ForFarmers quits Danish activities

25-04-2008 | |

Dutch animal feed cooperative ForFarmers is turning over its activities for Dutch dairy farmers in Denmark to Danish cooperative Aarhusegnens Andel in Galten.

Aarhusegnens toll-manufactures dairy feed according to ForFarmers recipes for
around 100 Dutch dairy farmers that have settled in Denmark in the last 20
years.

In the beginning the feed was produced in the Netherlands, but due
to high transportation costs ForFarmers in the last years had it made in
Denmark.

In total some 15,000 tonnes of feed and a small volume of raw
materials were supplied to the Dutch farmers. “This volume was quite static. We
also had to grow to keep up with the professionalising of the dairy farmers
and our volume was too small for that. That is why we turn our activities over
to a larger player in the country,” ForFarmers director Bert-Jan Ruumpol
explains the move.

Aarhusegnens is a mid-size cooperative with annual
turnover of € 350 million and a feed production of almost 600,000
tonnes.
