Estimated 28 million people in the UK making critical choices about their diets based on social pressures
Nearly half (49 per cent) of the UK say they would make big changes to their diets based on what they read on social media, whilst two in five (41 per cent) are unsure of what makes a sustainable diet
Arla and its 2,100 farmer owners are encouraging the nation to look at the full life cycle of food and farming before making drastic decisions to remove entire food groups from their diets.
Following the launch of the global Arla Group Future26 strategy, Arla is announcing new growth ambitions in the UK for the next five years – with a heavy focus on strengthening the sustainability, value and efficiency of dairy.
As part of the growth strategy, Arla will also explore export opportunities out of the UK for the first time as well as the need for more milk, from existing and potentially new farmer owners in the UK.
Arla Foods has initiated preparations to suspend its business in Russia. This will cover both its local operations and imports, which were much reduced by the embargo put in place in 2014.
Arla’s UK business delivered a solid performance throughout 2021 despite continued disruptions from the pandemic, labour shortages and renewed market volatility created by high inflation. The company delivered growth of its branded sales and much-needed returns to its farmer owners who are faced with rising costs whilst continuing to invest in more sustainable milk production.
From 1st July 2022, the Arla on-account price will increase by 2.0 €c/kg for conventional milk and 1.0 €c/kg for organic milk. This will increase Arla’s farmgate milk price for the standard manufacturing litre by 1.66 pence per litre (ppl) to 49.45 ppl for conventional and 0.74 ppl for organic, taking the organic milk price to 55.11 ppl. The quarterly currency exchange rate adjustment will negatively impact the on-account price by 0.12 ppkg.
From 1 June 2022, there will be an increase of 5.0 €c/kg to the Arla on-account price for both conventional and organic milk. This will increase Arla’s farmgate milk price for the standard manufacturing litre by 4.49 pence per litre to 47.79 ppl for conventional and 54.34 ppl for organic milk.
Brits don’t give a Buzz: 63 per cent of Hay fever sufferers say symptoms are ‘worth it’ in the name of nature
Over 2,000 Arla farmers are issuing an apology to hay fever sufferers after their successful Bee Road initiative has led to an increase in bee-friendly planting, and in turn, pollen, leading to more itchy eyes and runny noses this summer.
The nation sees ‘planting pollinator patches for bees’ as the most important to encourage biodiversity. However, with a whopping 45 million of us believed to be suffering from hay fever, many will be affected as a result.*
