Posted 14 February 2018 at 12:35

FrieslandCampina’s Dairy Development Programme (DDP) mobilizes Dutch dairy knowledge to support farmers in Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe to improve their livelihoods. DDP is an important business enabler in these parts of the world and a good example of how FrieslandCampina contributes to achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).

We have gained broad international recognition for the positive impact of FrieslandCampina’s presence and role in emerging countries and in 2017 had the opportunity to discuss our contribution to poverty eradication and promoting prosperity at the United Nations in New York. Please find a brief overview of our activities in 2017 attached.
