For thousands of people every day, we are more than just a dairy company. To our farmers, our employees the communities we serve, the businesses we work with and the people to whom we bring happiness, FrieslandCampina means something more. For them it’s not just about what we do, but who we are. As we work in highly competitive markets we need to be agile while, at the same time, carefully balancing all of our interdependent business processes. We are unique because our suppliers, the farmers, are also our owners. Since we own the entire supply chain from grass to glass we guarantee high quality of all our products.
It’s the commitment and passion of our employees that has helped us become a truly global company.
We have grown into one of the largest dairy companies in the world and have been operating in many countries in Africa for over 50 years and in Asia for over 90 years. We own many strong local brands that are considered iconic by the communities we operate in. Our products are being shipped to over 100 countries all over the globe. The company is still owned by a proud and strong cooperative of almost 20,000 farmers. Many of them have been members for generations.
Doing fair business and having a sustainable vision for the future of our company and our farmers is a fundamental element of our DNA. Whether it’s a Vietnamese farm owner trying to grow a dairy business, or training a Nigerian farmer on good dairy practices, we never lose sight of the people we serve.
Our purpose ‘Nourishing by nature’ guides our business decisions. We make sure the job is done every day and that we understand how what we do every day affects the bigger picture. We’re always adding value to a better living for our member farmers and that’s why we need to become a little better every day.
