Abstract:This thesis focusses on the allocation process of cream within FrieslandCampina. Cream is a by-product of raw milk and within FC this by-product is released on several different production locations. Cream is a residual for most of the factories, but the three butter and butteroil factories, located in Noordwijk, Den Bosch and Lochem, use this cream as an input to produce butter(oil). At this moment, the process of allocating cream is not functioning well. The amount of cream that is supplied at the production locations differs a lot from what was planned by the department Milk Logistics. In this research we come up with a Mixed Integer Linear Programming model that valorises and allocates the cream.
