As an owner-managed family dairy run by its fourth generation, our whole love is dedicated to our cheese specialities. Standard products are a foreign concept to us – RÜCKER stands for the exceptional. From us you get special cheeses that make all the difference to your salads, your antipasti variations and your other delicatessen creations.

Sustainable naturalness

Our Frisian Shepherd’s cheese is the North German version of the Greek feta, already developed by us in the 1960s. It is identical in consistency to feta, and in its production too. However, our northern German version tastes somewhat milder. We also stock it as a creamy version and as different sized cubes (5 mm, 12 mm, 14 mm, 16 mm) for salads. All Shepherd’s cheese varieties mature naturally in brine and do not contain any colourings or preservatives. With RÜCKER Delicatessen you make your delicacies sustainably natural.

No additives guaranteed

Regional raw materials guaranteed

We exclusively process high-quality cow’s milk from farms in Germany’s coastal regions in all our Shepherd’s cheeses. All farms are located 80 kilometres from the coast at the most – and therefore close to one of our two dairy plants in Wismar and Aurich. 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. Short distances, high transparency, everything from a single source – this is how we guarantee our own quality standards.
