Our philosophy for producing natural, healthy and high quality dairy products dates back to the 1880s, when farmers in Denmark and Sweden joined forces with one common goal: to produce and supply the best dairy products. Since we are owned by farmers, all our income is returned to farmers. This means that when people buy our products, the money is equally divided between each liter of milk that our suppliers supply. It is also a key part of our cooperative philosophy. In our newly built Arla Innovation Center, along with the product development teams in the UK, Sweden, China, Germany, the Netherlands, Finland and the United States, we passionately innovate from farm to table to create future dairy products in the world. We do this with the most advanced scientific and consumer laboratories and pilot plant of 2000 m2, with greater flexibility to install any kind of process needed for our innovative projects. The Innovation Center is at the heart of Denmark’s Food Cluster, ranked first in the EU in terms of business investment in research and development of food and beverages, and our researchers are strongly linked and are innovating across the whole of Arla and its markets.
