The secret of successful companies lies in the commitment, knowledge and efficiency of their employees. Lactoprot encourages this by offering the right environment. Excellent working conditions with short hierarchies, good social benefits, fair pay and continued training are all part of it.


From Schleswig-Holstein out into the world
Schleswig-Holstein is the home of Lactoprot and an area where dairying traditionally plays a major role. As a company from the milk processing industry, we are part of this. We sell our products with the seal “Made in Germany” in all the continents. 220 employees ensure that customers and suppliers come to know us as a reliable and innovative partner. In recent years we have expanded vigorously, so we regularly seek both experienced specialists and motivated beginners.

Young people are our future – so we train newcomers specifically and with commitment. Would you, too, like to become part of our group of companies and find out what milk has to do with the production of baked goods or wine? The ability to work in a team, motivation and empathy are the most important requirements for training with Lactoprot. You can learn all the rest from us.


After leaving school I started training as a dairy laboratory assistant with Lactoprot. I acquire my practical experience at the milk processing plant in Leezen and at our powder processing plant in Kaltenkirchen. My duties at both sites include checking the quality of the incoming goods and conducting chemical and microbiological analyses of the products manufactured by us. What do I like most about this course? That we trainees are trusted and allowed to work very independently. The chances of being taken on permanently after the final exam are good.
