Dutch Dairy Day

The Dutch Dairy Day (DDD) is an annual event dedicated for cooperation in Dairy sector between the Netherlands and Ukraine. The Netherlands is one of the most productive dairy countries in the world and has a global network in sales. As example worldwide, Campina-Friesland and Rabobank are the main players in the sector. Another point of interest is both companies are cooperatives. The Netherlands has a lot of expertise and equipment to offer. Ukraine on the other hand has a long term experience as dairy producer and has the ambition to become a big player in the global dairy market.

This year, the 4th DDD will concentrate on what is the flag of The Netherlands in the dairy sector - cattle breeding.
