Friesland Campina earmarks 23m euros to boost dairy production in Nigeria


Friesland campinaIn an effort to increase the production of dairy products in Nigeria, the Dutch dairy company Friesland Campina announced its determination to invest about twenty-three million euros in dairy production in the country.

Chief Executive Officer Hein Schumacher made a disclosure during a conversation with reporters after a meeting with Vice President Professor Emi Osinbajo last Friday.

"We invest about 23 million euros in new facilities to have milk ready for milk, and in order to have fresh milk for the consumer, you need local production; you can not import fresh milk from Europe, "he said.

Stressing further investment proposals, Managing Director of Friesland Campina WAMCO Nigeria, Ben Langart, said that the discussion with the Vice President focused on the dairy development program and the obstacles the company faces in Nigeria.

He said: "So, we had discussions about how to scale it, what problems we are facing and how to do it more than today."
