Arla Food for Health Overview

Arla Food for Health was established in 2015 as a consortium between Arla Foods amba, Arla Foods Ingredients Group P/S, Aarhus University and University of Copenhagen.

The Centre is founded in the spirit of exploring the competences between the four stakeholders to carry out  best-in-class dairy health and nutrition research and become a platform for knowledge sharing, training and education.

Read the case study from the Innovation Capability Assessment performed by The Innovation Board to get a better understanding of why Arla Food for Health has got off to such a good start - which it has compared to the majority of similar open innovation initiatives.
