History and production of Puck®

The Puck® brand started as a spreadable cream cheese in Germany, but was launched in the Middle East in 1983 with a selection of processed products, primarily cheese. In 1988 the main product, spreadable cheese in jars, sold more than 1000 tonnes. Since then, Puck® has become one of the region’s leading dairy brands.

In recent years we have also seen the launch of Puck® in the North African countries. Moreover, Puck® products are also available in selected stores in Europe, while Arla Foods has also been successful in launching the brand in Kazakhstan in Central Asia.
