Announcing the new Arla Foods' organisation, Managing Director Jens Bigum emphasised that not everything will be in place from day one of the merger. The various responsibilities will, however, be transferred to the new divisional managements and Group staff as soon as possible. The final structure of the organisation is expected to be completed by June 1 and become effective by July 1.

The amalgamation of all business units should be completed by October 1 when the resulting synergies should begin to take effect.

Arla Foods is an international dairy company owned by 9,900 farmers from Denmark, Sweden, the UK, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Arla Foods is one of the leading players in the international dairy arena with well-known brands like Arla®, Lurpak®, Puck® and Castello®. Arla Foods is focused on providing good dairy nourishment from sustainable farming and operations and is also the world's largest manufacturer of organic dairy products.
