The company says the new site is one of the most technically advanced livestock farms in the country, with room for 1,200 Holstein milking cows.

The farm, which has been constructed on the Trud collective farm acquired by the group in 2005, will form part of a company-wide strategy to boost national agricultural production in order to benefit raw material supply.

With the margins of a growing number of dairy processors being put under pressure from current high commodity costs for products like milk, processors are being forced to find news ways of collecting ingredients.

It is in this climate that Wimm-Bill-Dann hopes to ensure the highest quality throughout its production cycle, from raw materials up to the final product itself.
