WORLD'S TOP CHEESEMAKER
André Besnier made his first camembert in 1933. Cheesemaker first and foremost, the Lactalis Group is continuing its growth and strengthening its leadership. It remains number one in France, with a large range of cheeses from the most traditional Protected Designations of Origin, to the most general. Bolstered by this know-how and its growth worldwide, the Lactalis Group contributes to promoting French gastronomy beyond its border by exporting its cheese and the President brand in particular, which is sold in 160 countries. In the same way, its Galbani brand is the leader in Italian cheeses, marketed in 140 countries.
The Lactalis Group respects local cheesemaking traditions, reinforcing these everywhere where it has production sites. Two such examples are twarog, emblematic in Eastern European countries, and kajmak in Serbia.
