NETHERLANDS - Dutch dairy co-operative Friesland Campina has implemented efficiency improvements that will lead to cost reduction and the loss of 40 permanent jobs.
The savings will involve making better use of the capacity of the production lines and by reducing the use of material and energy.
As a consequence of the adjusted methods of working, tasks and responsibilities of employees may change and the number of jobs at various levels in the organisation can be decreased.
A total of about 40 permanent jobs (FTEs) will be lost in Friesland Campina processing locations in Lochem and Veghel in the next three years. In addition, the number of temporary workers and people with employment contracts for a definite time will be structurally lowered by about 48 FTEs.
The savings are part of a plan to improve the value that dairy farmers get out of their milk.
