Valio cheese

The international launch of Valio’s world-class premium butter and cheeses for consumers is in full swing and the new products are on show at the Gulfood Exhibition in Dubai, February 2018. Valio has over 110 years of experience in producing dairy products and promoting its export. 

Since 1905, Valio’s master butter makers have been creating the perfect butter from their traditional recipe. The time-honoured recipe that has been passed down through four generations demands that every drop of cream is of the highest possible quality and purity.

Thanks to decades of cheese know-how, Valio is also able to bring our master cheese makers cheeses to new audiences, and continue the heritage of making premium cheese using only the best Finnish milk.

French viennoiserie chefs’ favourite

Valio is one of the major butter suppliers for French professional viennoiserie chefs famous for their world class croissants and pastries. They choose our butter for its consistent quality, texture, purity and rich superior flavour.

Henrik Yli-Seppälä, Head of MENA consumer products sales, says “Valio premium butter is produced to match the tastes customers seek – natural purity, craftsmanship and quality. According to our consumer research, these products are perfect for Middle East cuisine and food culture.”

Creamy cheese flavours

The determination to produce the highest quality milk in the European Union combined with uncompromised craftsmanship makes it possible to produce cheeses that have the delicious creamy taste consumers want.

The Northern environment, clean air and water together with our traceable and transparent supply chain give Valio a distinct competitive edge. Valio’s superior quality farm-fresh milk originates from our Finnish Dairy Co–operative farmers.

“This perfection of taste is entrusted solely to the expertise of Valio’s world-class master craftsmen.  There are no short-cuts in their art and no room for compromise. Each step in the cheese or butter making process is conscientiously performed to celebrate the time-honoured tradition of Finnish craftsmanship that Valio is famous for, “emphasizes Henrik Yli-Seppälä.
