History of the Pur Natur group


In 1902 the dairy operation St. Eligius was set up in the village of Kruishoutem in East Flanders. They Raw milk was collected from farmers in the surrounding area, skimmed and brought back.

Shortly after the end of World War II this grew into a fully-functioning dairy company under the name Melkinrichting Kruishoutem (Kruishoutem Dairy), abbreviated to MIK

The production process

The cream is immediately pasteurized as soon as it arrives in order to eliminate harmful bacteria. It then begins a ripening process of 24-48 hours. This ensures that we achieve the correct acidity. After going through this traditional ripening process, the butter is freshly churned every day in authentic churns, a feature that is unique in Benelux. This is just how our forefathers did it, but ten times bigger. The churning process yields churned butter and buttermilk.
