Saf-Viet (Lesaffre Vietnam)
One of three breads in the world is made with yeast from Lesaffre.
Lesaffre group, a 160-year-old French family group based in Northern France has now become a multi-national and a multicultural company that is committed to providing the best in each of its business areas: baking, nutrition and health, flavours and fermentation.
Saf-Viet’s history started in 1999, when Lesaffre, world leader on the market of baker yeast became allied with Cat Tuong, historic player in the Vietnamese market.
In 2002, the shareholders decided to build a new factory together in Long An. Production started in 2008.
Since then, Saf-Viet developed its sales and its production, constantly its quality, to become the reference in compressed yeast not only in Vietnam but also in other Asian countries.
Consequently, in 2012 it was decided to increase the capacity of the factory, to meet the demands of these markets.
