Our capabilities

Enhanced performance Manufacturing advanced proteins

Introducing the new factory where we produce market-leading, high-quality hydrolysates that promote training gains for sports enthusiasts.

Arla Foods Ingredients’ whey protein hydrolysates are premium products for the sports nutrition industry, documented to be an effective form of protein for athletes, and produced at standards that take quality to new heights. Quality like this is possible because we produce proteins for some of the most demanding consumers – not just for sportspeople who demand a lot from their muscles, but for infants and patients, too.

In 2016, Arla Foods Ingredients opened the doors to the one of the world’s most advanced hydrolysates factories. Located in Denmark, the €40 million facility can produce approximately 4,000 tonnes of high-quality whey and casein hydrolysates annually. The factory features state-of-the-art manufacturing technology as well as pilot plants, analytical laboratories and R&D facilities. It complies with – and exceeds – the strictest quality and safety standards in the industry.

Producing hydrolysates that are safe, easy to digest, deliver highly nutritious proteins quickly, and promote the development of infants requires scientifically documented health benefits, excellent solubility, superb microbiology and uniform quality – almost all of which is incorporated in our hydrolysates for sports nutrition, too.

For sports nutrition manufacturers, working with Arla Foods Ingredients ensures access to a secure supply of the one of the world’s best-quality and safest proteins, able to support athletes at all levels to perform better. It’s a powerful partnership in a world where consumers are increasingly seeking reassurance that their bodies are receiving the most effective and healthiest nutrition – and where manufacturers need to diligently protect their brands from all risks.
