From next week, the Swedish furniture chain, IKEA, which has around 200 furniture outlets in 30 countries, will serve Swedish cheese from Arla in their restaurants.
IKEA’s Swedish Food Markets offer customers the chance to get acquainted with Swedish food, i.e. herring, crispbread, Swedish meatballs – and now Swedish cheese from Arla Foods (the sliced cheeses, Wästgöta Kloster Röd and Svart as well as Hushållost). The cheeses are produced at Arla Foods’ plant in Alexander in Götene.
“This is a good opportunity for Arla,” says Mattias Olsson, Deputy Customer Manager, Restaurang & Störkök. “We’ll have a new market for our cheeses and we’ll have the opportunity to present them to consumers across the world.”
Arla Foods is an international dairy company owned by 9,700 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.
