Óvártej Cheese Factory

The history of cheese making in Óvár with more than one century past is closely interwoven with the history of Magyar Királyi Tejgazdasági Állomás (Hungarian Royal Dairy Station) established in 1903 and Magyar Tejgazdasági Kísérleti Intézet (Hungarian Dairy Experimental Institute).
