Chairman of Arla Foods to Retire

Chairman of Arla Foods to Retire
April 11
14:32 2011

Ove Moberg is retiring as chairman of Arla Foods on May 26th. with effect from the next ordinary meeting of the Board of Representatives on May 26. He has served for 19 years as a member of the board of directors and four years as chairman of the Scandinavian dairy co-operative.

Ove Moberg has headed up Arla Foods during a crucial period in the company’s history. In 2010, he and his colleagues on the board decided to retain Arla’s co-operative structure and spearheaded moves to establish a new capital model that required a considerable capital injection from the company’s owners. The capital model is now firmly embedded in Arla’s membership base.

Most recently, in March 2011, the board of directors under Ove Møberg gained the full support from the board of representatives for the merger with the German dairy company Hansa Milch, which has resulted in German co-operative members becoming co-owners of Arla Foods.

Since his election as chairman in 2007, Ove Møberg has been committed to developing the partnership between Swedish and Danish co-operative members. Now he can look back on a period of strong Swedish-Danish relations – thanks to his insistence on transparency and dialogue. This has also formed the basis for the inclusion of German milk producers among Arla’s owners.

Ove Moberg joined the board of directors in the then MD Foods in 1992. He was elected chairman of Arla Foods in May 2007.
