Arla etablerer Brexit-kontor

Når Storbritannien i 2019 træder ud af EU, betyder det en ny virkelighed for Arla, som har sit største enkeltmarked i landet. Derfor er det vigtigt at kende de nye samarbejdsvilkår i detaljer og samtidigt vigtigt, at forklare virksomhedens interesser overfor de involverede EU-politikere og embedsmænd. På den baggrund har Arla pr. 1. august etableret et særligt Brexitkontor, som ledes af Helena Fagraeus, der hidtil har arbejdet med forskellige strategiske og kommercielle forhold i virksomheden, skriver Maelkeritidene.
– Jeg skal lede arbejdet med de forskellige scenarier samt evaluere vores forretningsstrategi i Storbritannien for at sikre, at Arla står stærkt efter Brexit, siger Helena Fagraeus til ejerbladet.
– Ved at vurdere hvilken betydning Brexit kan få for forskellige scenarier kan vi definere mulige veje fremad for Arla, siger hun og påpeger samtidigt, at der vil være fokus både på samhandel og adgang til det britiske marked samt på at sikre Arlas britiske andelshavere lige vilkår i konkurrencen med de øvrige mælkeproducenter i EU.

Dairy Should be High Priority in Brexit Negotiations, Says Dairy UK

“It is vitally important that the UK dairy industry is recognised and prioritised during Brexit negotiations”, Dr David Dobbin, Chairman of Dairy UK, said speaking at Dairy UK’s Brexit and Beyond industry seminar in London and at the organisation’s annual dinner.

Dr Dobbin said it is in the national interest for dairy to be given due prominence during the Brexit process. He said: “The importance and relevance of dairy must not be forgotten or traded to the benefit of other sectors.”

Dr Dobbin told delegates that the dairy industry in the UK sees opportunities as well as threats in Brexit but everyone wants stability. He said the UK government and all political decision-makers must ensure that: trading arrangements with the EU without tariff and non-tariff barriers are continued; the relationship with the EU is clarified before negotiating free trade agreements with third countries; there is continued access to skilled and unskilled labour; any review of existing regulations or the introduction of new regulations will not create non-tariff barriers; UK farmers are not disadvantaged compared to their European neighbours.

Dairy UK worries about Brexit after PM’s speech

”With 80% of UK dairy exports currently going to EU countries, any disruption to current agreements would have an extensive and costly impact on our industry.

We support the Government’s commitment to put in place a strong, swift and effective transitional process and urge them to avoid any kind of interruption to current trade agreements with EU countries or the creation of counterproductive tariff or non-tariff barriers.

What we absolutely cannot see is a fall back to WTO default terms as the tariffs within WTO arrangements would have disastrous consequences for dairy trade”, Dr Judith Bryans, Chief Executive of Dairy UK says.

Arla Foods UK acts on brexit

Arla Foods UK’s managing director Tomas Pietrangeli has issued a call to the food and farming industry to work together to form one single voice around Brexit and he has committed to identify ways to make this happen.

He stresses th need for the food and farming industries to maintain access to labour and tariff-free access to the single market after Brexit.

He mentions that the UK dairy industry seeks to access foreign markets and that severe damage could be done if the deal negotiated does not have the industry’s needs at its heart.

Arla påverkas av Brexit

Omkring 80 procent av Arlas totala globala omsättning kommer från EU och över 25 procent kommer från Storbritannien. Arla kommer därför att fokusera på att minimera eventuella negativa effekter för företaget efter Brexit och att arbeta för att behålla den fria handeln mellan Storbritannien och EU som är så viktig för företagets verksamhet.

Arla har skapat en arbetsgrupp i företagsledningen för att skydda, följa och förbereda företaget för den utveckling som följer efter Brexit-omröstningen.
