Consumers continue to have big taste for Arla’s trusted brands
During the first half of 2021, Arla continued to navigate the operational challenges presented by Covid-19. The global dairy cooperative delivered financial results and branded sales volumes at the top end of expectations driven by retail sales and paid out a competitive pre-paid milk price to farmer owners. However, the inflationary environment created by Covid-19 is expected to challenge the cooperative and its farmer owners with increasing production costs due to higher prices on fuel, energy, packaging and feed.

Arla and its farmer owners are closing the loop on the renewable electricity produced on farm in a move that reduces the carbon footprint of Arla’s milk, secures farmers a better price for their power and gives the dairy cooperative direct access to more green electricity certificates.
