half year report 2023

Arla Foods announces Half-Year Results for 2023: Finding the Right Balance in a Downward Market

As expected, the first half of 2023 was dominated by continued inflationary pressure, declining dairy commodity prices, and a shift in consumer behaviors towards discount channels and private label products. This impacted Arla’s performance in the first half of 2023, however, the cooperative was able to soften the negative impact of the market dynamics and deliver a performance price of 49.7 EUR-cent/kg milk, enabling a half-year supplementary payment to farmer owners of 1 EUR-cent/kg milk based on the half-year volumes as planned.
