Today the first Dairy Village of Indonesia was opened as part of the Dairy Development Programme of Frisian Flag Indonesia (FFI, a subsidiary of FrieslandCampina).
The dairy village, which was co-funded by the Netherlands’ Government and supported by the Indonesian Government, is a new, modern and sustainable farm in which 5 – 10 Indonesian farmers, who are part of the North Bandung Cow Farmers Cooperatives of Lembang, West Java, share the farm facilities including land and receive trainings together to improve efficiency and boost milk quality and productivity.
By supporting the setting up of the Dairy Village FFI shows its commitment to economically and socially empower Indonesian dairy farmers and to support the Indonesian Government to improve food security. In doing so it is a great example of how FrieslandCampina brings its purpose nourishing by nature to life.
Other partners in this so-called FDOV project include Wageningen University and Research, Agriterra and The Frisian. For more information watch this short film.
