Something About Engro:
Engro Foods Limited (EFL) is a company built from the fabric of Pakistan, it was driven with a vision to cater to local needs with products conforming to global food safety standards. EFL was formed in 2005 and within a short span of 10 years it became the 2nd largest dairy company of Pakistan. The credibility EFL established within this short span of time, attracted foreign investment into Pakistan’s dairy sector. FrieslandCampina, the 6th largest dairy cooperative in the world, acquired 51% shares of Engro Foods in December 2016 and EFL became a subsidiary of Friesland Campina. Friesland Campina is a cooperative which is owned by 19,000 dairy farmers. This investment not only strengthened the economy but also reduced unemployment by creating more job opportunities and empowering Engro Foods with 150 years of dairy farming expertise to be shared with the consumers and the farmers of Pakistan.
With roots stretching as far back as 1871, FrieslandCampina has a rich storied history. It has an annual revenue of over 12 billion euros and is one of the largest dairy companies in the world. FrieslandCampina is based in the Netherlands and have offices in 32 countries and employ over 23,000 people. Our products find their way to more than 100 countries. Most wonderfully the very people we serve, own us; our owners are around 19,000 farmers in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium.
Indeed this unique fact of being owned by a cooperative of farmers colors our vision greatly. Our purpose statement is nourishing by nature. This means we are committed to better nutrition for the world, so as the population of the world crosses 9 Billion by 2050 we will be there helping feed the world with affordable and iteratively improving products. It means we believe in a good living for our farmers so they can maximize their incomes by being a part of our ecosystem. It means we will grow in a sustainable manner achieving climate neutral growth because we have a commitment to now and for generations to come.
