FrieslandCampina launched the construction of its new Innovation Centre with fireworks and confetti on 13 December. The dairy company’s new R&D centre housing 400 researchers is going up on the Wageningen campus.
The original plan was for the FrieslandCampina CEO to strike the first pile during the festive launch, but there were still cables in the ground under the building site, and nobody knew what they were for. The cables will be removed over the coming days. 'If Wageningen suddenly suffers power cuts, we'll know why', joked the master of ceremonies.
