Buchen Kozyak Is a private company established in 1983 by the married couple Branko and Stojka Stojkovski, who have decided to start with obtaining milk from local farmers and produce dairy products. Initial volumes were quite modest, but as time passed quantities grew gradually. From the very beginning until today what founders set as the base of their work, after their death continued by their successors and gradually turned into the mission of the company, and so everyone involved starting from the management as well as the employees have continuously strived to produce natural and high quality dairy products that meet the needs of consumers and thereby enabling consumption of healthy products which have been produced in traditional way. The clear vision of what they want, which was:


The natural taste of the products is what made the dairy recognizable in the choosy market. The long years of existence of Buchen Kozyak speak for themselves for the good working discipline in the company, which has been recognized and rewarded by the customers. What makes Buchen Kozyak an established brand is the production of top quality milk products which are made with a successful combination of traditional knowledge and the latest technological trends in a creative work atmosphere.

Buchen Kozyak pursues its policy of controlled quality, devotedly working on fulfillment of goals set and aspiring towards improvement of its production facilities and personnel.

Confirmation of this effort is the numerous awards, acknowledgements and letters of gratitude received from many institutions and independent agencies which analyze the market.

In their production variety are included the following dairy products:

Liquid products:

The distribution of end products is performed in collaboration with external collaborators distributors, fitted with appropriate means of transport and which daily perform ambulatory delivery to retail facilities (large chains of stores, small retail buildings, restaurants etc).

The fact that designation of products has existed since the very beginning of the existence of the market is a sufficient indicator of the brand importance. It is a prism through which customers see a company, products and services and thus create their own opinion about it. Starting from the fact that the brand is everything tangible and intangible that is created in the mind of a customer with a thought about a product, the creation of a strong and recognizable brand is an imperative of every company. The brand itself creates a story for the customers and when they find themselves in it, they want to become a part of it. These are added values because of which a customer makes decision when buying a product. The path on which Buchen Kozyak has transformed into an untouchable, intangible and corporate ownership from a simple symbol is really long and filled with various obstacles. Thirty-two year existence in the Macedonian market shows that customers have found themselves in our story and they are satisfied with what Buchen Kozyak offers. Their values were set at the very beginning of the brand creation and their whole attention has since been focused on quality of products and authenticity of their taste inherent to Macedonian territory and tradition.
