A FRENCH FLAGSHIP WITH A GLOBAL REACH
From its solid French base, Lactalis is pursuing international growth. The Group is present in 51 countries through 270 creameries and markets its products in 150 countries. Lactalis has developed firstly by consolidating its positions through an organic growth strategy, and secondly by expanding into new countries such as Uzbekistan in 2020 or the Netherlands in 2021.
Lactalis France brings together all the Group’s French business lines: Lactalis Fromages France, Lactalis Beurres et Crèmes France, Lactel, Lactalis Food Service France, Les Vergers de Châteaubourg, Lactalis Ingredients and the joint venture Lactalis–Nestlé Produits Frais. In creating that separate entity in 2021, Lactalis is aiming to keep writing its French story by consolidating its positions whilst continuing its development in its home country. Lactalis sustains 60,000 direct and indirect jobs in France.
