And we can't do it alone; we succeed together as 'One AFI' with colleagues who care about each other, our business, and sustainable societies.
Discover and deliver ingredients for better lives

Now, you can be a key driver too; as an employee in Arla Foods Ingredients you’ll add your skills and energy to discover and deliver all the wonders of whey. Through our life improving whey- and milk-based ingredients you’ll help infants to a better start in life, athletes to lift their performance, patients to better recovery, and all of us to combat lifestyle diseases and eat more nutritious food.
Lead the way from science to nutrition
Innovation is at the heart of what we do at Arla Foods Ingredients. Whether developing new ingredients, new processes or new application opportunities, our goal is to stay at least one step ahead of the competition. That’s why we need talented people with the ability to see things from a fresh perspective and the courage to take challenge status quo. As the whey ingredient supplier that pioneered the first whey proteins for food, we know that even the smallest idea can make all the difference.
We succeed together as 'One AFI'
While our factories may be packed with shiny steel vats, our labs look like something from the space program and our offices are awash in spreadsheets, we are a fundamentally human company. At every one of our global locations, you’ll find supportive colleagues, engaged leaders and a culture of openness, respect and recognition. We are not too large to be agile, and you’ll enjoy room to maneuver, to take initiative and to follow your curiosity. We are creating wonders here because every employee is engaged and committed, and takes responsibility for results, quality, safety and performance.
We are born sustainable
Arla Foods Ingredients is built on sustainability: Our company was founded with the sole purpose of turning whey, a waste product from cheese manufacturing, into new nutritional ingredients for human consumption. Getting the most out of a raw material like milk and whey is the essence of sustainability. If you consider the significant carbon footprint of milk production itself, it would seem almost impossible to accept the waste of the 30-40% of dairy solids that goes in the whey. Today, our sustainability efforts include an ambitious reduction of our CO2 footprint and an ongoing cooperation with international relief agencies to help alleviate the effects of malnourishment in children in deprived countries.
