Sustainable dairy farming
Vreugdenhil Dairy Foods stands for quality, collaboration, and sustainability. Dutch milk has an exceptionally good name worldwide in the milk production domain. That is why dairy farmers are our most important suppliers. Vreugdenhil supports dairy farmers in making milk production sustainable, stimulating this transition, and sharing knowledge.
More and more dairy farmers are getting serious about agricultural nature management. In 2021, nearly 70% of our dairy farmers took additional measures to increase biodiversity on their land. Examples of these measures include bird management, ditch bank management, and the creation or protection of other landscape elements.
