Leading dairy companies in Belgium 2016, by turnover

Leading dairy companies in Belgium in 2016, by turnover (in million U.S. dollars)

by Brigitte van de Pas, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Leading dairy companies in Belgium 2016, by turnover The Belgian dairy market is dominated by players from larger neighboring countries. French multinational Danone Groupe was the leading dairy company in Belgium in 2016, with a turnover of nearly 300 million U.S. dollars. Royal FrieslandCampina NV, market leader in its country of origin the Netherlands, was the second-largest dairy company in Belgium, with a turnover of almost 250 million U.S. dollars. Lactalis Groupe, Savencia Fromage & Dairy and Bel Groupe, ranked third, fourth and fifth respectively, are all French, whereas Unilever (in sixth place) is another Dutch dairy company.  

  The highest-ranked Belgian dairy company is Milcobel NV, with a turnover valued at roughly one sixth of market leader Danone’s. The worldwide turnover of Belgium’s largest dairy cooperative amounted to just under one billion euros in 2017, an increase in comparison to the three previous years. The producer of butter, cheese and milk-based drinks employed nearly 2,000 people in 2017.

 Dairy manufacturing in Belgium

  Although the most important dairy manufacturers operating in Belgium are of foreign origin, dairy production is no marginal part of the Belgian economy either, with over 400 active enterprises and nearly 6,000 people employed in the dairy processing industry. The export of dairy from Belgium was valued at over 3.3 billion euros in 2017.
