At Valfoo, we can talk about dairy ‘til the cows come home. That’s because for us, it’s a family thing.
Our father, Dieter Krayl, was in the dairy industry all his life. He worked in all areas of the industry in Southern Germany – processing, production, innovating new products – you name it, he did it, from managing the drying plans where they made whey derivatives to meeting farmers in the fields.
Dairy was a regular topic of conversation around our dining table growing up, so it was probably inevitable we would enter the dairy industry, too. While our father’s passion and commitment to the dairy industry led him on an interesting path, we were following our own, heading East to live and study in the fast-growing markets of Hong Kong and Shanghai.
After finishing university in 2009, the idea for Valfoo was born. Connecting our family’s legacy in Europe’s dairy industry with our time spent in Asia, we saw an opportunity to bring nutritious, delicious dairy food and products from Europe to markets in the East.
Through steady hard work, dedication and selecting partners with shared goals and values, over the years Valfoo has grown into a leading supplier of niche dairy ingredients and products. Today, we’re known for our expertise and strong relationships with suppliers, manufacturers and customers, and trusted around the world as the dairy experts.
We believe in a sustainable dairy industry for a healthy tomorrow and the importance of bringing farm and table ever closer. At Valfoo, we aim to be the leading supplier of niche dairy ingredients and products that benefit customers around the world.
Mindful of people, animals and the environment, we use innovative technologies, new ideas and sophisticated supply chains to offer our customers the best quality and ensure a bright future for the dairy industry.
This is our promise: fresh, delicious, sustainable dairy that takes the best of nature and nurtures it with innovation.
High quality in any final product starts by selecting the best raw materials, and only happy animals can produce nutritious milk. All animals at our farms in Europe are cared for by qualified farmers with the highest possible degree of animal welfare. We care our valuable materials and try our best to minimize any food waste, through intelligent technology and strict control in the entire supply chain.
Valfoo truly believes that technology and innovation can create new opportunities. Throughout the years, we have built strategic and sustainable partnerships with a numerous of ultra-modern plants. We thrive on continuous improvement by constantly being up to date on the latest market trends and state-of-the-art technologies. We are proud to have Valfoo’s laboratories as the birthplace of many of our innovative products.
People are the heart of our business and passion is the fuel that inspires and drives people to stay one step ahead. We strive to treat our farmers, partners, staff and stakeholders with respect and fairness. We continuously pursue growth and keep strengthening our professional services such as R&D, Sales & Marketing, and logistics to offer a fully integrated supply chain.
