French dairy co-operative Laïta has unveiled an €80 million investment programme to expand its production capacity in dry dairy ingredients.

The two year development plan involves the installation of new industrial equipment at Laïta sites in Finistère, Côtes d’ Armor and Loire-Atlantique.

Overall, the investment will expand Laïta’s milk processing capacity by 15%.

Founded in 2009, Laïta is an umbrella organisation representing the dairy activities of the Even, Terrena and Triskalia co-operatives in north-west France, and is one of Europe’s ten leading dairy co-operatives.

The investment plan is at the heart of the co-operative’s mission: to provide sustainable opportunities for production at the 3,750 farms that supply Laïta with milk and to contribute to the long-term development of the region.
