FrieslandCampina relaunches global ingredients company
FrieslandCampina Ingredients has combined its four individual companies, DOMO, Kievit, DMV and Nutrifeed, into a new global segment organisation.
This marks the ingredient manufacturer’s evolution in value-added, healthy and functional ingredients and solutions.
FrieslandCampina Ingredients will provide solutions to customer needs for nutritional, healthy and tasty food products, as one unified brand. While keeping dairy at its core, the company will explore the future growth potential in gut health offerings, protein benefits, and personalised nutrition.
Kathy Fortmann, president of FrieslandCampina Ingredients said: “The introduction of FrieslandCampina Ingredients builds on the company’s strong history, which started in 1871 when farmers joined forces in local co-operative dairy factories. Today, we join forces again under one shared commitment: all our market segments are now serving our customers with a unified offering in high-quality nutritional ingredients and solutions for a variety of industries, and for all stages of life.”
In the new FrieslandCampina Ingredients organisation, the former operating companies are transformed into four strategic segments:
- Early Life Nutrition: The segment continues to deliver Infant Milk Formula and nutritional ingredients like GOS, HMOs and hydrolysates.
- Adult Nutrition: The segment serves Performance, Active and Medical Nutrition, and includes nutritional dairy protein ingredients.
- Food & Beverages: This segment serves global food and beverage customers and expertise in creaminess, milkiness, mouthfeel, colour and texture for end-products in the coffee, (milk) tea, pastry, decoration, desserts, ice cream and soups & sauces markets. Additionally, it includes an extensive portfolio of functional dairy protein ingredients.
- Animal Nutrition: This segment continues to work with an international customer base of dairy farms, including reduced antibiotic treatments for animals.
FrieslandCampina Ingredients reported combined sales of €1.7 billion in 2018 and employs an international group of 3,250 employees. The new segments operate facilities worldwide, with regional sales offices in The Netherlands, USA, Singapore, China and Brazil, operating under one unified brand identity and tagline, “The Inside Matters”.
