    Dairy giant FrieslandCampina to relocate UK headquarters to London

    Global dairy giant FrieslandCampina has announced a strategic office relocation of its UK headquarters from Horsham to Victoria, London.

    The company, whose brands include leading flavoured milk brand Yazoo, premium offering Chocomel, and RTD coffee brand Barista, said the move underlines the company’s enduring commitment to future growth and innovation within the dairy industry.

    “This relocation marks a pivotal moment for FrieslandCampina as we position ourselves for the next phase of growth and development in the UK and Ireland,” Will Jones, managing director UK & Ireland at FrieslandCampina, said.

    “We’ve invested significantly in our iconic brands in recent years. Now it is time to match that investment in our people. Not only will the new space enhance our operational efficiency, but it also enables us to stay agile and responsive to the evolving needs of our customers – as well as delivering the elevated environs that our colleagues deserve to help them to deliver their most effective work.  This is a move that will set the stage for more innovation, more collaboration, and more sustained growth.”

    The move follows a recent strategic review that highlighted the UK as a key growth market for FrieslandCampina in Europe. The UK serves as a pivotal, top five market for member value for the dairy co-operative, which is collectively owned by over 14,500 member farmers and has branch offices in 29 different countries, while selling products in over 100 countries worldwide.

    After over 30 years at the previous UK headquarters in Horsham, the move to London signifies a measured step towards creating a more modern and dynamic workspace that facilitates greater integration of teams and collaborative culture close to key customers and partners, whilst benefitting from the city’s diverse talent pool and vibrant atmosphere.

    It features a custom-built bright and airy open-plan layout and dedicated themed meeting rooms that pay homage to each brand’s distinct identities. The new space offers a vibrant work environment that aims to both nurture and empower individuals, and benefits from Victoria’s unparalleled connectivity as a major transport hub, allowing for better integration of stakeholders in the UK and beyond.

    Embracing modern work dynamics, the office supports FrieslandCampina’s existing, agile working model, whereby employees can work remotely, ensuring flexibility across the team to suit busy personal and professional schedules.

    “We believe that the inspiring and modern work environment will be a magnet for professionals who share our vision for excellence and innovation and help FrieslandCampina attract and retain top talent in the industry,” Jones added.

    “The UK team will take occupancy of this brilliant new space in Q2, and we’re excited about what our future in the city may bring!”
