The History

More than fifty years ago when Roberto Larcher started his business, he probably never imagined how much it would grow and change. From the small individual dairy processing factory to a nameable meat processing business we look back on significant events and changes. However, some important things never changed, the family atmosphere of the business, the respect of traditions and the passion for quality. That's why, looking back at half a century of experience, daily effort, small and big changes along the way, we consider the history of Mendelspeck L.T.D. as relevant for us as it is for our customers. It follows a small “collection of moments” that have been important for our Business and brought us to where we are now.
