Our highlights

Vreugdenhil Dairy Foods, together with all partners in the chain, took valuable steps in the field of sustainability in 2020. The situation around COVID-19 posed challenges and we have paid close attention to the safety and health of our employees. More than 90% of dairy farmers took part in Vreugdenhil's sustainability programme, the CO emissions of milk transport were further reduced, and the roofs of our production sites in Barneveld and Scharsterbrug were fitted with solar panels last year. You can read this and more about our sustainability performance on this website.
