It may come as no surprise that the region of Touraine at the edge of the Loire River, containing the cradle of French culture, gave birth to the largest manufacturer of cheese forms in the world.
In 1972, Mr. Lasalle founded the SERVI company and proposed cheese forms to the local manufacturers of soft cheeses. The company was successful right from the start. Not long after the founding of SERVI, another passionate cheese equipment maker, Mr. Laurent; inspired by the success of SERVI, created a new company called, DORYL by inventing a process duplicating almost identically, the familiar patterns we see of cheese clothes, that incrust rinds of cheese. The new process also transformed the entire pressed cheese market; replacing the old wooden moulds by including proprietary plastic draining technology as well as adding the simulated texture. The micro-perforated DORYL patterns were born.
The collaboration of these companies, based in Langeais were destined to become the number one cheese form source in the cheese making world and increased the development of the dairy market in France and also in many countries of the world.
In 2009, this renowned French company was acquired by ALPMA and since then, together we have written a success story in the global cheese industry. Servi Doryl’s expertise and commitment to quality have made them an indispensable partner in our industry. Together, we serve the cheese industry worldwide, providing our customers with outstanding solutions from a single source. This partnership has enabled us to pool our skills and resources to develop innovative products and better meet our customers’ needs.

Congratulations again to the entire Servi Doryl team on their 50th anniversary. We are confident that the future will be as successful as the past. Cheers to more milestones and achievements!
