Milk Processing & Products

For centuries, dairy production has been a specialty in the Netherlands. In the past, milk was processed directly at farms in privately owned plants, and in cooperative processing plants. Merger upon merger led to a few very big cooperatives. These cooperatives run a small number of highly specialised highcapacity processing plants. Research and development is foundational to the innovation of large varieties of high quality milk products.
