Åke Hantoft from Sweden will succeed Ove Møberg from Denmark as chairman of Arla Foods following Ove Møberg’s decision to step down after four years.

“The role as chairman in Arla is one of the most important positions you can aspire to as a dairy farmer. Arla is both a global and a local dairy company with a strong market position. Our company has a strong strategy for future growth, which will ensure that we as cooperative owners can receive a healthy milk price. I am proud to be entrusted with this position and I very much look forward to fulfilling my duties as chairman, “says Åke Hantoft.

Åke Hantoft has been Vice-Chairman of Arla Foods since 2003. In 1998, he joined the board of Arla ekonomisk förening, which merged with the Danish MD Foods in 2000 to become Arla Foods.
