Moved by Milk
Farmel is a fast-growing and dynamic company that is mainly active in the (inter)national trade in raw milk and various dairy products, including powder and butter. Thanks to our extensive network of our own dairy farmers, we can maintain a large and stable milk volume at all times.
At Farmel, we feel completely at home in the world of dairy.
We are your efficient and reliable business partner for the sale and procurement of a wide range of raw milk and dairy products including;
- Liquid dairy
- Milk powder
Thanks to our extensive network of Farmel dairy farmers, based in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Germany, we have a substantial and stable volume of milk at our disposal. This allows us to deliver dairy products at the right place and the right time. We work proactively, anticipating your business needs and requirements. This makes Farmel the ideal partner for any business in need of quality dairy products.
Farmel has many years of experience with the procurement of raw milk and dairy products. Because we work together intensively with our own 190 dairy farms, we know all the operational ins and outs. We intermediate for this group of Quality Milk Chain-certified dairy farmers in order to align supply and demand between the Dutch and international dairy markets. Farmel is right at the source of dairy products. Because there are no additional links in the supply chain, Farmel can guarantee quality and continuity as well as offer competitive prices. The large and consistent volume of milk produced by our dairy farmers enables us to respond flexibly to your needs.
In the Netherlands, quality requirements for dairy products are more stringent than stipulated by the European Union. The raw milk is under strict supervision from the Dutch Controlling Authority for Milk and Milk Products (COKZ). Farmel's milk is of the highest possible quality and is widely used in premium products. Our quality is safeguarded by a quality system that runs throughout the supply chain. We closely supervise milking and storage, cleaning and disinfection, environment and waste, feed and water, medication use and animal welfare. In addition, Farmel has set its own requirements for total viable count, butyric acid concentration and purity.
All transport is organised and carried out by transport company Gebroeders Dunnink in Nieuwleusen. This is a certified transport company that attaches great importance to standards of hygiene, correctness and service. With a large fleet of milk tankers, Gebroeders Dunnink collects the raw milk from our farmers. When the milk is collected from the dairy farmer, a milk sample is drawn which is analysed in Qlip's independent dairy laboratory. The data is constantly monitored and additional quality checks are carried out via Z-net.
This long-standing, successful collaboration between Gebroeders Dunnink and Farmel has enabled us to organise transport from our farmers to our processors, plants and other buyers in a highly efficient and sustainable way.
