Milk products are extremely popular in Russia. Kefir, ryazhenka and sour cream are considered to be healthy food. Not long ago, a new product appeared in the list – yogurt. To see which yogurt they eat in Russia, we are heading to Ehrmann company producing ‘Ermighurt’, ‘Prebiotic’, ‘Ermic’, etc. Alois Ehrmann launched his company in Germany in 1920. It was the first company to produce yogurt containing pieces of real fruits which caused a stir among customers. Today, it is
the most technically advanced yogurt factory in Germany. It began exporting its produce to Russia in 1997 and when its turnover reached 100 million German marks, the owners of the company decided to build a yogurt factory in Russia too. The factory opened in 2000 in Ramensky District, the Moscow Region. Today it produces a variety of yogurts and yogurt products such as sour cream, cottage cheese, puddings, desserts, milk shakes and yogurt drinks.
