This milk is then processed into a wide range of dairy products, ranging from yoghurt, custard, dairy-based beverages, cheese, butter and infant nutrition to ingredients for the food industry. Satisfied customers and consumers are a prerequisite for the continuity of FrieslandCampina and, consequently, for the farms of the member dairy farmers. The chain is complete.
