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'.

The Milky Gari project ensures that children in Liberia start the school day with a nutritious meal. Schools in Liberia closed in early 2020 due to COVID-19. In response, the distribution of Take Home Rations was started.

Ethiopians given clean drinking water

...from the well in a village in Ethiopia that we have been funding since 2015. This project matches every litre of water we extract from milk in the Netherlands to produce milk powder for the African consumer market.
