For more than three generations, the Ehrmann family has worked to perfect their yogurt-making techniques and old-world recipes to deliver some of Europe's most celebrated yogurt product. America's affinity and fascination with European-styled yogurt has carved a new segment in the marketplace. Bavarian lowfat yogurt is unlike any other in the world. It's indulgent, creamy and rich. It's a good source of Vitamins A & D and high in taste, but not in calories or fat.
The basic recipe for the perfect quality of each Ehrmann product consists of four key elements: the best ingredients, old-world craftsmanship, modern processing and seamless quality control. An innovative fresh aseptic manufacturing process and only all natural ingredients contribute to the extraordinary fresh and creamy yogurt experience. Plus, as part of its commitment to its worldwide community, Ehrmann supports its farmers and employees. A portion of net profits from the sale of these products are donated to the dairy farmers.
The Ehrmann family learned the craft of yogurt-making in Oberschonegg im Allgau, Germany, in 1929. In lush Bavarian valleys surrounded by the majestic Alps, the family refined the art of generating the creamy essence of the very best of fresh, pure milk. Over the years, the Ehrmann family developed techniques and perfected old-world recipes – creating scrumptious tastes and smooth, spoonable textures unlike any other. The Ehrmann's maintain their commitment to the old-world techniques and all natural ingredients that make Bavarian yogurt a world's favorite. The family dairy has remained true to this philosophy, so its dairy products are still produced successfully and marketed "by the family for the family." Continuing to expand its position worldwide, Ehrmann is among the leading dairies in Europe. The company remains an independent family enterprise that stands for quality, sustainability, and tradition.
