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. Meet Per, David, Vagn and Alfred - four of our dedicated farmer owners.
Because we’re owned by the same farmers who produce our milk, we know everything we need to know - every step of the way. That’s why you can be sure that Arla dairy products are based on cows’ milk of a very high quality.
What does it mean that Arla is owned by dairy farmers - and how does it benefit you as a consumer?
Our philosophy of producing natural, healthy and high quality dairy products dates back to the 1880s when dairy farmers in Denmark and Sweden joined forces with one common goal: To produce and provide the best dairy products.
Because we are farmer-owned, all of our earnings go back to our farmer owners. This means that when people buy our products the money is split equally between each litre of milk that our owners supply. That’s also a key part of our cooperative philosophy.
