FrieslandCampina: base load facilities offered at the highest transparency and flexibility levels.
As a truly Dutch company, FrieslandCampina provides people around the world with all the good things milk has to offer, with products that play an important role in people’s nutrition and well-being. Together with their member dairy farmers, they are milk experts who are continually expanding their knowledge of the applications of milk. FrieslandCampina carries out their commercial activities via four market-oriented business groups: Consumer Products Europe, Consumer Products International, Cheese & Butter and Ingredients. In the field of consumer products they’re active in many European countries, in Asia and in Africa. Sales to industrial customers take place worldwide.
FrieslandCampina works within the context of their Route2020 strategy to achieve climate-neutral growth throughout the dairy chain. Sustainability is a key prerequisite in the realization of the company’s business strategy.
FrieslandCampina has been a partner for about a decade and had been supplying gas since 2003. Over the last 10 years GDF SUEZ has supplied over 2 billion m3 gas to the company.
A constructive partnership has been the basis for several tailor made solutions. As the world is turning to a sustainable future, the nature of the partnership changes as well. The balance between energy and sustainability related issues are at the core of FrieslandCampina’s daily work. This urges GDF SUEZ Global Energy to provide new products and solutions with the highest reliability, quality against competitive prices.
“I’ve always valued the transparence of the organization very high”, states Ernst van der Vlist, Category Procurement Manager (Utilities) of FrieslandCampina. “Even if it meant taking a look in the Paris trading department of the company, we were offered maximum transparency to give us comfort and the best information to enhance our decision making concerning energy needs."
“To us, gas is a commodity for which a good price is very important. But in a good partnership reliability, flexibility and transparency are of course key. Over the last 10 years GDF SUEZ Global Energy has proven to be a flexible, transparent and a constructive partner for our energy needs”.
