A balanced diet based on whole milk replacement products is assembled. Production under optimum control conditions is carried out in ultra-modern plants in the Netherlands, Germany and Italy. Some of these plants produce semi-finished products which are processed at other plants to create the final product, calf milk powder for calves. The head office in Mijdrecht, the Netherlands manages the purchasing and routing of high-quality raw materials. Together, the production units manufacture approximately 465,000 tonnes of calf milk powder annually. All ingredients used to produce calf milk are sampled and tested and, if approved, are recorded, archived and released for production, ensuring continuous tracking and tracing from ingredient to final product.
