Thanks to our global team of farmers, processors, traders, as well as the thousands of dairy cows on our farms, we have established a business that thrives on producing quality ingredients that meet international food safety standards, as well as multiple consumer trends without compromising on nutrition, taste or functionality.
“From our first consignment of milk powders into Algeria in 2004, we have grown into a top 5 dairy ingredients business with extensive operations across more than 20 countries worldwide. This is built on our commitment to being the supplier of choice for our customers.”
We operate large-scale dairy farms integrated with our processing facilities in Russia and Uruguay. Our produce is completely traceable, consistent and meets stringent food safety standards.
In Uruguay, our subsidiary NZFSU manages 36 dairy farms, with around 66,000 cows. Here we produce high quality raw milk which we process into milk powder and other dairy products.
In Russia, our dairy business Rusmolco is situated in the village of Arshinovka in the Penza region. It serves the Russian market, which is currently one of the world’s largest importers of milk. There are 13,600 cows in our herd which produces 44 million litres of milk per year in a state-of-art-facilities. We also grow feed across 76,000 hectares of fields to support our animals.
We offer a full range of dairy ingredients across Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia to manufacturers and consumers.
We have invested in dairy product manufacturing in Malaysia and New Zealand.
In Johor, Malaysia, our manufacturing facility produces high quality fat-filled milk powder. It has the capacity to produce 23,000 tonnes of functional ingredients each year.
Olam is also the second largest shareholder in Open Country Dairy, New Zealand, which processes 900 million litres of milk annually, producing about 135,000 tonnes of full cream milk powder and cheese.
Our dairy products are used in restaurants, homes, and kitchens around the world.
Many small and medium-sized businesses in Africa pack our ingredients into sachets or use them to produce fresh yoghurt and flavoured milk.
We also sell branded dairy consumer packs in several African countries including Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal and Nigeria. These packs include much-loved brands such as ‘FreshYo’, ‘Blueboat’, and ‘Grand Meadow’.
Given malnutrition issues in many African countries, where possible, and without compromising on food safety and quality, we fortify our products with vitamins and minerals.
All of these brands have won the loyalty of millions of people since we first launched them, and today they are among the top 3 in most of the countries where we sell them.
Our Dairy team in Russia shares how we are making an impact in the dairy farming industry, capitalising on the long-term competitive advantages in the sector to deliver high quality milk for the local dairy processing industry.
