Arla Foods is a 100 per cent farmer owned cooperative, owned by 13,500 European dairy farmers, 2,800 of whom are British. Arla is proud to produce award-winning cheeses from British and Danish cheesemakers and farmers. Our rich variety of cheeses are produced with care at our creameries, which are devoted to preserving the heritage of fine cheesemaking. Some of our creameries have been established for over a hundred years and still use traditional methods that have been passed down through generations of passionate cheesemakers. Many tasks are still done by hand and others use the latest technology to bring you the highest-quality range of cheeses.
In the UK, Arla Foods is home to some of the country's leading dairy brands including Anchor, Castello, Lurpak and Cravendale. Not only is Arla the UK’s number one dairy company, by turnover and milk pool, it is the largest supplier of both butter and spreads and cheese in the country. The business has a yearly combined milk pool of circa 3.2 billion litres and a turnover of £2.2 billion.
