LATTERIA DI LIVIGNO
La Latteria nasce nel 1954 come latteria turnaria. I contadini, a rotazione, si occupavano della raccolta del latte e della sua lavorazione per ottenere burro e formaggio.

The Tourist Dairy
Latteria di Livigno
Up to just over 50 years ago, the Livigno valley was completely isolated during the winter period. Until that time, the basis of subsistence for the inhabitants of our valley was livestock products: meat, wool, and especially milk. Reaching on foot to neighbouring Switzerland or Valtellina, butter and cheese were exchanged for other essential goods, such as flour and salt.
Since ancient times, cheese and butter have been the mainstays of the economy in this Alpine village, one of the highest in Europe.
Still in 2023, Latteria di Livigno offers its products to all Livigno citizens and tourists who want to taste real alpine milk and its related products.
After the beginning of the construction in May 2005, the new Tourist Dairy took shape, and started its new production activity on 6th July 2006.
In this building, the Cooperative’s administrators wanted to combine in the best possible way the two elements that always held up our valley, that is to say agriculture and tourism, which represent the fundamental resource for the development of Livigno’s community.
