Nestled between two rivers – the River Elle and the River Vire which gave their names to the brand, in the heart of Normandy, the Condé-sur-Vire dairy has built the success of the Elle & Vire for over 70 years.
From collecting farm-produced butter, the cooperative gradually progressed to collecting dairy cream to make pasteurised butter, as of 1948. The sale of products made in Condé-sur-Vire spread nationally, with a presence in the covered markets in Paris and the main cities of France.
The Elle & Vire brand has pioneered in many technological fields, enabling it to launch a host of innovations, such as UHT sterilised milk, UHT sterilised cream, dairy desserts and UHT dessert creams, soft butter, etc. That have revolutionised everyday life both for consumers and professional users. Drawing on its Normandy know-how, Elle & Vire can truly claim to epitomise French quality, both among consumers and chefs in more than 120 countries around the world.
