Our Protein Story
Protein is an important building block for the body and crucial for feeding the growing world population.
Due to their high quality, technical properties and good taste, FrieslandCampina’s protein-rich dairy products form an effective and responsible way to meet the protein needs of people of all ages all over the world.
Dairy or plant-based proteins?
Protein is valuable for our health, but it is also under debate because of sustainability reasons. In order to protect the planet, we have to change our daily diets. However, just telling people to eat more plant-based and less animal-based food is way too simple. It is all about finding a balance between care for the planet and care for our health. While plant-based proteins gain popularity due to their lower carbon footprint, dairy-based proteins are of a higher quality and provide more efficient nutrition for the body.
It is all about finding a balance between care for the planet and care for our health.
Sustainable and healthy
In a both sustainable and healthy diet, proteins from plants are combined with dairy proteins. In this way the protein quality of the diet is secured and in balance with the climate, while contributing to the health of both the people and the planet.
To increase the sustainability of FrieslandCampina dairy products, we continuously aim at reducing the carbon footprint of our milk production at the farm as well as in the product location. Our goal is to be climate-neutral in the year 2050.
