The history of the family von Mühlenen

Our family is almost since two 200 years active in the Swiss cheese making. The History of the von Mühlenen in cheese and food business began in Bern with Andreas von Mühlenen established in 1867. His son Ernst von Mühlenen was for a short period in the textile industry but then he came back to the cheese and bought 1909 form Hans Bieri a cheese ripening and exporting company. The company was the renamed von Mühlenen & co and in 1916 his brother Eugen joined the company.

After Ernst died in 1934 his son Walo continued with the von Mühlenen & Co and after the war he increased the exports to Europe and North America. When Walo began to concentrate more and more on his second business in the chemical field, his son Roger took over the cheese activities.

1970 the company moved from Bern to the canton of Fribourg and the company was named von Mühlenen Ltd. Walo died in 1972 and his son Roger took over the business, he continuously increased the sales and especially the quality of the cheeses. In 1996 the son of Roger Walo took over in the 5th Generations the company.
