Our highlights

Vreugdenhil Dairy Foods, together with all partners in the chain, took valuable steps in the field of sustainability in 2019. For example, more than 90% of dairy farmers participate in the Vreugdenhil sustainability programme; we have achieved good results in the area of health and safety; and last year the roofs of our Gorinchem production site were fitted with solar panels.
