Create long term value with sustainability
Working on sustainability in dairy creates value in your markets. Dairy buyers want to reduce risk with their dairy raw materials. They want to be sure that the supplier has control over sustainability issues in its total supply chain. More and more large food-companies predict the end of a commodity market and are transparent about the source of their raw materials. This creates closer cooperation between supplier and buyer. Not only the costs but more the value of the dairy raw materials are part of the contract. In this cooperate approach between buyer and supplier, additional value can be created. We developed a methodology where you can identify your values with your sustainability program.
