Sponsorship

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.
