About us

Our responsibility

Our biggest responsibility at Arla Foods Ingredients has always been to make the best possible use of whey – our key raw material. Within just a few decades, this former waste product of cheese production has become a recognised source of high-quality proteins, calcium, lactose and other valuable components. 

Today, there are many other responsibilities we must consider as we grow our business –related to our impact on the planet and on the lives and prosperity of all people.

Sustainable development goals
The UN’s 17 sustainable development goals are a strong guide that inspires and motivates our continuing efforts to minimise our environmental footprint and to support health, nutrition and human rights.In our 2019 corporate responsibility supplement, we report on how our activities are making a small contribution to nine of the goals.

A collective effort
Our journey to becoming a fully sustainable business relies on the collective efforts of our people and our ongoing dialogue with international partners. These collaborative partnerships are key to developing new ways to:

  • supporting good global health and nutrition
  • reducing our consumption of scarce resources
  • optimising quality and food safety – in our own production and in the food industry overall
  • building inclusive models for sustainable business to reduce malnutrition and improve living standards in developing countries

Principles for ethical business
As a subsidiary of Arla Foods, we follow the principles for ethical business set out in the Arla Foods Code of Conduct  and support our suppliers in doing the same. We are also registered with Sedex, the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange...
