For more than 100 years now, Inex has been producing and marketing delicious and healthy dairy products. In the late 19th century, milk was collected from the local farmers in a horse and cart to be processed into primary products, such as milk, butter and buttermilk. Today, the fourth generation is continuing the same activities of the family business with an identical commitment vis-à-vis its customers: to guarantee the consistent quality and taste of its products. Of course, nowadays, the dairy is produced according to state-of-the-art techniques and innovative standards.
