First sustainable Dairy Village of Indonesia Initiated by Frisian Flag Indonesia

11 December 2018

INDONESIA - The first Dairy Village of Indonesia was opened today as part of the Dairy Development Programme of Frisian Flag Indonesia (FFI) - a subsidiary of FrieslandCampina.

The dairy village, co-funded by the Netherlands' Government and supported by the Indonesian Government, is a new, modern and sustainable farm in which five to ten Indonesian farmers, who are part of the North Bandung Cow Farmers Cooperatives of Lembang, West Java, share the farm facilities including land and together receive training to improve efficiency and boost milk quality and productivity.

By supporting the setup of the Dairy Village, FFI shows its commitment to economically and socially empowering Indonesian dairy farmers as well as supporting the Indonesian Government to improve food security. This is a great example of how FrieslandCampina brings its purpose of nourishing by nature to life.

Other partners in this so-called FDOV project include Wageningen University and Research, Agriterra and The Frisian.
