Saudi says yes to Denmark

Press Release   •   Jun 08, 2000 16:03 CEST

The Saudi Government has announced that Saudi Arabia is ready to import Danish dairy products once again following the import ban dating back to mid-March. However, the ban on beef imports remains.

The move means that Arla Foods' products will reappear in Saudi stores within the next few weeks. However, owing to production and transport times, normal conditions are not expected to be resumed until after the summer holidays. As staff have been working on other production lines, the effect on manning levels has been limited. The workforce at Bislev and Akafa are expected to cope with production during the summer.
