Dairy Manufacturer Valio Updated Dryer Controls
Valio, solely owned by the Finnish dairy farmers, is the largest dairy company in Finland. The company is represented by 8.000 milk producers who own and operate family farms, each having on average 30 milk cows.
Valio, operating in the world’s northernmost agricultural region, is faced with many challenges. High feed costs, a direct result of the short growing season, set the price of milk quite high. Careful cost control is imperative to remain competitive. Valio concentrates much effort on developing innovative added-value products such as lactose-free, protein rich and functional dairy items to maximize the value of milk products.
