From Our Land to the Land of All

We discover our inspiration in the most beautiful landscapes of Azores. Visit our land through an experience of traditional and genuine flavours: from the legendary flavour of the São Jorge PDO Cheese, which goes back to the occupation of the island of São Jorge by the Flemish community, to the purest milk that comes directly from the Azorean pastures to your table, not forgetting the delicious Ilha Azul Soft Cheese produced on the beautiful island of Faial.  

Always respecting nature, we create the best dairy products, with milk from cows that animate the paradisiacal landscapes of our islands, and using the most advanced technology.

We bring to your table the most pure and traditional dairy products of the islands of São Miguel, São Jorge, Faial and Pico, made of genuine Azorean knowledge and flavour and according to high food safety parameters.

History

History

LactAçores was created in 2004, with the purpose of enhancing the origin of Azorean dairy products, joining renowned Azorean cooperatives and working in synergy.

LactAçores is composed by the union of three cooperatives: Unileite, Uniqueijo and CALF. Subsequently, LactAcores assumed the management of the Leite Montanha cooperative, located in the island of Pico. We exclusively commercialize dairy products produced by cooperatives, such as milk, cream, cheese and butter.

Since its formation, LactAçores has distinguished itself by its emphasis on the quality of the products it markets, where a strict system of quality and safety control allows us to be recognized as suppliers of products of excellence. We believe in the quality of our products that comes mainly from our Azorean origin, our respect for nature and giving the best of Azorean nature to those we love.

We want the brands we sell to be a part of the daily life of all families, in various contexts of consumption.
