Arla Foods Ingredients has officially opened its new €120 million lactose manufacturing plant in Jutland, Denmark. The factory will produce 80,000 tonnes of lactose every year and is situated adjacent to Arla Foods Ingredients’ existing whey processing facility, Denmark Protein.

Lactose from the factory will predominantly be sold into the vibrant infant nutrition sector. Among the products made at the facility will be Arla Foods Ingredients’ premium ‘dry blend’ lactose, which enables infant formula manufacturers to increase their output dramatically without compromising safety or requiring significant capital investment.

ArlaFoodsIngredientsStaging2Luis Cubel, Sales Director for Arla Foods Ingredients’ Permeate & Lactose Business, says: “Our new lactose factory in Jutland is part of our drive to keep pace with growth in demand for high quality lactose in the infant nutrition sector. It is not just about serving our customers now, but also serving them in the future, with a consistent, reliable supply of lactose day in, day out.”

Henrik Andersen, CEO of Arla Foods Ingredients, adds: “The future direction of our business is about meeting demand in growth segments. Where it is necessary, we are not afraid to invest in the production facilities required to do that, as this modern facility demonstrates. Meeting demand for premium dairy ingredients is a fundamental pillar of our ‘Quality starts here’ brand platform, and we are dedicated to ensuring our customers can source the products they want at all times.”

Arla Foods Ingredients is a global leader in natural whey ingredients for products in a range of categories – from sports nutrition, beverages, bakery, dairy and ice cream to clinical and infant nutrition.
