Cooperative Laitiere de la Sevre (CLS) is a small cooperative located in Nouvelle Aquitaine (France) and integrated by 128 milk producers. The cooperative produces a large range of hand-ladle moulded cheeses and A.O.C. butters (cow and goat).

Created and run by local people, it has remained faithful to tradition while constantly adapting to advances in technology. In France today, CLS is recognised as a successful company but its name also transcends national boundaries, and its innovation in soft goat cheese, for example, as well as in more traditional products, has allowed it to enter the wider European market.

CLS has participated in the European PEF Dairy Pilot of the European Commission and coordinated by the European Dairy Association (EDA) as member of the Technical Secretariat.

CLS produces 38.000.000 litres/year of bulk milk, 1.200 tonnes/year of cheese and 2.100 tonnes/year of butter.
