- 26 June 2001
- Press contact
The 18 employees at Arla Foods' Disenå Dairy in Norway have been informed that its closure is being considered. The situation has arisen following the cancellation of licensed production with effect from the end of the year. Despite many efforts to find an alternative use for the dairy, no solution has so far materialised.
Acquired by the former Arla in 1998, Disenå Dairy has longstanding traditions for the production of mould cheese. The dairy began life as a producer of camembert at a dairy adjacent to Maarund Gaard, where production has continued until today.
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.
