The fenaco-LANDI Group
fenaco is organised as a cooperative association comprising over 180 LANDI cooperatives. Most of these cooperatives are in the hands of Swiss farmers. About 20 companies and well over a dozen brands are grouped into the four key strategic business fields: Agricultural, Food Industry, Retail Trade and Energy.
The history of LANDI Switzerland dates back to 1964. Much has changed since then. Here is an overview of the milestones:

LANDI Switzerland restricts its sponsorship activities to a few national commitments that aim to strengthen the LANDI brand in general. For instance, LANDI Switzerland is the principal sponsor of EHC Biel/Bienne, the ice-hockey club. These activities are flanked by sponsorship for institutions and associations in and around our headquarters in Dotzigen.
LANDI stores take on individual commitments in connection with local events in order to strengthen links with their regions. For this reason, please contact your local LANDI if you are interested in sponsorship.
LANDI Switzerlands media unit is available to provide journalists with information on all aspects of LANDI stores. Please call us or write to us. We'll be glad to assist you.
