Lactalis South Africa
Lactalis South Africa is the new name for Parmalat SA. The name change came into effect on 1 February 2020.
This is a name change only and Lactalis SA remains home to quality and trusted brands such as Parmalat, Melrose, Président, SteriStumpie, Bonnita, PureJoy, Galbani, and Aylesbury. These familiar brands hold strong positions across several dairy product categories, ranging from cheese, yoghurt, milk, and custard, to flavoured milk, cream, drinking yoghurt, maas, fruit beverages, butter and ice cream.
The Lactalis Group is a family-led company guided by a passion for dairy that was founded in 1933 by André Besnier in Laval in the west of France, the heart of French dairy country. Parmalat SA had been part of the international Lactalis family group since the Lactalis Group acquired a majority share in Parmalat SA in 2011.
The Lactalis Group took 100% control in 2019 and the local name change to Lactalis South Africa was the final step towards fully integrating the South African business with its international parent company that has a rich history and tradition in bringing the enjoyment of dairy products into people’s lives.
The Lactalis Group is the world’s number one dairy group with 250 production sites in 50 countries and more than 90 000 team members in 94 countries. In South Africa the international Lactalis Group legacy and knowledge merges with local dairy know-how passion that has provided jobs and wholesome dairy products in South Africa since the early 1900s.
