Cvba Milcobel was founded on 8 November 2004 and is the result of a merger between the two cooperations which existed back then, i.e. BZU MELKAANVOER cvba and cvba Belgomilk.

On 1 January 2005 cvba Milcobel became the buyer of the milk for the members of these two cooperations.

On May 16, 2005 the respective extraordinary general shareholder meetings approved the merger. This implies that all member dairy farmers of BZU milk supply and Belgomilk have joined Milcobel.
