Work together on a future-proof dairy chain

In the Sustainable Dairy Chain dairy farmer organisations and dairy companies are working together on making the Dutch dairy sector more sustainable The fairy farmers are represented by LTO Nederland (the Dutch Federation of Agriculture and Horticulture), the Nederlandse Melkveehouders Vakbond РNMV (the trade union of the Dutch dairy farmers) and the Nederland Agrarisch Jongeren Kontakt РNAJK (the Dutch Agricultural Young People’s Association). The thirteen dairy companies from the dairy processing industry have been united in the Nederlandse Zuivel Organisatie РNZO (Dutch Dairy Association). The partners are working together on a future-proof dairy chain producing high-quality nutrition with respect for people, animals and environment and that is highly valued. The Sustainable Dairy Chain proactively takes initiatives to respond to the various sustainability themes. In connection with this, there is a continuous search for balance and an integral approach towards objectives and measures.

Sector objectives 2030

Social organisations, governments and other parties that often work with the dairy sector are as consultants associated with the Sustainable Dairy Chain. In consultation with this advisory council and with the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, the Sustainable Dairy Chain updated the four already existing themes and objectives and added three new themes and objectives for the year 2030 in 2019.

The objectives of the Sustainable Dairy Chain are sector objectives. This means that the sector parties involved have jointly committed themselves to achieving the objectives at sector level. Here use is made of the diversity within the sector. For instance, one dairy farmer likes to do more about nature and landscape, whereas another farmer rather generates sustainable energy.
