When it comes to cheese, Gouda, Edam and Maasdam are household names. The production and worldwide sale of these cheese classics is the domain of our FrieslandCampina Cheese operating company.
Most of these cheeses make their way to European consumers via supermarkets, specialty shops and professional clients and processors. We have our own sales locations but we also work with distributors. Thanks to our distribution network, our Dutch cheese classics are also found outside Europe, primarily under our Frico brand.
We have sales offices in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Spain, Greece and Russia.
We produce our Gouda, Maasdam and Edam cheeses in our modern cheese production companies in the Netherlands. The over 4.5 billion kilos of milk we process each year into cheese comes from the member dairy farmers in our cooperative. We also have our own cheese maturing and packaging locations. This enables us to exercise quality control throughout the cheese chain, from the farm up to and including the cheese ripening process.
