Arla, the Danish dairy firm, has announced an investment of SEK 300 million (approx. $35 million) in its dairy facility in Götene, Sweden, to expand its organic range.
The investment, which follows an investment of SEK 95 million ($11 million) in Götene to expand its butter capabilities, will allow doubling 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. 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,” said Marika Lifbom, Arla’s site director in Götene. “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”.
