Arla avskedar ytterligare 140

Arla presenterar ytterligare förändringar av ett antal företagsfunktioner, däribland Marketing, Supply Chain/Logistics, Finance, International och HR.

140 tjänster beräknas bli övertaliga inom de områden som påverkas. Det är i huvudsak Arlas huvudkontor i Århus, Danmark, som påverkas, men även ett fåtal tjänster på företagets kontor på andra platser i Europa och Nordamerika. I Sverige påverkas 12 tjänster, varav flertalet är vakanser som inte har tillsatts på grund av det pågående Calcium-programmet.

De flesta förändringar som nu presenteras kommer att påverka Arlas marknadsorganisation eftersom Arla siktar på att förenkla den kommersiella matrisen och stärka Arlas position genom att säkra snabbare lanseringar på marknaden.

”De förändringar som vi presenterar idag kommer att skapa en enklare och starkare marknadsföringsmodell för våra varumärken och göra att vi snabbare kan möta lokala behov på både våra europeiska kärnmarknader och på våra nyare marknader i Asien och Afrika. Det är en del av våra ansträngningar att skapa nära relationer med både lokala kunder och länders regeringar för att ta itu med några av de största utmaningarna som rör hälsa och hållbarhet”, säger Arlas koncernchef Peder Tuborgh.

Arla’s farmers call for no brexit

Arla Foods joined farmer organisations from the United Kingdom (UK), Denmark, The Netherlands, Re-public of Ireland, France and Germany to call for the UK government and the European Union to pull out all the stops to avoid a No Deal BREXIT.

The call was made during the ‘Beyond Brexit: Farming for our Future’ conference in Whitehall, London on 25 October, which brought together farmers, government officials and businesses from across the UK and five European countries for the first time.

“It is important that the future relationship between the UK and EU remains open and farmers on both sides of the channel have a level playing field.” said Peter Giørtz-Carlsen Executive Vice President of Arla Europe.

With BREXIT negotiations stalled, the prospect of a no deal is very real. Arla has consistently advocated against a so called hard BREXIT, putting forward a positive solution which promotes free trade and high animal and food safety standards.
