Arla is a global dairy business owned by 12,700 farmers in seven countries. We aim to grow the value of our farmer owners’ milk by developing our position as a leading global dairy company that adds value to people’s lives. We operate our business in a sustainable and responsible manner to safeguard and develop the company’s reputation and profitability, while caring for people and delivering growth.

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.

Arla has a natural interest in high animal welfare standards, milk quality and state-of-the-art production. We strive for the best environmental practices, and work to continuously reduce our climate impact and optimise use of resources along our entire value chain – from cow to consumer.

In September 2015, the UN adopted 17 new Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The SDGs take a broad perspective and are relevant for all countries, rich as well as poor. For these goals to become reality, all countries, businesses and organisations should embrace whatever change is necessary. For Arla, the journey has already begun. While we support all SDGs, we focus our efforts on the three goals, where Arla can have the biggest positive impact. These are goals 2, 8 and 12.

As test-case company, ARLA offers you deeper insights into the business opportunities and challenges we face. AU Challenge is a great way to put your skills to the test and to show us your extraordinary potential.
