MEVGAL is a Greek brand of dairy products company, the largest in Northern Greece and the third largest producer of fresh dairy products in the country. Its name is an acronym for Macedonian Milk Industry (Greek: Μακεδονική Βιομηχανία Γάλακτος, ΜΕΒΓΑΛ). It is headquartered in Koufalia in the Thessaloniki regional unit. It manufactures dairy products that include yogurt, cheese and dairy-based deserts which total up to 170 individual products.

MEVGAL was founded in 1950 in Macedonia where 67% of Greece's fresh cow milk is produced. Its workforce consists of around 1,200 people. It purchases its raw products from up to 1,600 local farms based exclusively in Greece's north province of Macedonia. Its main market is through the local Greek outlets but it also exports to 23 countries around the world.

Since 2003 it expanded in the production of fruit juices and fruit drinks.
