Valio – Pioneer in Lactose Free Dairy

Valio – Pioneer in Lactose Free Dairy

We at Valio can break the common misconception that because a product is lactose free it might also be flavour free.

Consider a myth well and truly busted – you can have taste, and well-being too! Valio is a pioneer in developing lactose free dairy products – in fact, we were the first in the world to develop a totally lactose free milk in 2001.

Today, Valio is the world’s leading expert in lactose free dairy with a unique patented technology which enables Valio lactose free milk to taste just like regular milk.

With more than 100 products, Valio’s lactose free range is now the largest lactose free portfolio in the world covering much more than just milk and cheese, for example.

Valio lactose free dairy is based on clean Finnish milk

“Valio lactose free products have their roots in pure Finnish nature. Our milk is one of the purest in the world, thanks to healthy cows, and it comes from family owned farms in Finland,” explains Category Business Manager Mira Appelqvist.

After more than two decades of product development and marketing know-how, Valio now presents a wide array of lactose free products for international markets: from milk powders to milk drinks and soup; from a brand new Barista-style milk for coffee lovers to cream that’s ideal for cooking and baking.

For export, Valio is uniquely positioned to offer tailored products depending on the market; for example, a requirement for longer shelf life and different kinds of packaging, which Valio can cater for.
