History of the company

DeLaval in brief

Imagine a world without milk. No latté, no cappuccino, no croissants. No fresh milk, yoghurt, crème fraiche or butter. No cheese – no mozzarella, brie, pecorino or Stilton, no feta, chèvre, cheddar or Bavarian bleu. No ice cream, no pizza. How could we live a civilized life without milk? Fortunately, we don't have to.


A global company

DeLaval operates in more than 100 markets and caters to customers with livestock size ranging from 1 to 50,000 animals. DeLaval constantly strives to improve the daily work for all dairy producers, empowering them to control their business and lifestyles by providing complete solutions and service.

For more than 125 years, DeLaval has been driving progress in milk production; ever since the visionary Gustaf de Laval patented the cream separator. Today, DeLaval is one of three companies in the Tetra Laval Group – a private group that started in Sweden. The two other companies are Tetra Pak and Sidel.
