De Nieuwe Melkboer (The New Milkman) has the ambition to revolutionize the alternative dairy sector. They do this by creating the first Dutch plant based seed-to-product chain. With multiple years of experience with local soy cultivation, De Nieuwe Melkboer is working hard to provide the consumer with dairy alternatives, grown and produced locally.
Being farmers themselves, respect for crop and nature are crucial
It has become the new normal to consume animal proteins on a daily basis, resulting in our food system being out of balance. This balance needs to be fixed. De Nieuwe Melkboer contributes to more healthy and sustainable diets, wherein the ratio of consumed plant based and animal proteins is restored.
Tasty and healthy
De Nieuwe Melkboer facilitates this by developing products that are tasty and fit in a healthy diet. They believe in the potential of a local and transparent product that contributes to current major themes around sustainability. A product with impact on a personal and global scale.
Foodvalley Champion 2020 - Protein Shift
The jury: "Bart and Tom Grobben, 'plant-based -milk’ makers as they call themselves, really stand out in the field Protein Shift. They make farming future-proof in a groundbreaking way." With their plant-based dairy variations, from locally-grown proteins such as soy, co-created with local processing partners, they are shaping two transitions at the same time: accelerating the shift to a more plant-based diet and shortening the chain."
De Nieuwe Melkboer (The New Milkman): "We are really pleased to have won this award. It will make it much easier to find and work with parties that, like us, want to produce vegetable dairy with proteins from locally grown crops.”
