As requested on the evaluation day at 4th October of the India/Uganda/Ethiopia/Dutch exchange in the Netherlands, more background information on organic dairy farming in the Netherlands so far. Hereby just a start. This document include an outline of the Dutch production situation, both organic and conventional, Dutch legislations and opportunities for conversion to organic farming, an overview of the Dutch dairy processing and the processing chain and shows some marketing points.
An overview of the different approaches of various organic farmers will follow later.
Hopefully this is valid and valuable information for you. If there are any suggestions or feedback, please contact me.
