More value ahead for private label customers

Arla Foods transfers production of private label infant formulas to Arla Foods Ingredients

Infant formula marketeers that have relied on Arla Foods to produce their products can expect an even more competitive, high quality service in the future.

As part of the continuing effort to meet customer needs, the Third Party Manufacturing business unit has been transferred from Arla Foods to Arla Foods Ingredients, which already develops and produces ingredient solutions for infant nutrition.

“The food safety, technical and nutritional competencies needed to support our business units for infant nutrition production and ingredients are similar in many ways. Both face the same demands for ever higher quality standards,” says Henrik Andersen, CEO of Arla Foods Ingredients.

“By bringing the two units together, we hope to generate new opportunities that will strengthen our cooperation with customers and develop our mutual business.”

The Third Party Manufacturing team is unchanged following the transfer to Arla Foods Ingredients and will continue to operate as a separate business unit.

Infant nutrition products are produced at a dedicated plant in Denmark.
