Product suppliers

Suppliers and producers are key to providing good quality products to our customers. These suppliers are selected carefully and subject to strict requirements on quality, but also on sustainability. A good partnership with suppliers is of utmost importance in providing food-safe products that match our customers’ expectations.


Transporters are not only valued for the transport of products, from the loading at our suppliers through the delivery to our customers, they are also the eyes and ears of Numidia. They are key to ensuring the proper quality of products and their packaging during loading, transport and delivery. When selecting transport companies and forwarders, we consider both the quality of their services and their contributions to CO2 reduction.


Warehouses play a similarly valuable role to transporters and are essential to ensuring quality during the receipt, storage and dispatch of products.


Without customers, there is no business. That is why we cherish our customers and work to continually improve our performance. We want to unburden them as much as possible (within the framework of our strategy).


Our employees (the Numidians) are our most important asset. They determine the success of the organization on a daily basis.


Numidia is fortunate to have an experienced management team, with expert knowledge of the dairy industry. We reap the benefits of the diversity of personalities and backgrounds within our management team, which results in diverse points of view.


Banks enable us to finance our activities, based on a set of conditions. The flexibility in the terms and conditions partly determines our commercial playing. Given the growth and increasing stability of the organization and its finances, we see this playing field expanding further.


The dairy trade involves a range of risks. Insurance companies enable us to mitigate the most important risks (transport, liability, cyber security, credit, travel, superficies, etc.) and thereby make our business activities possible.


Governments around the world are closely involved in managing the food supply. In many countries, Numidia is connected to the government through its business, whether it concerns obtaining the correct (export) certificates or further relaxing trade rules.

Auditors and other certifying bodies

Our (external) auditor and other institutions that certify us play an important role in our continued existence. With their (unqualified) statements, we can demonstrate to the outside world that Numidia has its affairs under control.
