Lactogal is a Portuguese food products company focused on dairy products, milk, fruit juice and mineral water. It is headquartered in Porto and is placed among the twenty largest agro-food European companies. It has major factories in Oliveira de Azeméis and Vila do Conde.


It was founded in 1996 by the fusion between the three largest Portuguese companies in the sector: AGROS - União das Cooperativas de Produtores de Leite Entre Douro e o Minho e Trás-os-Montes, UCRL (headquartered in Vila do Conde); LACTICOOP - União das Cooperativas de Produtores de Leite entre Douro e Mondego, UCRL (headquartered in Aveiro); and PROLEITE/MIMOSA S.A. (headquartered in Oliveira de Azeméis). The company acquired the Spanish company "Leche Celta" in 2006, and as of 2007, Lactogal is planning to complete before 2010 a new factory in Oliveira de Azeméis.
