Our approach to responsibility and sustainability


LACTALIS Ingredients has formalized its approach to responsibility and sustainability, which integrates economic, social and environmental dimensions and societal aspects of its activity.

The history of Lactalis is closely linked to that of rural areas and it is on a daily basis that our family business has been expressing its sense of responsibility and sustainability for more than 85 years. Our primary responsibility is to ensure the sustainability of our business through economic performance, which alone can preserve our independence and freedom of action in the long term. We know that these performances will be sustainable  if they contribute to an agricultural transition that allows producers to live with dignity and the population to have access to healthy food, while protecting together our common good: nature. To achieve this, we set ambitious objectives in the following areas:

Quality and nutritional value

Food safety

Animal welfare

Health and safety

Employment and local development

Responsible procurement

Training and skills development

Water resource protection

Carbon footprint

For each issue, we have defined the company’s responsibility, the corresponding commitments and initiatives, as well as the progress indicators. This Framework is the guide for our action.
