From the Great West of France to the international marketplace
The international market is one of our priorities for consumer product sales.
Within the framework of developing and promoting our product offer, we acquired London-based Marathon Food Ltd. in spring 2021. This distributor of Mediterranean foodstuffs is the exclusive supplier of halloumi to Eurilait. Halloumi is a type of cheese for grilling, made in Cyprus and very popular on the British market.
By buying Marathon Food Ltd., we have secured the supply of halloumi for Eurilait and reinforced the future development of the sector. It’s one way of opening up our cheese offer to international markets
Chaque marché a ses spécificités
Each market has its own peculiarities. Consequently, Laïta has had to adapt its product ranges and the reputation of its brands to its various subsidiaries in Europe (Eurilait, Laïta Italia, Iber Conseil and Marathon Food Ltd), to our overseas departments and regions and for export to Laïta branches in Rungis, New Caledonia, Polynesia, China, Thailand, Côte-d’Ivoire, Vietnam and La Réunion.
In spite of the worldwide health crisis, new trade flows were also opened in Panama and Uruguay in 2021, and Paysan Breton expanded further in Europe with the launch of the Paysan Breton Luxurious Cream Cheese range in the UK.

Dialogue with stakeholders
Dialogue with our stakeholders is an integral part of our Passion du Lait® strategy; a strategy that involves listening to their expectations and developing commitments jointly.
We didn’t wait for local traceability to come into fashion before we made our production 100% Breton.
Contributing to the regional economy
Our milk collection, processing and enhancement activities contribute to the development of the social and economic development of the Great West region of France. Contributing to local employment and investment is a founding principle of our raison d’être.
Cooperation as a modus operandi
Cooperation between the teams at our three member cooperatives is part of our shared agenda; cooperation that’s embedded in our governance and in our Passion du Lait® commitments.
