Centro Sperimentale del Latte (CSL) was the first company in Italy to study Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) for human health. It was founded by Dr. Leo Vesely in 1948 with a mission to improve maternal health and children’s nutrition.
Since 2013 CSL is part of Sacco System, the international biotech hub, for food, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical industries; our expertise helps solving consumer needs in more than 110 countries around the world, leveraging on our unique proprietary strains and customised blends.
After more than 70 years, CSL continue to focus on probiotic manufacturing, research and development for nutraceutical and pharmaceutical fields. Our know-how is not limited to LAB, but with our two facilities drug-GMP certified we can support companies in the development, process validation, and commercial production of probiotics, postbiotics, Next-Generation bacteria (obbligate aerobes and anaerobes strains) and biotherapeutics (BPs).
