Starting 1936, he produces fermented and melted cheese that he exports to different countries, among them the USA. After nationalization in 1934, Vlad’s workshop turns into The Manufacturing and The Industrialization of Milk Cluj, that, after 1990 is also known as S.C. Napolact S.A. In 2004, Napolact is bought by the Dutch Friesland Foods. In 2009, it merges with Campina, forming FrieslandCampina.
