Lactalis Ingredients: a passion for dairy ingredients

The Lactalis Employer Brand had pride of place in 2021. On days that were specially organised for the occasion, each of Lactalis Ingredients division’s sites were able to share their enthusiasm for dairy-ingredient professions.
In all, 10 production sites and 60% of employees were involved over a full day to explain their role within the Lactalis Ingredients division. A simple, yet genuine opportunity for social interaction with colleagues and families. A unique occasion to celebrate the history of the Lactalis family together.

Each one of them was keen to bring their profession to life through historical and current testimonies, games, tastings, films, competitions, educational workshops, and so on.

Human beings are always at the heart of these events, with each one being more varied and original than the last:

  • Escape Game in Saint Florent
  • Educational training in Mayenne around a miniature dryer loaned by the Verdun Lycée Agricole
  • Small fête at the Verdun site in collaboration with local authorities and partners
  • Maritime logistics game in Bourgbarré
  • Visit of the Vimoutiers site
  • Tasting session on the ‘sentier des saveurs (taste trail)’ in Retiers
  • Photo competition
  • Open days for families


The proof is in the pictures


These days made it possible for everyone to highlight their Lactalis experience based on common values such as sharing and commitment. Our sites’ strong territorial and historic foothold and the teams’ enthusiasm and expertise have left their mark. A wave of positivity that will help us tackle new challenges together in 2022.
