We want to help people move forward in life with natural dairy nutrition. With milk we can respond to the growing demand on the world market for healthy food that is produced in a sustainable manner. Milk contains essential nutrients, such as protein, fats, lactose, vitamins and minerals. We also want to be the most attractive dairy company for member dairy farmers of the dairy co-operative Zuivelcoöperatie FrieslandCampina.
Our target for 2020 is a substantially higher performance premium for milk than in 2009 as well as a higher dividend in the form of equity registered in the name of members via member bonds.
In our strategy route2020 we focus with our investments and innovations on a selected number of value drivers. Given the developments we are seeing in society as a whole, as well as among consumers and our clients, our innovation is targeted at good, healthy food and nutritional benefits. In the case of our professional and industrial clients we are concentrating on the functional qualities of our ingredients so that our customers, in turn, can improve both the quality and taste of their products.
We are fascinated by the power and potential of milk
By nature, milk is one of the richest sources of food. Our dairy products provide not only a unique taste sensation, but also proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and lactose - building materials and fuels that are important to the health and well-being of people. We firmly believe that there is much more to discover about both milk itself and the value we can create from milk. We are passionate about unlocking that power and getting more out of milk. In doing so, we intend to become the world’s most professional, successful and attractive global dairy company.
