Transcript of Alpina
Before Goggle and Bazinger founded Alpina, only fresh cheeses had been eaten in Colombia, they introduced new cheeses such as Emmental and Parmesan, they have since remained innovative in their products bringing new and delicious ones to our homes.
Changes and Growth
In the Late 1970's the company merged with a group of share holders, who would invest more money in it and make it grow and it did, in less than 10 years its clients doubled and the company started a journey towards becoming international.
When Walter was invited to Colombia in 1945 by a swiss-man, he then recruited his childhood friend Max Bazinger, he agreed to start a business with Goggle and the pair started looking for places to start their very first factory.
Alpina started growing and getting more famous around Sopo and its nearby places. Instead of having to go around on foot with a trolley, the duo had the chance to buy their very own truck.
Max Goggle had always had the dream of making his own business, so when the opportunity was given to him by his grandfather, he didn't hesitate. The whole family migrated to Ecuador, given the war situation in Europe
The duo was fascinated by Sopo's landscapes and it was there where they decided their company would be located. They bought a big house where they started making cheese artisanally.
The Giant is born
Goggle was the one to design the Alpina logo, one day he stamped it in a cheese in green ink, and ever since that day the logo hasn't changed much.
After this in the 1950's the demand for the company was so high, the duo had to take out a credit from the bank and buy new land for a more innovative facility,
A Swiss dream made come true in Colombia
