Our Corporate History

This brief history traces the evolution and growth of LACTOSAN-SANOVO Ingredients Group from its modest beginnings in Odense - the city of Hans Christian Andersen, the world famous fairy tale writer.

The origin of LACTOSAN-SANOVO Ingredients Group date back to the 1940's when we were pioneers in our field of business. Today we are privately owned by the Stadil family (3rd generation) and we have turned into a successful and global group and market leaders in the cheese and egg powder business for the global food industry.

We have realised sustained profitable growth and operations established in strategically important areas of the world.
