Arla has scooped a top honour at The Grocer Gold Awards 2004 by being crowned best own label supplier.
Arla was up against top suppliers like Dairy Crest, McBride and Premier Foods, but the judges awarded Arla the accolade. They pointed to Arla's excellent account management skills, reliable deliveries and consistent product quality, along with the company's close working relationship with the retailers.
Arla Foods UK plc is home to some of the UK’s leading dairy brands including Cravendale, Lurpak and Anchor. Processing approximately two billion litres of milk a year Arla continues to be one of the UK’s leading dairy companies and a supplier of fresh liquid milk and cream to the top seven retailers.
Over 2,500 daily deliveries are made directly to stores nationwide and Arla brands can be found across the dairy category. As well as the leader of the butter, spreads and margarine sector, and a major supplier of other added value products including flavoured milk and cheese, Arla continues to build working relationships with Arla Foods Milk Partnership, a unique group of dairy farmers, which supplies around 90 per cent of Arla's total milk requirements.
Behind this leading business is a team of circa 2,800 people across the UK located at our dairies, distribution centres and head office.
