Another milestone is reached. As the 100th company, we win the licence for the use of the "Ohne GenTechnik" seal from Lebensmittel ohne Gentechnik e.V. Our "Zottarella" brand is, at the time, the first German and only international mozzarella brand that meets the strict EU regulations for labelling that is "without GM". Shortly after, we also convert the production of Bayerntaler products over to milk that is GM-free and free from imported feed.
With the international background of our luxury dairy in mind, we change our name to "Zott SE & Co. KG".
The Zott family continues to grow with the purchase of the Polish branded product manufacturer Bacha Polska.
