Arla, the Danish dairy firm, has announced an investment of 300 million SEK (approximately $35 million) in its dairy facility in Gotene, Sweden, to expand its organic range, according to a FoodBev report.
The investment, which follows a previous investment of 95 million SEK ($11 million) in Gotene to expand its butter capabilities, will allow the firm to double the capacity for handling organic milk.
“We are constantly looking into how we can secure the future of our site, find greener and better solutions to be able to deliver good and sustainable products to the whole country”, said Marika Lifbom, Arla’s site director in Gotene. “Every day, our farmer-owners do an incredible job on their farms and with this investment, we can contribute to continued growth for the organic range. The investment will help us work smarter, more efficiently and in larger volumes. The conscious consumer will start buying more and more organic products, and we want to be able to meet that demand”.
