Innovation for healthy, nutritious, well-balanced and tasty food

Innovation is an important part of FrieslandCampina’s route2020 strategy. The strategy is aimed at sustainable growth as well as added value. Our innovation, in turn, is focused on the growth categories dairy-based beverages, nutrition for children and branded cheese. Within these growth categories, research and innovation are mainly concentrated in these areas:

  • growth & development (of children)
  • daily nutrition
  • health & wellness and
  • functionality (structure)

FrieslandCampina focuses its innovation on producing healthy, nutritious, well-balanced and tasty food, in which the dietary advantages of milk in particular are made optimum use of and the costs and emission of CO2 are minimised.

These breakthroughs are very costly, both in time and resources.  This is why we are also actively looking for innovation partners who can support and accelerate our innovation processes. We believe Open Innovation can lead to great things.

Reinvent processes

We use milk and milk components into a wide variety of products. State of the art technology is key to protecting the components of milk and making it available for consumers and customers alike. And not only technology is important, the way we use it (the processes) are important too.

From product refreshments to breakthrough innovations

FrieslandCampina wants to achieve breakthroughs, but we also believe that incremental improvements of known technologies can help to produce better products in a better way. Refreshing concepts helps keep our products attractive for our consumers. At the same time breakthrough innovations (new benefits or even completely new concepts) can make dairy products available to more people.
