Why work with us?

Our expertise

Engineering performance

With over 60 years of experience in milk and whey processing, LACTALIS Ingredients has unmatched technological expertise and remains at the forefront of the industry. A selection of our historical accomplishments include:

  • Developing the first native whey protein on the market.
  • Creating new technology to optimize drying whey, resulting in the very first production of non-hygroscopic powders (now marketed under the brand FloWhey®).

We value excellence and innovation and are therefore committed to continuously updating our industrial facilities to stay atop of technologies that bring the highest quality production.

In recent years, we have:

  • Built a cutting-edge industrial facility in Retiers (western France) dedicated to the production of lactose and whey protein concentrates/isolates intended for nutritional applications;
  • Expanded our demineralized whey production capabilities at our plant in Verdun (eastern France) and updated our equipment to reach even higher standards.

Ongoing commitment to quality

LACTALIS Ingredients offers our customers full transparency of our supply chain and can ensure complete traceability of all the whey and milk we source and process.

We make sure that the wholesomeness of milk is preserved at every step, from field to consumer, by monitoring the entire value chain. We follow strict procedures and comply with rigorous laws and regulations, as is reflected by our numerous third-party certifications.
