FrieslandCampina subsidiary opens dairy village in Indonesia
The first dairy village in Indonesia was opened on December 11 as part of the Dairy Development Programme initiated by Frisian Flag Indonesia (FFI), a subsidiary of FrieslandCampina, the latter announced.
The dairy village, which was co-funded by the Netherlands' government and supported by Indonesia, is a modern, sustainable farm in which 5 to 10 local farmers, who are part of the North Bandung Cow Farmers Cooperatives of Lembang, West Java, share the farm facilities including land. They will also receive training that will help them to improve efficiency and boost milk quality and productivity.
By supporting the establishment of the dairy village, FFI shows its commitment to economically and socially empower Indonesian dairy farmers and to support Indonesia in improving food security, FrieslandCampina said.
"In doing so, it is a great example of how FrieslandCampina brings its purpose [of] "nourishing by nature" to life," the Dutch dairy co-operative added.
