Lallemand Specialty Cultures

From starter to surface and ripening, Lallemand has over 100 years of experience in dairy culture fermentation. In 1933, the Rosell Institute, a Canadian subsidiary, was a pioneer in the development of the first freeze-dried yogurt culture in North America. Equilait, a French subsidiary acquired in 1988, has produced cultures for the French Cheesemakers since 1940. The descendant of Laboratoire G. Roger, a production site located at La Ferté-sous-Jouarre, France was acquired in 2016 expanding Lallemand’s expertise to surface and ripening cultures for meat, dairy applications.

LSC provides a full range of dairy, meat, and plant-based solutions, bringing unique appearance, color, flavor and texture for competitive advantages.
