The history of Opočno dairy dates back to 1936. It was built in the heart of eastern Bohemia, today’s Hradec Králové region. The dairy processes the best milk of the foothills of Orlické mountains mountains, one of the least polluted areas of the Czech Republic.

Formerly, the dairy was owned by the Netherlands’ NUTRICIA and then Friesland. In June 2005, the company was in a successful transaction sold to BOHEMILK. Since 1st of January 2007 belongs the company BOHEMILK to the InterLacto Group, which consists of dairies in Jihlava, Olešnice and Opočno and of other agricultural subjects.
