About us

More than one hundred years of tradition

We are more than one hundred years old. Actually, we are even older than that. If you go back to the beginnings of dairy farming in the South Bohemia region, a tradition upon which we build, you would have to go all the way back to 1838. It was back then that the first cheese makers were founded in the Schwarzenberg Court near České Budějovice.

Madeta itself was founded around the year 1902 in the town of Tábor. Back then it was named MLÉKÁRENSKÉ DRUŽSTVO TÁBORSKÉ (TÁBOR DAIRY COOP). It was the first letters of this name that were used to create the unforgettable MADETA brand name.

It survived countless historical events and thus also the changes that occurred in ownership that occurred in the 20th century in Central Europe. It changed as the world changed around it. Fortunately, most of these changes were for the better. That is why it is stronger today than it has ever been and is still just as renowned for its state-of-the-art technology and products of the highest quality.

About us

1 million litres of milk daily

Madeta is 4 in 1. Four individual plants that are really very close to each other, not only in terms of their brand name, company culture and the fact that they develop and grow on purely Czech capital – they are literally close to each other. They are located not far from each other, practically in one region. However, it is milk that binds them together the most. In one year more than half a billion litres of milk “pours” into its operations, which is a fifth of all of the production in the Czech Republic. It leaves the company’s gates in the form of 239 kinds of products with an annual volume of 396,9 billion items. An unbelievable amount? Not at all. After all, we are the largest processor of milk in the country.

Approximately a quarter of our production is exported abroad, to Lebanon, the United Arab Emirates, European Union countries, Asia, Africa, and to America. Even though it might seem that with that kind of production volume and similar technology, individual plants would lose their identity — this is not so. Each has its own “speciality” — products that can only be produced there and nowhere else. Because it is precisely there — and nowhere else — that they know how to do it best. Proof is in the taste and consumer interest.

Why our product?

Visitors to our plant in Planá have been admiring the high quality and especially the hand processing of Akawi cheeses for many years. There is no doubt that the share of foreign markets of highly valued handicrafts is considerable.

The hands of workers will touch every bun of Akawi cheese, which 1700 tons is made by hand here. Each of them is wrapped in canvas before pressing, thanks to which there is a clear decal of the fabric and seams on the loaves of cheese. Akawi is a popular delicacy, especially in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, where Madeta has been exporting it for decades. And one more interesting thing about it: the cheese is distributed in saline solution, but the Arabs desalinate it and use it in the preparation of confectionery products, or spread strawberry jam on it, which is their very popular delicacy.
