In Germany the Holland headquartered dairy cooperative Royal FrieslandCampina and the Germany headquartered dairy cooperative Hochwald will exchange milk to reduce transport costs and more than 1000 tonnes CO2 emissions. By exchanging member milk between the companies, the distance from dairy farms to processing locations will be significantly reduced. FrieslandCampina will transport milk from some of its German member dairy farmers to Hochwald’s production sites in Germany using its own transport. In turn Hochwald will transport the same amount of milk from its own member dairy farms located in the German border area with the Netherlands to an FrieslandCampina’s production site in the Netherlands. For member dairy farmers this exchange makes no difference. The milk is collected and paid for by their own dairy cooperative, according to the cooperatives.
