About Celia®

The Celia® brand is more than 90 years old. It originated in the North West of France in a family dairy, whose founder’s wife was called Alice. Celia®, is an anagram derived from Alice.


In 1963, the commissioning of a milk drying tower marked the beginning of the production of powdered milk. From the 1980s, Celia® expanded internationally into Africa, in the Maghreb and the Middle East and Asia.

Our Commitments

Maximum safety beyond regulatory requirements

We guarantee the verification, at least, of 2 times more products than imposed by the regulations, for certain specific germs (cronobacters and salmonella).

These controls are performed by several independent laboratories, both private and public, accredited by official authorities and featuring different analytical methods, to maximize the reliability of results.

The sampling of products intended for analytical controls benefits from an advanced and automated technology throughout the manufacturing process (of each of our batches.)

With the aim of guaranteeing a perfect independence of the results, the test samples are submitted to the different laboratories in order to maintain a constant vigilance level.
