FrieslandCampina will restructure the production in the operating companies FrieslandCampina Cheese, FrieslandCampina Butter and Ecomel (organic dairy). As a result of this restructuring, about 140 jobs will be made redundant in the next two years. At the same time a total of about 30 million euro will be invested in the expansion of production plants.
Danone announces that it is investing €240 million to build a new plant for its Early Life Nutrition business. With this investment, Danone will capitalize on strong and growing demand for its international early life nutrition brands, including Aptamil and Nutrilon, for both standard and specialized products. The state-of-the-art facility will be built in Cuijk in the Netherlands, and will start production in late 2017.
This new plant is Danone’s largest investment in its European production capabilities, and will double its capacity in the Netherlands. Output will be exported to more than 80 countries worldwide.
