PETALING JAYA, 19 April 2021 – Dutch Lady Milk Industries Berhad (DLMI), subsidiary of Royal FrieslandCampina (RFC), contracted Royal HaskoningDHV, an international engineering and project management consultancy, to develop DLMI’s new environmental-friendly and innovative production facility in Malaysia.

The scope of Royal HaskoningDHV will include design, procurement, construction management, commissioning and start-up of the facility, as well as assistance in the transfer from the existing factory to the new facilities at Bandar Enstek, Negeri Sembilan. Quality, safety, health, environment and sustainability will be at the heart of the design of the new factory.

DLMI Managing Director, Tarang Gupta said, “As Malaysia’s leading dairy company, I’m very excited to partner Royal HaskoningDHV to build our new production facility that will revolutionise our supply chain processes to enable us to produce DLMI’s range of nutritional products, with the added scalable capacity to manufacture other innovative variations in the future driven by consumer trends and occasions.”

“The experience and expertise of Royal HaskoningDHV will ensure DLMI’s new dairy hub in Negeri Sembilan is world-class and infused with the latest environmental-friendly technology, to further improve efficiency and productivity to produce more products to nourish more Malaysian consumers and increase milk consumption in the future,” Tarang added.

The construction of the new production facility will empower DLMI to grow further and contribute to the development of the Malaysian economy and the local dairy sector. In addition, the new state-of-the-art factory will help increase Negeri Sembilan’s competitiveness to attract new investments and to create new spin-off economic benefits to the local economy as well as to vendors.

Royal HaskoningDHV Director Business Unit Multinationals René Dahmen said, “We are thrilled to again partner Royal FrieslandCampina. By combining our experience in food and beverage, sustainable business and digital technology, we are proud to be able to tap on our 140 years’ experience to design an agile plant that will help DLMI further grow their footprint in Malaysia.”
