Christoph Premm was born in 1974 in Salzburg, Austria. Inspired by his parents' butchery business, he attended the Higher Technical School for Food Technology in Hollabrunn.
After completing his military service, Christoph entered the dairy industry at Kärntnermilch reg.Gen.m.b.H. in Spittal/Drau, where he assisted with the initial ISO 9001 certification and gained his first experience in the company laboratory. After brief detours into the meat trade and brewing industry, he returned to the dairy industry in 2002.
He started out at Pinzgau Milch Produktions GmbH in Maishofen/Salzburg as Head of Product Development and QM/QA. This involved developments for national/international customers, especially in the area of UHT beverages, as well as the first IFS certification. During this time, Christoph successfully completed a General Management course at the University of Salzburg Business School & SMC.
He gained further experience in product development at NÖM AG in Baden and at Meggle AG in Wasserburg am Inn. His activities there included the management of trials abroad (Slovakia, Croatia, Albania), development work for the Meggle brand and private labels as well as the management of pilot trials in the Technical Centre in Wasserburg.
In 2013 Christoph moved to Milchwerke Mittelelbe GmbH in Stendal (Krüger Group) as team leader for the development of liquid products, where he and his team made a significant contribution to growth in the area of fully aseptic bottling. The focus here was on the product segment comprising protein shakes and vegan shakes.
As of October 2021, Christoph Premm has been Application & Sales Manager at C.H. Erbslöh Ges. m. b. H., responsible for the further development of the group’s food ingredients brand “innotaste” in the Central Europe region.
