Arla Boosts Climate Impact Reduction Measures With New Programme

Arla Foods has launched the FarmAhead Customer Partnership programme as it steps up measures to reduce the climate impact of dairy farming.

The FarmAhead Customer Partnership links Arla's data-driven climate reduction efforts with customer demands for dairy products with a lower carbon footprint.

All of Arla’s 200 million kilograms of fresh milk pool in the Danish retail and foodservice segment will become part of this programme.

The move will allow customers in retail and foodservice to become partners on climate reduction initiatives taking place on Arla’s farms.

It will also provide customers with access to data that can be used in their own ESG reporting and to support their scope 3 climate goals.


'Accelerate The Green Transition'

Peter Giørtz-Carlsen, executive vice president and COO of Arla Foods stated, “Through our FarmAhead Customer Partnership, we are collaborating with our customers to make a difference and accelerate the green transition.

“Through the programme, we make our extensive data available to our customers and thereby support their climate action and ESG reporting needs. In return, we unite customers with our farmer-owners to build more knowledge, reduce the carbon footprint and increase biodiversity, for generations to come.”

In 2023, the programme was first launched in the UK as the 'Customer Sustainabilty Programme', where contracts with customers including Aldi, Asda and Morrisons cover more than one billion kilograms of milk.

“The response from our customers has been exceptionally positive, reflecting a strong interest in joining forces with Arla to lead the way in the green transition. With such momentum, we are now launching our FarmAhead Customer Partnership programme across Arla’s further core European markets during 2024," added Giørtz-Carlsen.
