GROUPE LACTALIS / LACTALIS INDIA
Lactalis is a family-owned dairy group based in Laval (Mayenne), in the west of France.
In 1933, André Besnier started up his cheese-making company. On the first day he collected 17 litres of milk and produced 35 camemberts: the Besnier company was in business. Since then, the group, which adopted the more international name of Lactalis in 1999, has continued to expand rapidly.
Its range of products has grown considerably (cheeses, milk, cream, butter, ultra-fresh, milk powder, etc.), as has the reputation of its products. Lactalis now owns a series of prestigious French and international brands.

Around the world, Lactalis is recognised as having the know-how of a major dairy Group. Present in over one hundred countries, its experience abroad is backed up by a professionalism that is expressed in both its vast range of products adapted to the expectations of consumers and its logistics know how.
In 2014, Lactalis acquired Thirumala, where it opened up enormous opportunities in the biggest and most challenging dairy market in the world to position it as the most preferred brand in India, followed by Anik in 2016. The traditional and cultural experience of Thirumala & Anik along with the international expertise of Lactalis provided a unique combination, leading to a success story to be talked by generations to come.
