We are a global full-service supplier to dairy farmers and other professional food producers. We develop, manufacture and distribute equipment and complete systems for milk production and animal husbandry. Services, accessories, knowledge sharing and consultancy are also key aspects of our operations.
Our focus on supporting farmers goes back to when we were founded more than 130 years ago in Sweden. This was when the visionary Gustaf de Laval patented the cream separator. Today we have 4,500 employees of more than 50 nationalities. We are represented in more than 100 markets. Our factories, R&D Units and 35 Sales Offices are spread across every continent. We have, in recent years, grown our manufacturing capacity in Brazil and in China. DeLaval, alongside Tetra Pak and Sidel, is part of the Tetra Laval Group.
Our work with social and environmental sustainability issues are guided by our Vision, Code of Business Conduct, Environmental Policy, local laws and by sustainability frameworks. Our materiality assessment helps us focus our efforts where they matter most.
