Lactalis, the French dairy giant, is investing $2.6 million to expand production in Bosnia and Herzegovina, according to a Food Business Africa report.
In a statement, the firm said the 788 sq m facility was expected to increase milk manufacturing capacity by 16%, allowing it to bolster production of its Dukat and Alpsko Mleko brands.
Lactalis’s Bosnia and Herzegovina subsidiary reportedly processes over 45 million litres of milk per year, with half of the finished products destined for export.
The firm is also said to be eyeing up a further €1.3 million ($1.4 million) in the facility in 2024 to boost production capacity for yoghurt.
Lactalis is described as being present in Bosnia and Herzegovina since 2007, after its purchase of local dairy firm Inmer. Its other brands in the country include President, Galbani, Domace Blago and Dar Prirode.
