Founded in 1855, this small family-run business has became one of the leading dairy producers in South America while still being run by its founders' fourth-generation descendants.
Magnasco's cows are fed year-round on natural green pastures highly suitable for top-quality dairy production of international acclaim. The company produces an average of 75,000 liters of milk every day. Magnasco uses milk exclusively from its own dairy farms. In this way, quality and consistency of the product can be assured at every single stage of the process.
