The Dilly Company was founded in Armenia, 2005. In the same year the company founded agricultural complex in one of the most picturesque places of Armenia, i.e. Dilijan, the purpose of which was the production and sale of ecologically pure dairy products meeting international quality standards. The factory's operations make up around 9000 sq. m, including the farm, production factory , garage and storage facilities.
When designing and constructing the farm, the most up-to-date methods of cattle breeding were taken into account. Schwitz and Simmental pedigree cows were imported from Germany; their milk yields about 6,000 kilograms of high quality milk per year.
In order to ensure continuous provision of quality fodder for the cows, the company leased plots with Alpine meadows in the regions of Armenia and also set up a large fodder supply that is being constantly replenished. These efficiently managed facilities allows for sustainable, year-round production of fresh, natural, ecologically pure milk.
The equipment used for milk processing and production of dairy products was imported from Italy and installed by specialists. Since the company’s main product is the Italian Mozzarella cheese, the company works with an Italian cheese maker who is ranked among the top ten in Italy. The company takes pride in the production of natural products without chemical agents (preservatives, dyes, emulsifiers).
Since August of 2006 the company has been producing fresh mozzarella, mozzarella for pizza and Ricotta as well as Armenian cheese. The company also produces cream and butter. The company started to export its products in 2007 and plans to increase its export potential in the future.
