Our most important obligation when working with affordable food is to ensure each project fulfils its aims and does not cause any unforeseen negative impacts. Field trips are an important means of obtaining the necessary insights. At Arla Foods Ingredients, we organise and participate in field trips to relevant countries. So far, these include Bangladesh, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Ethiopia.
Fact-finding field trips are the starting point for our engagement in new affordable food projects. The purpose is to meet potential local partners and assess the opportunities for building local supply chains.
