Four production sites dedicated to the manufacture of cheeses and one site specialized in the production of white cheeses and yogurts.


In 1969, Jacques and Jacqueline DELIN (parents of Philippe, the current Chair) created the DELIN cheese dairy

From the 1970s onwards, the production of fresh bottled milk and fromage blanc was quickly supplemented by soft cheeses.

In 2019, the cheese factory in Montbéliard was incorporated into the group.

2019 Delin cheese dairy also celebrated its 50th anniversary!
