Arla has announced an investment of SEK 300 million (approx. $35 million) in its dairy facility in Götene, Sweden, as it aims to expand its organic range.
The investment will see the site’s capacity for handling organic milk doubled, from one to two day’s production time.
This announcement follows the news of an investment made by Arla earlier this, where the company invested SEK 95 million in Götene to expand its butter production capabilities.
”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.
She added: “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”.
Production is expected to start in spring 2023.
