Regional Dairy Cooperative in Międzybórz is located in Twardogórskie Hills in northeastern part of Lower Silesia. It is surrounded by a huge complex of forest and fields, bereft of big industry and thus ecologically clean. The factory was built in 1945 and from its inception to this day continues to produce dairy products using traditional methods. Gradually, the technological park has been upgraded, but the production profile and the quality of our dairy products remained on the same, high level. But it was the Polish accession to the EU that opened up big opportunities for the factory. While making investment decisions and financial estimates we wanted to maintain and develop the existing range of manufacturing dairy products being prepared according to the recipes known to many generations of Polish farmers kept securely by our process engineer. Today, the production process fully meets the highest criteria of the European Union and is subject to continuous monitoring and analysis. Despite this modernization, the production follows the traditional principle without any additives and unnecessary components, making our dairy products extraordinary in taste, microbiological and organoleptic properties. They stand out from many others available on the Polish market. In May 2011, during the 15th National Evaluation of High-fat Products in Lublin, a OSM Międzybórz product took 1st place in Poland and the gold medal in the category of "traditional butter". In July 2011 OSM Międzybórz has been certified nationwide with the sign “Poznaj dobrą żywność" (experience quality food) for "traditional butter", semi-fat cottage cheese and sour cream. Polish Federation of Cattle Breeders and Dairy Farmers appreciated our efforts during POLAGRA FOOD Fair in Poznań, honoring us with a "Gold Medal of the Polish Federation of Cattle Breeders and Dairy Farmers." In 2011 OSM Międzybórz submitted an application for recognition and reservation of the name "traditional butter" that has been produced on the basis of the technological process unchanged for over 50 years. Experts point out our butter, in its taste, aroma and texture, does not differ from butter produced using traditional hand churns.
