Dairy with a purpose
The world’s population is increasing and with it the need for food. This global development has implications for the health of people and animals as well as for the environment. How will sufficient, nutritious and energy-rich food be produced? What are the consequences of this for the environment? And are there still enough farmers who produce food and, while doing so, achieve a fair income for themselves?
Providing people around the world with the right nutrition is the challenge. FrieslandCampina’s ambition is to provide more help to people and the communities in which they live. FrieslandCampina does this by offering nutritious dairy products and by perpetuating the Company’s long tradition of working and doing business as a cooperative.
Enabling parents to give their children reliable and nutritious dairy products is what motivates FrieslandCampina’s member dairy farmers and employees. It’s what the Company has been doing for more than 140 years. Every day one billion consumers once again experience FrieslandCampina’s innovative and tasty dairy products.
FrieslandCampina brings the best of two worlds together by combining the professionalism and entrepreneurship of its member dairy farmers with the expertise, customer-orientation and experience of global operation of its employees. This safeguards the Company’s growth in both the consumer and industrial markets.
FrieslandCampina is committed to high quality, sustainability and transparency standards throughout the entire chain - ‘from grass to glass’. This lays the foundations for the trust of customers and consumers in the products and safeguards the continuity that is the hallmark of the Cooperative.
FrieslandCampina believes in shared value: the shared achievement of a good income for the member dairy farmers, career development perspectives for the employees and added-value for customers and consumers. At the same time FrieslandCampina wants to stand for added-value for the communities in which it operates. This is how opportunities are created and perspectives are offered to all stakeholders.
