The Dutch dairy chain, fuelled by more than 18,000 dairy farmers, is currently facing a huge challenge: it must realise sustainable development, while simultaneously enhancing and expanding its position in an increasingly global market. If this challenge is to be met, it is essential that all parties in the milk and dairy chains join forces and cooperate.
Although Dairy Campus focuses on the entire dairy chain from grass to glass, most activities deal with the milk production side of the dairy chain. At Dairy Campus innovative projects and activities are carried out in order to generate new information and knowledge to drive innovation in the dairy chain. In this way science and practice go hand in hand.
New knowledge is created that will contribute to a sustainable future in which sufficient, healthy and safe milk is produced. And this all with respect for mankind, animals and environment.
The milk triangle
Close cooperation with entrepreneurs and business sector is key, this is our golden milk triangle. The demand from the whole dairy industry including farmers, suppliers and processors is central to Dairy Campus to develop new knowledge that can be applied to innovative products and processes. Moreover this knowledge is applied in education and training of present and future professionals.
Dairy Campus is part of Wageningen University & Research, but moreover is also linked with organisations as Van Hall Larenstein university of applied science, vocational education Nordwin College, national farmers organisation LTO Nederland, dairy coop FrieslandCampina, RUG Campus Fryslân,
city of Leeuwarden and the province of Fryslân. Dairy Campus is part of the national Agrifood cluster and connected also with other Dutch clusters like Food Valley Wageningen, Water Campus Leeuwarden and the Sino Dutch Dairy Development Center in Beijing - China.
