Limelco and FrieslandCampina Belgium team up

22 March 2013

Under the agreement, Limelco wants to take over and future-proof the purchasing and processing of the milk of approximately 20% of the FrieslandCampina suppliers.

The suppliers involved are located in Limburg, Antwerp, Flemish and Walloon Brabant, Liege, Namen and Henegouwen. This will enable Limelco to further maximise its industrial operations.

FrieslandCampina will continue to collect and process the milk from all suppliers in the provinces of East and West Flanders, from all suppliers of Campina milk and from its member dairy farmers in Belgium. The range of products that FrieslandCampina supplies to the Belgian market will remain unchanged.

Limelco, plans to maximise its production of industrial dairy products, including skimmed milk powders for human consumption. Limelco was looking to achieve a broad-based supply of its own milk.

FrieslandCampina wants to align the volume of milk it purchases from suppliers in Belgium to the market demand in Belgium. FrieslandCampina currently collects more milk from its Belgian suppliers than it can sell on the Belgian market.

Limelco is assuring the suppliers involved that their milk will continue to be purchased and processed for a period of several years.
