Über uns / A propos de nous / About us

The fenaco cooperative pursues the objective of supporting Swiss farmers in the economic development of their enterprises. Together with its LANDIs, fenaco forms a group of companies and offers means of production to farmers. It accepts and markets agricultural produce such as grain, corn, oilseeds, potatoes, animals for slaughter, eggs, vegetables, fruit, berries and grapes. In its industrial plants, fenaco refines this produce to create high-quality food and beverages. It markets them to the Swiss retail trade, restaurant chains, the hotel industry and catering, hospitals and care homes – and it supplies its own sales channels – LANDI, Volg, TopShop and independent retailers.
