The plant would be used for the processing of the cooperative’s members’ milk into fresh dairy products, ingredients for the production of early life and adult nutrition, and for cheese manufacturing.
The company said it would be built according to the latest insights in the area of technology and sustainability.
With the new facility, FrieslandCampina would increase the flexibility of its supply chain to meet increasing market demand for special milk flows and accommodate anticipated growth for the coming years.
Due to the potential size of the new plant, as well as sustainability and technical requirements, a greenfield location is foreseen.
The dairy products and ingredients will be marketed and sold to global customers.
Financial details of the potential plant and information about the number of employees have not been disclosed.
