Granarolo logoThe Granarolo group - Bologna is headed up by Granlatte Soc. Coop. Agricola. Together they form the most important Italian milk producer directly owned by farmers who are members of the cooperative. The Group closed 2011 with a turnover of approximately €849 million and has 6 manufacturing plants distributed throughout the national territory, 2,083 employees, and 1,200 refrigerator trucks for distribution.

Granlatte works to promote and develop the aggregation of agro-livestock dairies operating in Italy. It also works to improve production quality through organizational structures capable of managing the business efficiently and effectively.

Granarolo, based in Bologna with plants all over Italy, is the Italian market leader for industrial-scale fresh milk and milk products - organic dairy and is one of the leading players in the market of UHT milk (2nd largest market share), yogurt (3rd) and fresh cheeses (2nd). The plants supply the Group’s direct and

indirect distribution centers, and every day, approximately 60,000 points of sale are served. The market is mainly domestic. The Group's products are also present in foreign markets in Europe, North America and Japan. Granarolo takes an integrated approach to quality policies, reconciling economic, environmental, and ethical objectives along the entire food chain, from the farm to the consumer's table. About three decades ago, it began with the strategic option of high quality and today has reached a high point with certification for traceability, quality, environment, health and safety in the workplace. For some time directly involved in the issue of climate change and GHG emissions in the sector, in Climate ChangE-R, the Group deals with all aspects of the fresh milk supply chain.
