25 years of Leche Celta: cooperation with SIG Combibloc right from the start

Spanish dairy company celebrates its anniversary - 'Leche Celta helps you grow'

Linnich, (lifePR) - It is one of the giants of Spain's dairy industry: the Leche Celta dairy. This year the company, which is now part of the Lactogal Group, celebrates 25 years in the business. Right from the start, Leche Celta and SIG Combibloc have had a close partnership. Leche Celta packages around 75 per cent of its annual milk production in aseptic carton packs from SIG Combibloc, on a total of 12 filling machines. For the anniversary, the two companies are jointly taking stock. Celta and SIG Combibloc - that belongs together.

'Leche Celta te ayuda a crecer' ('Leche Celta helps you grow') is Leche Celta's anniversary slogan. And the partnership between Leche Celta and SIG Combibloc has grown and flourished as well. Leche Celta was founded in 1989, and within just a few years the company had moved into a strong position in Spain's dairy sector. Today the 'Celta' brand is the number 4 in the Spanish dairy market. And Leche Celta is also very successful as a manufacturer and filler of private label products which are sold all over the Iberian Peninsula.

José Caeiro Passinhas, President of Executive Committee, at Leche Celta: "In our Spanish factories in A Coruña, Cantabria and Avila, we process around 400 million litres of milk each year. Our mission is to offer premium dairy products that are tailored to the needs of consumers. For us, this includes not only providing top-quality products, but also offering packaging solutions that go perfectly with the consumer's lifestyle. In this respect, we've found a reliable partner in SIG Combibloc. The filling machines from SIG Combibloc enable us to keep production fast, flexible and, last but not least, cost-effective, as well. Thanks to the product flexibility of the filling machines from SIG Combibloc, we can easily bring out not only classic UHT milk products, but also beverage innovations such as combinations of milk and fruit". Leche Celta's product range, which mainly includes various types of premium UHT milk, fruit & milk mix drinks and cream, is high on the popularity scale with Spanish and Portuguese consumers.

Victor Cordoba, Head of Cluster Europe South at SIG Combibloc: "Leche Celta is an extremely committed and forward-looking partner, characterised in equal measure by high quality standards and a taste for innovation. As a technologically advanced company, Leche Celta has state-of-the-art filling machines in operation, so it covers the full spectrum of possible package sizes from small format to family size, right up to the 2-litre large-format carton pack. Leche Celta was the first dairy in Spain to bring out the large-format 1,500 and 2,000 ml carton sizes, and even today the company is a pioneer in the 2-litre sector".

Leche Celta helps you grow

The anniversary slogan 'Leche Celta helps you grow' could not have been a more apt choice. Because it refers not just to the many premium dairy products whose beneficial ingredients contribute every day to the good health of consumers - especially the healthy growth of children. As a leading private label manufacturer in Spain, Leche Celta has also succeeded in growing along with its customers. "And we can carry this shared growth across to the partnership between Leche Celta and SIG Combibloc as well", says Victor Cordoba with obvious satisfaction.

The Lactogal Group, of which Leche Celta is now a part, processes around 1,500 million litres of milk annually, making it the leader on the Iberian Peninsula.
