Partnership between Lactalis & bioMérieux




The Group Lactalis, is a leading worldwide dairy company founded in 1933. It has remained faithful to its original commitment to dairy processing for three generations, whilst leveraging external growth as part of its strategy by capitalizing on and developing its three major brands (Président, Galbani and Parmalat), as well as continuing to invest in local ones.

Maintaining a premium level of food safety & quality across the entire portfolio, is crucial in times of business expansion. The Innovative solutions of tomorrow in the domain of food safety and quality, will offer real-life opportunities for companies like The Group Lactalis.

With this in mind, let’s meet Emmanuel MALLO, VP Quality at Lactalis Group.

1. Sampling is key whilst Prevention owns the value.


To decide on the release of a product, numerous parameters are considered when it comes to sampling: representability, size of the sample, the shortness of the time to result, with the possibility of constantly optimizing and improving.

The limitations of this form of analysis are undoubtedly true as it remains observational (analysis  = success or failure)

The result of the analysis is articulated either as a success or a failure, but it’s already too late by then, the challenge now lies in procuring the information beforehand…

2. Maintaining people’s know how


If we are to ensure food safety & quality without testing finished products, then the skills and knowledge of people need to be placed at the heart of the discussion to get as close as possible to process control.

To have qualified individuals at all times means placing special emphasis on the sharing of best practices

3.Accelerate decision making


Data is generated everywhere and at any time. This perpetual cycle raises the question of getting the best out of data to better share information, to create paperless workflows and capitalize on visual representations, all of which are a good place to start when thinking in terms of trends, helping to accelerate decision making.

I consider a challenge to be speeding up as much as possible the action-decision cycle

4. Unlock in-hand data, generate more to better predict


Dairy products are complex to manufacture. In order to achieve optimal levels of control, numerous components are required. It’s important to generate data in high quantities at a maximum level of frequency, with the analysis carried out by system and data experts to allow us to master the process. In parallel, as we already have a decent amount of data we can get started.

Advanced technologies can ultimately predict changes in complex scenarios
