Our Story | Why DeLaval Exists & What We Strive To Achieve | DeLaval
We take it for granted that milk makes
superfoods. It’s your day’s intake of a
whole range of vitamins and minerals. It’s protein.
It’s energy. So you might think a kilo of cheese isn’t
all that important, but it is. The world’s population is growing and
we don’t know how to feed everyone. If we really want to be serious about this
we need to look at high nutrition foods. Milk and milk products are among those foods
and at Delaval we need to constantly work to make sure it’s produced more efficiently. And this isn’t just a matter of us doing
business, it’s a matter of sustainability. How can we do more with less? Every time we help a farmer find a way to
produce more milk from the same herd: we’re making food
production more sustainable. By introducing a new
working method on the farm. A new parlor. Better liners. Better hygiene.
Better data to make better decisions. Like cutting disease & keeping cows healthier
by increasing their milking lifetime. Every time we do that,
we help farmers do more with less. Every time we do that, we’re moving on
the road to more sustainable food production. And we’ll never stop. We can stop.
Innovation is in our blood. It’s been in our blood since Gustav Delaval
patented the centrifugal cream separator back in 1878. That’s almost 140 years of continuous
knowledge accumulating year after year. Changing how we do things.
Innovating to make them better. We’re the market leader and a trusted partner
for thousands of farmers around the world. There is four and a half thousand of us
serving over 100 countries. Add to that a thousand dealers selling our
products and advising farmers across the world to make the best
decisions with their farms. And then there’s the farmers Millions of farmers around the world. A lot of livelihoods.
A lot of people depending on milk to live. We are farmers too you know. We know a thing or two about
the challenges and the charms on the ground, in the field. It gives us an edge that helps us lead,
it helps us innovate. In short:
We live milk.
