This company says the reorganization is a response to provide solutions to customer needs for nutritional, healthy and tasty food products, as one unified brand. While keeping dairy at its core, the company will explore the future growth potential in gut health offerings, protein benefits, and personalized nutrition.
The company remains an international organization with five regional offices to serve customers worldwide and is led by Kathy Fortmann as the president of FrieslandCampina Ingredients.
Fortmann said, “The introduction of FrieslandCampina Ingredients builds on the company’s strong history, which started in 1871 when farmers joined forces in local cooperative dairy factories. Today, we join forces again under one shared commitment: all our market segments are now serving our customers with a unified offering in high-quality nutritional ingredients and solutions for a variety of industries, and for all stages of life.”
In the new FrieslandCampina Ingredients organization, the former operating companies have been shaped into four strategic segments:
Early Life Nutrition; Adult Nutrition, which includes performance, active and medical nutrition; Food & Beverages; and Animal Nutrition.
FrieslandCampina Ingredients reported combined sales of €1.7bn ($1.9bn) in FY18 and employs an international group of 3,250 employees. The new segments operate facilities worldwide, with regional sales offices in The Netherlands, US, Singapore, China and Brazil, operating under one unified brand identity and tagline, “The Inside Matters.”
