Health and well-being benefits
Since its creation in 1965, Yoplait has been supplying products to the UK and European market, using 100% French milk from our Sodiaal farmers. Today, we have three production sites and one R&D centre in France.
Le Mans (F-72)
And an R&D centre in Vienne (F-38). Our French head office is located in Boulogne-Billancourt (F-92).
An historic Yoplait site for the last 55 years (since 1967)
Every year our Le Mans site receives 130,000,000 litres of fresh milk directly from the region’s farms. It is turned into delicious yoghurts and dispatched by the site’s 310 qualified employees (process operators, packers, case-packers, order pickers, fork-lift truck operators, warehouse staff, maintenance technicians, schedulers, HR, managers, supervisors, computer scientists) who are 100% focused on creating the best quality, best tasting products.
This site alone produces over 3,600,000 pots of yoghurt every day.
Built on a 12-hectare site in 1964, the Vienne factory has a milk-processing capacity of 150 million litres of milk per annum and employs 270 people experience in various fields: milk production and processing, maintenance, production scheduling, logistics and quality. It has two processing halls (the “yoghurt” production unit and the “fresh cheese and desserts” production unit) with 16 packaging lines that produce several of our flagship products such as Panier de Yoplait, Frulos, Petits Filous tubes and, more recently, the “Liberté” brand gourmet yogurts.
Every year, we produce more than 110,000 tonnes of products (some of our lines can produce 50,000 pots of yoghurt per hour) for the French market and other European markets such as the United Kingdom, the Benelux countries, Ireland, Sweden, etc.).
For several years, the factory has been taking steps to reduce its environmental impact and improve its energy efficiency. To this end, in 2021 Yoplait and ENGIE Solutions started setting up a waste-heat recovery plant enabling the heating of a zone within Vienne by recycling energy available from the Yoplait production process.
Built in 1968, the Monéteau site has 230 employees who produce 4.8 million pots and bottles every day. These include Yop drinking yoghurt and Petits Filous fromage frais.
