Cheese and milk

Elsa-Mifroma is a leading group of companies in the Swiss dairy trade with a firm commitment to the high Swiss quality standards. It respects the environment in all its operations.

Mifroma specialises in cheese ripening, conditioning and packaging. In a cave carved into the sedimentary rock by the forces of nature over thousands of years, the company matures different varieties of cheese over many months. More than 100,000 wheels of Gruyère AOP cheese are matured simultaneously throughout the year under unchanging climatic conditions. The matured cheese varieties are packaged, labelled and stored. They include Gruyère AOP, Switzerland Swiss, Emmentaler AOP, Appenzeller, fondue, raclette and other specialities.


As a Swiss specialist for milk products and milk processing, Elsa combines the unique expertise it has gathered in over 60 years of operation with a passion for quality, innovation and tradition. Its cutting-edge technology guarantees a select assortment of products. Every day, 0.8 to 1 million kilos of milk arrive in Estavayer-le-Lac and 700 tonnes of processed milk leave the plant.
