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.


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]
