The company's presence in Malaysia started after the Second World War. In 1963, its Dutch parent company, Royal Friesland Foods NV ("RFF"), having confidence in the young nation, built its first plant on a 10-acre site in Petaling Jaya and DLMI went on to became the first dairy company to be listed on the local Stock Exchange in 1968.
The company has continued to grow ever since. RFF, through its valuable proprietary formulation, superior technical know-how and research and development, has helped the company to produce a wide range of quality dairy products and fruit based drinks for the Malaysian consumer and for the export market. Currently, the company's dairy products and fruit based drinks have a strong consumer following and are represented by brands such as Dutch Lady, Frisian Flag, Frisolac, Completa, Calcimex and Joy.
"Malaysia's stable Government, good infrastructure, skilled workforce and tax-friendly policies are its major attractions" says Managing Director, Cees Ruygrok. "In 2005, RFF based its SAP Regional Competence Centre in Cyberjaya, the heart of the Multimedia Super Corridor. This Centre provides technical, development and project support to five countries in the Asia Pacific region."
Dutch Lady contributes towards the linkages within the Malaysian economy. The company is the largest purchaser of local fresh milk from the Veterinary Services Department and uses a substantial amount of local ingredients such as palm oil and sugar in its products.
For decades, Dutch Lady has ensured the supply of quality dairy products to the nation. Today, Dutch Lady ranks among the top three dairy producers and is one of the most trusted names in dairy products in Malaysia. Please visit Dutch Lady's website at www.dutchlady.com.my
