These products will be a part of their training and nutrition strategy. The products will be available for around 500 elite athletes.’ according Marco Antonnetti, marketing director of NOC*NSF.

‘Elite athletes need protein supplements with a high quality, a limited amount of other ingredients and are tested for doping’, according to Willem Hoogwater, Commercial director of FrieslandCampina DMV. FrieslandCampina DMV was able to develop these protein products exclusively for NOC*NSF. ‘The market in performance nutrition is developing, we have the ambition to grow in Performance Nutrition and this is an excellent opportunity for us to show our dedication.’

Quote from Peter van Schie, Olympic Athlete 2016 (rowing):
“Being an Olympic rower, nutrition plays a very important role in preparing for races. I need top quality and great tasting proteins to build up my strength and recover fast. Dairy proteins are my conscious choice, they have this premium quality with high nutritional value, taste well and are easy to absorb for my body. With the dairy proteins of FrieslandCampina DMV I have a perfect match, and as these are tested on doping I can be re-assured to use these safely.”
