RÜCKER - Wholesalers Food Service in Ethnic Food segment

Rücker Food Service stands for unique cheese. In the Food Service as well as the bulk consumer area, our various brands of white cheese like “oba” and “Waterkant” are especially popular. We have been one of the leading makers of white cheese in Europe for more than 40 years. We offer them as traditional shepherd’s cheese, but also as the creamy variant and as salad cubes. All varieties of shepherd’s cheese mature naturally in brine and are free of colourings and preservatives.
Whether High Protein, Clean Label or regional ingredients – with these products you are sure to score with your customers.

RÜCKER Foodservice stands for Clean Label and 100 % cheese

As an owner-managed family dairy in the fourth generation, our whole love is for our cheese specialities. We don’t know standard products – RÜCKER stands for exceptional and special. Our cheese makes the difference on your menu. RÜCKER Foodservice stands for unique cheese. In addition to our traditional products such as naturally matured and savoury cheese specialities, we produce our own white cheese range. Our traditional Friesischer Hirtenkäse is the North German version of the Greek Feta, which we developed in the 1960s. We also offer it as a creamy version and as salad cubes. All types of shepherd’s cheese are naturally matured in brine and are free of colourings and preservatives. The same strategy is applied to our grilled cheese: Inspired by halloumi, but does not squeak when eaten. Our grilled cheese consists of 100% cheese – unfortunately no longer a matter of course today…

Short distances and highest standards

Our cheese is produced, packaged and packed in Aurich and Wismar respectively. Short distances, high transparency, everything from a single source – this is how we ensure our own quality standards. And we are on the road to sustainability. This is demonstrated not only by our energy management (certified according to ISO 50001:2018). To guarantee the high quality of our white cheese, we control according to a strictly regulated system. RÜCKER works according to the established German and international quality standards in the dairy industry, including IFS Broker Version 3,2019 (Higher Level), IFS Food Version 6.1, November 2017 and the international labour law standard SMETA 4 Pillars. In addition, our products are halal (Halal Control) and certified according to the Malaysian halal standard. Our quality standards are regularly assessed by external auditors and we are repeatedly successfully certified.

Besides milk, now also plants

Unter der Marke ‘Vega Lecker’ haben wir ein veganes Lebensmittel aus den heimischen Rohstoffen Hanf und Erbse auf den Markt gebracht. ‘Vega Lecker’ ist jedoch keine Alternative zum Käse – sondern eine neuartige Option für ernährungs- und umweltbewusste Verbraucher.
