Announcement contract acquisition sales of mozzarellaPublication date: 09-10-2019
The new mozzarella and cream factory of Royal A-ware in Heerenveen will be operational at the end of 2019.
For the sales of the mozzarella factory, a contract has been concluded with strategic partner Fonterra Co-op Ltd from New Zealand. Fonterra has, following their strategic reorientation, requested Royal A-ware to be allowed to transfer the agreement for the purchase of mozzarella. Royal A-ware has cooperated in this. Fonterra and Royal A-ware terminated the agreement for the purchase of mozzarella, and Royal A-ware and FrieslandCampina concluded a new agreement for this. In addition, FrieslandCampina will eventually deliver milk to the mozzarella factory. This change has no impact on the construction and operation of the new mozzarella and cream factory or on existing agreements with dairy farmers who supply Royal A-ware. This change has no influence on the construction and operation of the factory or on existing agreements with dairy farmers who deliver to Royal A-ware. Agreements regarding the purchase of cream and whey by Fonterra remain in full force.
