Title
Providing Tailor-Made Solutions

Content

For a global company like ours, it is important that we conduct both our internal and external business in a responsible way. It is important we build relationships with our stakeholders. Legal supports the business on a broad variety of matters by providing tailor-made legal solutions and advice, while continuously balancing between optimal legal protection and business interests.

It's important to understand the business

“One day I am tasting different applications of our creamers in product trainings and other days I’m drafting contracts for the sale of special cheeses, butter and infant nutrition. It’s very important to understand how the business works in order to identify risks and to translate this into a contract. This way, I learn a lot about the business and work together with many different colleagues from different departments.” – Hanna Riemersma, Legal Counsel
