The South African Dairy Industry
The South African dairy industry provides healthy, nutritious products to millions of South Africans each year. South Africa roughly produces 200 million liters of milk per month, translating into 2.4 billion litres of milk per year, while Namibia produces 22 million litres per year.
The South African dairy industry operates to free market principles and Parmalat is one of the leaders in this highly competitive industry. The local industry provides work to more than 60000 people, contributing to the country’s economy and sustaining job industries in the industry.
Safety and other legislation
South African dairy products comply with high safety and quality standards, in accordance with local legislation about issues ranging from safety to packaging and ingredients.
The annual SA Dairy Championships is a prestigious event that serves as benchmark for South African dairy quality. See Awards for details of Parmalat’s performance at this event.
