act of raising salaries


Explanation:
loon = salary
veredeling = improvement
bedrijf might mean "action" or "business," but in this context it seems to be more reasonably translated "action." Given the context, I wonder whether this isn't the name of a policy for awarding raises.

contract refining company


Explanation:
A 'loonbedrijf' is a contracting company

Within the context you have given I think that a contract refining company i.e. refining under contract to various companies would seem a reasonable explanation

breeding company


Explanation:
"veredelingsbedrijf" is a regular term in agriculture, meaning a farm producing the material which regular farms use as seed, so it would be a contract breeding company.
