As an expert in dairy proteins, FrieslandCampina DMV developed two types of protein products — whey and casein — for all the athletes of TeamNL, the elite athletes of the Netherlands.

‘We value the quality and expertise of FrieslandCampina; therefore, we approached FrieslandCampina DMV to develop both whey and a casein protein sports nutrition product. These products will be a part of their training and nutrition strategy. The products will be available for around 500 elite athletes,’ said Marco Antonnetti, Marketing Director of NOC*NSF.

‘Elite athletes need protein supplements with a high quality, a limited amount of other ingredients and are tested for doping’, noted Willem Hoogwater, Commercial Director of FrieslandCampina DMV. FrieslandCampina DMV was able to develop these protein products exclusively for NOC*NSF. The market in performance nutrition is developing, we have the ambition to grow in performance nutrition and this is an excellent opportunity for us to show our dedication.
