Company Profile

FARMER OWNED
Arla is owned by the farmers who produce most of our milk.
They are passionate about producing high quality milk in a responsible way every day.

HISTORY
Way back in the 1880’s, dairy farmers in Denmark and Sweden formed small cooperatives to invest in common dairy production facilities. By doing this they made efficient use of their milk and higher quality products. The earnings they made from their milk were equally split between the dairy farmers and together they built a good future for themselves and the next generation on their farm.
Over the years, the cooperative idea proved increasingly attractive. Small farmer cooperatives merged and became stronger. They expanded from local to regional to national cooperatives. In 2000, the largest Danish dairy cooperative merged with its Swedish counterpart and Arla Foods, the first cross-border dairy cooperative, was formed.

The cooperative idea also flourished in other countries and through recent mergers cooperative owners in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg have joined Arla Foods. And we will continue to grow stronger...

OUR RESPONSIBILITY
We want to grow our business. But we know that long-term success is only achieved if we are able to add value to your life while acting responsibly towards the environment and the communities we’re a part of.
It’s important for us that you trust us. If you’re interested in learning more about how we conduct our business, our principles are outlined in our Code of Conduct (pdf) and how we work to adhere to this Code is reported annually in the CSR reports.

RESEARCH AND INNOVATION
The consumer is at the heart of all Arla’s activities. Only by serving the - known and yet unknown – needs of our consumers will Arla continue to secure its position in Europe while developing business in Middle East, Northern Africa, Russia and China.
This demands having innovation as an absolute top priority at Arla. We focus on balancing incremental and radical innovation across the business with a primary target that 10% of our turnover should come from new product development.
