Our responsibility

Health & Nutrition

Supplying safe products is our top priority. Furthermore, we want to provide products that match consumers’ nutritional needs and, at the same time, inspire better food habits. We do this by providing a variety of nutritious products as well as recipes and transparent information.

Health Strategy

In 2014 we launched our health strategy, focusing on helping consumers live a healthier life. The strategy’s 3 elements are to promote a healthy diet, inspire good food habits, and develop products that meet nutritional criteria.

Good food habits

We want to champion good food habits and inspire a healthy life. A healthy daily diet leaves room for the occasional indulgence, which is also part of a good life.

We are making good progress:

  • We engaged in food campaigns in the UK and the Netherlands. 
  • In 2016, 1550 teenagers attended our food camps in Denmark, which focused on health, food and sustainability. 
  • Also in 2016, Arla’s Swedish website was one of the top 3 in the country for food inspiration.
  • In Nigeria we organised a roadshow to encourage healthy living and good eating habits. A free health check was also part of this initiative.

Nutrition

We build partnerships with our retail customers to promote healthy products and collaborate with scientists to learn more about the health benefits of milk and natural ingredients.

In 2016 we introduced Arla® Nutrition Criteria. The criteria secure great dairy nutrients without too much added sugar, salt or calories. 93% of Arla® branded products in the milk, yogurt and everyday cheese categories comply with the criteria. 

Specific needs

We explore how we can help people live healthier lives and contribute to the fight against global lifestyle diseases and undernutrition.

Food safety

We produce milk, cheese, yogurt and other dairy products, it is crucial that each product meets the high quality standards that give our consumers confidence in our products.

98% of our production volume is manufactured at sites with GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) certification or similar.
