Lactogal is a Portuguese milk and dairy products company.

History

The company was created in 1996 from the merger of three companies and production cooperatives, namely AGROS – União das Cooperativas de Produtores de Leite Entre Douro e o Minho e Trás-os-Montes UCRL, LACTICOOP – União das Cooperativas de Produtores de Leite entre Douro e Mondego UCRL, and PROLEITE/MIMOSA S.A. Lactogal has subsequently become the market leader in milk and dairy products in Portugal, with brands such as Mimosa, Matinal or Vigor.[2] The company now has 15 sites (seven production units and five logistics and distribution units) in 12 locations in continental Portugal, Madeira and the Azores.

Lactogal products

In 2005, Lactogal had sales of 683.5 million euros; in 2010, the figure was 682 million euros. Through acquisitions and expansion, Lactogal has also strengthened its position in Spain in recent years. In 2008, 14% of sales already came from Spain. The purchase of Spain’s Leche Celta, in particular, has enabled the company to expand in Spain, but it had to sell its Renoldy private label business as a requirement of the regulatory authorities. The company’s goal is to become one of the market leaders on the Iberian Peninsula.[3]
