Clean drinking water

We extract water from milk to produce our milk powders. Consumers then put water back into our products. However, clean drinking water cannot be taken for granted in Africa, where many of our consumers live. That is why we fund drinking water projects in Africa, under the motto 'a litre for a litre'.

Thanks to the Milky Gari project in cooperation with our customer Hoogwegt, children in Liberia start the school day with a nutritious meal. Milky Gari is a nutritious porridge that contains Vreugdenhil's enriched milk powders.

Ambitions, goals and results


Ethiopians given clean drinking water

... from the well in a village in Ethiopia that we have been funding since 2015. By financing these projects we mirror every litre of water we extract from the milk in the Netherlands during the production of milk for the African consumer market.
