Arla Foods has no plans to acquire, merge or partner with any other Chinese dairy industry players under its recently-unveiled five-year strategy, a spokesperson for the Denmark-based co-operative has revealed.
Dairy giant Arla Foods has reported a net profits decrease for the first six months of the year, as the continuing impact of the European dairy price war cancelled out revenue growth in the firm’s core and growth markets.
Dairy processing giant Arla has revealed to DairyReporter.com that it has overhauled its research strategy for 2012, to prioritise product innovation and tailor its portfolio to specific world markets.
The UK arm of Scandinavian based dairy giant Arla has installed a new ‘state of the art’ pipe cleaning technology at its creamery in Stourton that it says will help it reduce product waste and save water.
Arla has defended itself after a charity report attacked its corporate social responsibility record in Bangladesh, and accused it of benefiting unfairly from EU subsidies that impoverished local producers.
