Confidence for Campina to start with healthy milk
A large number of Campina member-farmers in the Netherlands have applied to
produce Campina milk with a more balanced fatty acid composition. The
overwhelming response represents a new and important step in preparing for the
introduction of the Campina milk in the spring of 2007.
Based on these applications, Campina is now confident that from next spring
it can annually supply Dutch consumers with about 200 million litres of healthy
milk and buttermilk with a more balanced fatty acid composition.
Selection of farms
In the coming weeks Campina will be making
a selection from the dairy farms that submitted applications. This selection is
based, among others, on the location of the dairy farm (to keep transport costs
at a minimum), the feed supplier (a minimum of 45 dairy farms per point of
contact in the cattle feed sector) and the dairy farmer's commitment to outdoor
grazing during the grazing season.
