Arla tightens the control on animal welfare

Arla sets up a so called zero vision (nollvison red.) concerning animal welfare on the farms. The vision is part of the updated quality program ’Arlagården’.

– The zero vision means that all cows, at all Arlafarms, should feel good every day. Setting up a zero vision and measuring the development means that we work even more focused and achieve progress faster, says Patrik Hansson, CEO of Arla Sweden. For instance, every cow will be checked four times a year – and more unannounced controls will be carried out according to the updated program.

During the thirteen years that the quality program Arlagården has been in use, 16,000 audits have carried out. They show that the absolute majority of the approximately 2,500 farms in Sweden work very well. But there are a few percent of the farms that have problems, Arla explains in a press release.
