Nestle Supports Dairy Development in China With New Training Institute

Nestle is helping China accelerate the development of its milk industry with the construction of a new dairy farming institute in Shuangcheng in Heilongjiang province. The institute, with its series of training farms, aims to be the country’s leading dairy training centre, offering teaching courses from national and international experts.

Dairy farm owners and workers from Shuangcheng and other Chinese regions will be able to improve their farm management skills and learn how to use the latest agricultural technology. They will gain practical experience in expanding their farm businesses, improving productivity and sourcing high quality milk sustainability.

“We have worked with the local authorities and dairy farmers in Shuangcheng for more than 20 years,” says Roland Decorvet, chairman and chief executive of Nestle China. “Over that time we have helped to transform the area into one of the largest milk producing regions in the country. This new training institute is a continuation of our long-term investment in the future of Shuangcheng to ensure it remains one of China’s leading dairy districts.”

In partnership with the authorities, Nestle has distributed 1,000 free milking machines to farmers to ensure no farmers in the region have to continue milking by hand.
