For more than 125 years FrieslandCampina has been involved in the production of authentic Dutch Cheeses. Although the company has changed considerably, starting out as a small business and becoming the largest cheese producer in the Netherlands, one thing has stayed the same: the Love of Cheese.
Friesland is a region in the north of the Netherlands known for its green meadows, blue skies, lakes and splendid Frisian dairy herds. Campina is a wooded region of grasslands and meadows in the south of the Netherlands, so named by the Romans more than 20 centuries ago.
Today both names – and their many brands – are known all over the globe
