Benefits of Valio FAST TRACK™

Valio FAST TRACK™ technology – added value to dairy milk business without heavy upfront capital investment

Valio Eila® lactose free technology was first applied in 2001 to produce the world’s first truly lactose free milk drink. It contains less than 0.01% lactose yet tastes exactly like regular milk. The product hit its first-year sales target in just two months.

In order to start producing lactose free milk, you can either license the full technology for higher milk volumes or go for Valio FAST TRACK™, a technology solution that offers an easy start without high capital investment. The licensing agreement package gives licensees access to the patented production technology, analytical methods and complete current expertise related to the production of excellent tasting lactose free milks. In addition, Valio supports licensees by sharing its go-to-market knowledge and marketing communications experience. This model is already in use in several different markets globally with proven efficiency.

The growing lactose free market offers opportunities from price premium to developing products with concrete consumer benefits linked to digestive wellness. By licensing the patented Valio FAST TRACK™ technology solution it is easy to start the production of lactose free milk: fresh, ESL and UHT products. This special technology enables food manufacturers to launch lactose free milk without immediate capital investment – it truly lives up to its name! All of this is achieved without manufacturers having to compromise on the authentic fresh taste or nutritional value of regular milk.
