.

Bonifaz Kohler managed the small company in the twenties with his stepson Georg Summer. At this time a production method for processed cheese began to be used which had been invented in Switzerland just before the 1st World War. It was now possible to make cheese non-perishable – an enormous advantage at the time.

Georg Summer founded the Hochland cheese plant with Robert Reich in 1927. The first product was a 2 kg Emmental processed cheese block which was sold through Bonifaz Kohler KG. When Bonifaz Kohler died in 1928, Georg Summer carried on his stepfather’s business. Hochland products continued to be marketed through Bonifaz Kohler KG. It was not until the early forties of the 20th century that Hochland took over the marketing of its own products.

Bonifaz Kohler – a name which stands for the roots of cheese marketing within the Hochland Group. Bonifaz Kohler GmbH continues this tradition today in modern, professional style.
