About Lactalis - Meet Lactalis
Founded in France in 1933 by the Besnier family, Group Lactalis is the unifying force behind Europe’s most celebrated family of fine cheese. Here, master cheesemakers combine the traditions they inherited from early Norman dynasties with cutting-edge technology to craft cheese recognized the world over for consistent quality, texture and taste.
This tradition of excellence makes Lactalis the leader in Europe. Now we’ve extended that tradition to you in the United States through Lactalis Foodservice.
