UAB Varėnos pienelis’ main business activity is dairy processing exclusively from high quality milk. High-quality dairy products are based on high-quality raw materials and veterinary, sanitary and food safety requirements complying with the manufacturing process. Increased competitiveness of the enterprise will be stimulated by modernising the dairy plant using new technology and innovation aiming at higher value products and improved product quality.
