Our Alter Schwede, Alt-Mecklenburger and Küsten-Urtyp varieties are naturally matured cheeses with red cultures that are particularly appreciated by consumers looking to enjoy and savour their food. All recipes come from our family, the raw materials have remained the same since our founding year in 1890. Just like back then, our cheese specialities are matured in the traditional natural way on untreated spruce boards in our cheese cellars at the Wismar site.

We give international classics Northern flair

In addition to our traditional products, we produce our own range of white cheeses. Our traditional Frisian Shepherd’s cheese is the North German version of the Greek feta. Rücker developed its own Shepherd’s cheese as early as the 1960s. Today it is also available as a creamy version and as a cube for salads. All Shepherd’s cheese varieties mature naturally in brine and do not contain any colourings or preservatives. The strategy of adding Northern flair was also applied to our grilling cheese: inspired by halloumi, but doesn’t squeak when eaten. Our grilling cheese is made from 100% cheese – unfortunately this no longer goes without saying…

Guarantee of origin: 100% German coastal farm milk

For the RÜCKER brand products, we guarantee the origin of our raw material 100%: all cheeses are made from German coastal farm milk. What does that mean? Our coastal farmers’ farms are up to 80 kilometres away from the coast. So close to our two cheese dairies in Aurich and Wismar. Coastal farm milk is not only a guarantee for transparency. It also ensures short distances and considerable CO2 savings.

No additives, sustainably packaged

We do not use any colourings or preservatives in all RÜCKER cheese specialities. Pure nature, that’s our maxim. Sustainability plays a key role for us. The packaging for our naturally matured cheese specialities is made of single-grade plastic and is 100 percent recyclable. Our cheese specialities are 100 per cent ‘Made in Northern Germany’: raw materials from the region, production, manufacture and packaging at our dairy plants in Aurich and Wismar. Unfortunately, this also no longer goes without saying today…

Innovative strength and customer loyalty

RÜCKER ticks traditionally – and acts innovatively. We produce an in-house developed vegan food made from hemp and peas under the brand ‘Vega Lecker’.
