Leitbild / Plan directeur / Mission statement

fenaco is an agricultural cooperative based on a 150-year-old idea. It is owned by the LANDIs and their members, the farmers of Switzerland. Agriculture plays a significant part in ensuring a reliable supply of food to the Swiss population, preserving our natural resources and shaping the areas we live in. It is of vital importance to society. fenaco promotes sustainable, marketbased and efficient agriculture along the entire value chain.


In close partnership with the LANDIs, fenaco supports farmers in developing their businesses.


We are reliable, committed and firmly rooted.

Market performance

We are active along the entire food and agriculture value chain, and build a bridge between farmers and consumers – de la terre à la table.

As a supplier, we provide the agricultural sector with a comprehensive range of production goods, consumer goods, technology and services across all production methods – everything required to efficiently produce safe and healthy Swiss food in a way that is in line with the market and makes lean use of resources. As a marketing partner to the farmers we serve, we ensure that high-quality Swiss food reaches the customers. We procure, store, process and distribute agricultural products nationally and internationally. And as a retailer, we supply food and consumer goods to the population, mainly in rural areas. We also operate as an energy partner, specialising in heat and mobility and serving rural regions in particular.

Employees and leadership

Our employees are the key to our success. Meaningful work, autonomy in the workplace, competitive employment terms, open dialogue and individual development opportunities for all make us an attractive employer. We are committed to protecting the health and personal integrity of our employees, and to providing a safe workplace. In everything we do, we focus on value, observe clear rules of cooperation and follow our leadership principles, thus creating an atmosphere of trust, partnership and mutual respect.


We are close to our customers. We work in decentralised, flexible organisational units that operate on the market with considerable autonomy, independence and innovation in line with our shared principles. Our business and service units form a strong network.

Business principles
