MD Foods' management and staff from Denmark and the UK will begin work within the Group's new European Works Council (EWC) from November. Initially, the Works Council will consist of 6 Danish and 3 UK staff representatives.

The new European Works Council has been set up in accordance with EU regulations which require works councils to be established in companies employing staff of more than 150 in other EU countries. So far, only MD Foods in Denmark and MD Foods plc in the UK meet these criteria.

The EWC will act as a forum for the exchange of views and information between management and staff. This is expected to assist the development of the group as a whole as well as its staff.

Arla Foods is one of the leading players in the international dairy arena with well-known brands like Arla®, Lurpak®, Puck® and Castello®.
