|The Dutch Dairy Association (NZO) is the sector organisation of the Dutch dairy processing industry. Dairy companies, jointly processing approximately 98 percent of Dutch farm milk, are affiliated with the organisation. The dairy activities of NZO members have a turnover of some 10 billion, two-thirds of which are exported. Approximately 9,000 employees work in the dairy industry. |
The objective of the NZO is to strengthen the economic and social position of the Dutch dairy companies. Specifically, it formulates and communicates industry interests vis-à-vis (inter)national dairy policy, provides information on the role of dairy products in the diet and promotes sustainable dairy production and safe products.
