How it all began…


Emco company was founded by Zdeněk Jahoda in 1990.

At the beginning Emco was engaged in exporting and importing of various food. Czech consumers meanwhile took the greatest liking to cereals, which until then had been practically unknow on the Czech market.

The first cereals were being produced and imported from Germany under German brands.

It was in the year 1994 when the brand Emco appeared on the Czech market. Name Emco being a compound word of „Em“ (pronunciation of the letter M, after his son Martin) and „co“ (as a company).

Since 1998 Emco makes its own products in the Czech Republic,

Zdeněk Jahoda started baking the first muesli in an ordinary kitchen oven. In these days a production is professional. The oat flakes come from Czech farmers and are processed in Emco’s own mill in southern Bohemia.

Today Emco is a leader on the domestic market and exports to more than 50 countries all over the world.

During time more products were added to the Emco portfolio – oatmeals, biscuits, bars and others.
