> To guarantee consumers safe, high-quality milk and dairy products that are manufactured in a carefully controlled process.

Olivier Athimon, General Director of Eurial: "We are a cooperative group; we know better than others where our milk comes from, and how it is produced. Our organisation and resources allow us to control, and check, every stage in the transformation of milk. In this way, we can guarantee our consumers dairy products that are safe, and of high quality."

  • Respect for the environment, through the rational use of resources

4 cooperatives in Western France: our foundations

In order to secure their outlets, the farmers of all four cooperatives (Colarena Presqu'île, la Laiterie Coopérative du Pays de Gâtine, UCAL and Poitouraine) come together within Eurial.
