Fonterra has opened up new European headquarters in Amsterdam, according to DairyReporter.com.

The report quoted Koert Liekelema, general manager for Europe, explaining how the move will help the New Zealand dairy grow its value-added ingredients business.

The old headquarters in Hamburg, Germany, were closed in December to make way for the new office in the Netherlands.

Liekelema said moving to the new location is part of a strategic decision to focus on building its value-added and specialty ingredients portfolio in Europe.

Previously the European arm of the New Zealand dairy had focused on imported cheese and butter.

Fonterra employs around 80 people in Europe, 65 of whom work in Amsterdam. The remaining employees are based at offices in the UK, Italy and Moscow.
