Since 2012, when the Lactalis group acquired Skånemejerier AB, Skånemejerier AB and Skånemejerier Ekonomisk förening have had a well-functioning collaboration. As the original agreement expires in 2022, negotiations have been ongoing during the year, and has now landed in a new long-term agreement. The compensation has since the beginning been higher than the market price and will continue as so in the new agreement. Skånemejerier AB has also increased its sustainability bonus by 5 öre, to support the work for sustainable milk production.
– We are very pleased to have reached an agreement. We are proud of our cooperation with Skånemejerier economic association and our fantastic milk suppliers and their persistent work for sustainable agriculture with a focus on climate, biodiversity, and animal care. They supply a continually high-quality dairy raw material, which we in turn develop into good, nutritious products for our customers and consumers, José Antonio Lalanda, CEO of Skånemejerier AB, says in a press release.
The new agreement between Skånemejerier AB and Skånemejerier Ekonomisk förening includes both volume and price commitments.
