Arla Foods restructure in Sweden

Printer-friendly version

Dairy giant Arla has announced major restructuring in Sweden which could see the loss of between 400 and 500 jobs while investment planned by the company will create just over 100 new jobs. The company says the market for fresh milk is declining, the market for cottage cheese is growing and it is positioning itself to manufacture more milk powder; white gold for dairy exporters. The major casualty is the fresh milk dairy in Gothenburg where about 300 workers will be affected by the decision. IUF affiliate LIVS is disappointed the company is not signaling a major reinvestment in this region.

LIVS is engaged in negotiations with Arla concerning the restructuring and will be working to save jobs and secure redeployment options.
