Lactalis invests in Georgian dairy Sante
Sante makes range of dairy products
Lactalis has become a shareholder in Sante, a dairy company in the former Soviet republic of Georgia.
The French dairy giant, which has been making a series of investments in emerging dairy markets, disclosed its move today (3 February).
Latcalis said it had become "one of the largest shareholders" in Sante but did not reveal the size of its stake nor how much it paid for its shareholding.
Sante is "a leader" in Georgia's dairy market, Lactalis said, selling products under brands including Sante, Santino and Santissimo. The company also markets "the only Georgian cheese brand", Sanebo, Lactalis added.
"Becoming one of the largest shareholders of Sante, Lactalis will enable the company to bring Georgian products to world markets, develop local milk and dairy production, and make an important contribution to the development of Georgian economy. Participation of Lactalis in the production of Georgian dairy products will be an important signal for international investors for future investments in Georgia," Lactalis said.
In January of that year, Lactalis entered India, buying local business Tirumala Milk Products.
