Our story

 

1954

Vreugdenhil began life in 1954 as a small, family business in Driebergen, in the middle of the Netherlands. From the outset we felt a strong commitment to our suppliers and customers. We sought out the best natural raw materials, processed them with care, and proudly sold our products in the world market. Today, we make a difference for millions of consumers worldwide. 

Our strategy

1964

By 1964, we had outgrown our Driebergen site, so we moved a few kilometres to Voorthuizen, on the edge of the Veluwe National Park. Further expansion followed with the opening of factories in nearby Barneveld, in 1991, Scharsterbrug, in 2002 and Gorinchem, in 2005. By this point we had grown to be a global player in the fields of high-quality milk powders for consumers and dairy ingredients for the (infant) food industry. 

Milk powders

Our brands

2016

Vreugdenhil Dairy Foods reaffirms its commitment to responsible growth. Our new factory in Gorinchem and new headquarters in Nijkerk are built to the latest sustainability standards. We become the first company to make milk powder from organic milk. And as part of our commitment to CSR, we drill a new well in the village of Gurmaba Bata, Ethiopia. The well will supply the 5,400 villagers with at least 525 million litres of clean drinking water over the coming 20 years. This is equivalent to the amount of water we remove over three years to produce affordable powdered milk for the African market.
