The Arla cooperative has roots back to the 1880s and has since then been growing through local, national and cross-border mergers with farmer-owned dairies. Today, dairy farmers continue to see the strength of owning the business that processes their milk into a range of dairy products.
Arla is the world’s 4th largest cooperative dairy company measured on milk volume and is a cooperative owned by 9,400 dairy farmers in Sweden, Denmark, the UK, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg. Being a cooperative means that the company’s profits go directly to the farmers. Arla Foods has 20,000 employees in 30 countries worldwide.
Arla is one of the strongest players in the international dairy arena, with a wide range of dairy products of highest quality. Well-known brands like Lurpak® and Castello® belong to the Arla family. Arla is also the world’s largest manufacturer of organic products.
Arla’s vision in Asia is to provide natural, nutritious, affordable and inspirational products to Asian consumers.
