Our highlights

Vreugdenhil Dairy Foods, together with all partners in the chain, took valuable steps in the field of sustainability in 2021. Our ambition is to be carbon neutral from grass to glass by 2050. Together with internal and external stakeholders, we worked on a new sustainability agenda with clear and widely supported goals. More than 94% of dairy farmers took part in Vreugdenhil's sustainability programme, the carbon emissions of milk transport were further reduced, and our production site in Barneveld became climate neutral. The results of our employee engagement survey show that our employees feel very committed to the company and are proud of Vreugdenhil. You can read this and more about our sustainability performance on this website.
