FrieslandCampina to Invest €245 Million to Expand Borculo and Leeuwarden Plants

The member council of FrieslandCampina has approved the construction of a new plant for infant and toddler nutrition and ingredients in Borculo, as well as the replacement and expansion of the processing capacity for evaporated milk products in Leeuwarden, both in the Netherlands. The plans require an investment of Eur135 million in Borculo and Eur110 million in Leeuwarden.

These amounts are in addition to the total of Eur200 million in investments FrieslandCampina committed to in the first half of 2013. With these expansion plans, FrieslandCampina is not only contributing to regional employment, but also to a further strengthening of the Netherlands’ export position in dairy products.

The aim is to build a new plant in Borculo next to the existing site, complete with a spray-drying tower for the production of infant and toddler nutrition and ingredients.

By replacing and expanding its processing capacity in Leeuwarden, FrieslandCampina is responding to the growing demand for evaporated milk products in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. The construction process will make use of technical and sustainable innovations, such as evaporators capable of reusing heat multiple times. This will ensure considerable energy cost savings.
