There has been a long tradition of dairy production in the region of Záhorie. Following this tradition was established the first dairy plant, with the production dating back to 1951. The plant processed row cow’s milk, which had been bought from farmers coming from three districts. In the same area is our company active also today.

The dairy plant has since its establishment undergone several changes. After the break-up of the state company Milex in 1992 it was transformed through privatization into the state joint-stock company named Senická mliekáreň (Senica dairy plant). In 1994, after being sold to the majority shareholder, became the dairy plant a private joint-stock company. New business plan following the company’s development is being implemented in a partnership with other Slovak dairy plants. In start of year 2012 Senická mliekáreň was transformed into Syráreň Havran. It continues in 60 years traditional production of cheese in Záhorie region.

Tradition and the quality of our Edam brick cheese are from this cheese continually forming solid foundations of the company’ s future, exporting more than 50% of the annual production. We have invested in new technologies, which enable to improve qualities of the products produced until now and to produce new kinds of products as well. Apart from our own products we offer within the region also the product range of other companies - Tami Kežmarok (, Agro Tami Nitra (

Rich pasture is in bodies of healthy cows transformed into outstanding milk with the taste of this country.
From wide surroundings, riding on the roads surrounded by fields, deliver the cistern cars fresh milk to be processed by us.
Perfect hygiene and technologies accompany the process of changing the milk into cheese with excellent qualities.
After millenniums of traditional production has the production of cheese turned into a scientifically controlled process, being under constant control.
Many kinds of cheese have come to the world – thanks to tradition and knowledge, or by accident. We are staying loyal to the Edam brick cheese with an outstanding quality.
Character of cheese is changing in the course of time as the cheese matures. Finally, it reaches the point where we meet as friends by the good wine.
