FrieslandCampina wants to increase its outdoor grazing premium to 1.50 euro per 100 kg milk

October 4, 2016

The Board of the Zuivelcoöperatie FrieslandCampina U.A. and the Executive Board of Royal FrieslandCampina N.V. propose to the member dairy farmers to increase the outdoor grazing premium to 1.50 euro per 100 kg milk. It is also proposed to abolish the quantum allowance, to lower the seasonal payments to 0 euro and to adjust the reservation policy. The cooperative regulations of FrieslandCampina around milk payment composition and profit sharing are evaluated every three years and established for a three-year period. The adjustments will be discussed during the member meetings held in the fall of 2016. Other adjustments being discussed relate to the quality and sustainability programme Foqus planet.
