Lactogal is a Portuguese food products company focused on dairy products, milk, fruit juice and mineral water. It is headquartered in Porto and is placed among the twenty largest agro-food European companies. It has major factories in Oliveira de Azeméis and Vila do Conde.

History[edit]

It was founded in 1996 by the fusion between the three largest Portuguese companies in the sector: AGROS - União das Cooperativas de Produtores de Leite Entre Douro e o Minho e Trás-os-Montes, UCRL (headquartered in Espaço Agros in Póvoa de Varzim; founded in 1949); LACTICOOP - União das Cooperativas de Produtores de Leite entre Douro e Mondego, UCRL (headquartered in Aveiro; founded in 1962); and PROLEITE/MIMOSA S.A. (headquartered in Oliveira de Azeméis; founded in 1973). The company acquired the Spanish company Leche Celta in 2006, and in 2007, Lactogal was planning to complete before 2010 a new factory in Oliveira de Azeméis.[1]
