Internship Sustainable Polymer Chemistry

In 2019, FrieslandCampina has signed Ellen MacArthur's The New Plastics Economy Commitment, committing to work to a 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025 or earlier. Currently, conventional plastic coatings are still the common use to control moisture loss and mold spoilage upon ripening of the cheese.

During your internship you will be working on finding sustainable alternatives for these current standards. In this role you will collaborate closely with several departments (procurement, sales, NPD, technology) and third parties (coating producers, customers) to find a feasible alternative that serves all stakeholders best.
