FrieslandCampina, one of the world's leading dairy companies, was a recipient of the Winsemius Award for Sustainability & Innovation 2017 in the Food and Nutrition category.
The award is for innovation behind FrieslandCampina's Friso Online e-commerce platform which was launched in 2015. For 2017, the channel is projected to constitute about 20% of Friso's sales in Singapore. Friso Online allows consumers in Singapore to purchase Friso baby products from the dedicated site, offering free delivery and a host of different rewards. The Friso brand is now the leading baby formula brand online.
The adoption of a 'test and optimize' strategy in the development and management of the platform has enabled a critical understanding of user preferences, allowing FrieslandCampina to both customise and adapt the platform to provide the best possible user experience, as well as generate insight that can inform business decisions.
