Our suppliers ensure quality and quality as well
We have stringent requirements for our suppliers of fruit, sugars, rennet and the many other ingredients we use in our products (besides milk).
A good, open relationship between buyer and supplier is paramount in order to get a clear picture of the safety risks in our supply chain and the way these risks are controlled. This is one of the reasons we work almost exclusively with preferred suppliers.
Safe processes and systems
The selection of preferred suppliers at FrieslandCampina is handled by category teams. These teams represent all the relevant disciplines such as R&D, marketing, procurement and Quality Assurance. One of the crucial elements of the selection is an inspection of the safety of the supplier’s processes and systems. And even after we have entered into a preferred partnership, we continue to conduct audits. FrieslandCampina carries out a total of some 450 supplier audits per year.
