The company was ranked among the 100 most sustainable businesses of 2017 for its contributions to the sustainable development of the country.
Its programme for the milk industry development, Den Dom Dom, which builds new schools in disadvantaged areas, provides nutrition education and does research, bring benefits to the community.
