Parmalat SA becomes Lactalis South Africa

Lactalis South Africa is the new name for Parmalat SA as of 1 February 2020. This is a name change only, and it will not impact the company’s existing products, brands or business operations.

Parmalat SA has been been part of the international Lactalis family for the past nine years since the Lactalis Group bought Parmalat in 2011.

The local name change to Lactalis South Africa is the final step towards fully integrating the South African business with its international parent company.

Lactalis South Africa will remain the home of quality and trusted brands such as Parmalat, Melrose, Président and SteriStumpie, as well as Bonnita, PureJoy, Galbani, and Aylesbury.

These familiar brands hold strong positions across several dairy product categories, ranging from cheese, yoghurt, milk, and custard, to flavoured milk, cream, drinking yoghurt, maas, fruit beverages, butter and ice cream.

The Lactalis Group is the world’s number one dairy group with 250 production sites in 50 countries and more than 90 000 employees in 94 countries.

Marek Warzywoda, Lactalis South Africa general manager (below), says: ‘The change of name in South Africa is an exciting step for the local dairy industry. It shows that our global dairy group has confidence in the business opportunities in this region.

‘We are committed to our quality products under our well-known local and global brands.

“Locally the roots of this business go back to the early 1900s. This accumulated South African expertise now joins forces with a proud French family heritage also dating back to the early 1900s.’

Although the company name has changed, the existing company registration number, VAT number, banking details, site addresses, and telephone numbers remain the same.
