Description and history
Dutch Lady Milk Industries Berhad commenced manufacturing operations in October 1965, replacing imported sweetened condensed milk with its own locally manufactured product. In 1970 it introduced locally packed full cream milk into the market. Locally packed Dutch Baby Modified Baby Food followed in 1975 to complement the Dutch Baby product range. The following year the Ultra Heat Treated Milk plant began operations. In 1983 the Dutch Baby brand name was changed to Dutch Lady for product positioning purposes. Sterilised milk was also locally produced in that year. 1988 saw the launch of ‘Dutch Baby Growing Up Milk’ and yoghurts. The Company ventured into the chilled milk products market in 1985 and ‘Calcimex’, a high calcium non-fat milk powder, in 1995.
In 2000, the Company disposed of its 29% investment respectively in the associated companies, Susu Lembu Asli Sdn Bhd and Susu Lembu Asli Marketing Sdn Bhd for an aggregate consideration of RM1m and a gain of RM997,000 for the Company. The sale was made so as to enable the Company to establish its own distribution for its chilled products.
The Dutch Lady Nutrition Centre (DLNC) was launched in 2000. DLNC is dedicated to bringing ‘Goodness For Life’ to all Malaysians by helping consumers and their families enhance their health and nutritional well-being.
