Site Veghel is part of Business Group Ingredients and employs 500 full time employees. In Veghel a range of Business to Business dairy based ingredients are produced that are sold and distributed by Ingredients Go To Market entities such as the Pharmaceutical, Infant Food and Sports Nutrition markets (Caseinates, Whey Protein Concentrates (WPC), Lactose and feed). The milk processing capacity in Veghel - which is resulting from several expansion projects - currently consists of approximately 30 million kilograms of milk per week and approximately the same amount of cheese whey.

Site Veghel is a large and complex site and is business critical for RFC because of the large milk and whey processing volume (>25% of the total company milk volume). The site consists of 2 large manufacturing plants and 1 utility plant. Site Veghel is a SEVESO III Directive (BRZO: besluit risico’s zware ongevallen) location and therefore under strict supervision of governmental authorities. There are prominent safety risks regarding transportation, chemicals, explosion risk, steam/pressure, heights that need to be managed Processes are technology intense and executed according to high working standards and continuously improved further. Many large investment projects are carried out on site with an average of ~60 M Euro annually also resulting in a daily high amount of contractors on site. Next to safety context the environmental permit situation is complex. The environmental boundaries and developments are very strict and a precondition for current operations en future growth. Site Veghel is a ‘needle mover’ from an environmental and sustainability perspective: high energy, water consumption and a complex waste water situation with a high potential to improve.
