Singapore -- (ACN Newswire) -- The expansion plans which will see Greenfields Milk significantly grow its production capacity are officially underway. Greenfields Milk's head of farm operations and his team went to Australia in late May to select in a stringent process the first team of 600 heifer (pre-milking cows) from a breeding station in Undera, Melbourne.
Having selected the ideal heifers, the team was successfully transported by air cargo from Melbourne, Australia to the integrated dairy farm facility in East Java, Indonesia. A second team of 600 cows are expected to arrive in East Java in August.
"This is a milestone and an exciting time for Greenfields Milk," said Jan Gert Vistisen, Head of Sales and Marketing, AustAsia Food Pte Ltd. "As the demand for fresh milk and dairy has grown across Southesast Asia, so too has Greenfields Milk. We look forward to welcoming these 1,200 heifers to their new home, beginning this period of significant growth for Greenfields, and continuing to provide the highest quality and freshest milk to Southeast Asia."
Currently home to over 6,000 Holstein cows, the East Java site is set to expand and grow in the near future to enable Greenfields Milk to better meet growing milk and dairy demand across Southeast Asia. This acquisition of 1,200 new cows is the first step in the expansion plans for Greenfields Milk which is set to more than double its annual milk production within the next two years.
