Dutch consumers will soon be able to buy milk from individual cows.

TOP bv, from Wageningen in the Netherlands, is developing a technology platform that enables dairy farmers to pasteurize and package bottles of milk from individual cows.

Dairy farmer Matthijs Baan, from Molenaarsgraaf, will be the first to use the technology that TOP is developing.

Baan said, ‘’Every cow is unique, so every cow’s milk tastes different. One might be creamy and taste like ice cream, while other bottles might be very fresh or sweet.’’

Supermarkets throughout the Netherlands will shortly have sweet milk from Clara 8 and creamy milk from Floortje 30 on their shelves.

According to the company, there are opportunities for innovative entrepreneurs in the dairy sector. In the last couple of years, TOP has been working with a group of dairy farmers to introduce safe raw milk onto the market.
