Proven Valio technology for lactose free production

The digestive wellness trend is propelling change in the dairy industry. Now you can boost your milk business with Valio lactose free technology – a solution that makes it possible to launch milk products with superior taste, nutritional benefits and free from lactose without heavy upfront investments.

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 addition to producing these lactose free consumer dairy products and lactose free milk ingredients Valio also offers technology licensing for the production of superior tasting 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.
