Our standards

Food safety and traceability

We know that you will only keep buying our products if our milk, yoghurt, cheese and butter tastes great and helps keep you healthy.

Arla farmers have their own, unique, quality programme Arlagården® that sets high standards for how milk is produced. We always know from which farms the milk in your Arla products come from.

On our Dairies all products are produced under the highest possible food safety system and all dairies are accredited according to one or more quality and food safety standards. We have a comprehensive training schedule and make sure we’re inline with all the latest technologies.

If we unexpectedly find any breech, anywhere, you can be sure that we will respond immediately to report to the relevant food authorities, call back potentially affected products, find the cause and solve the problem.
