Arla deal with Yeo Valley given green light by CMA #teamdairy

A deal between Arla Foods UK and Yeo Valley has been given the green light by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).

 

It follows an announcement by the two firms in February to form a partnership on liquid milk, butter and cheese.

 

Arla said the CMA had approved the deal and that the transaction was now unconditional.

 

Ash Amirahmadi, managing director, Arla Foods UK, said he was looking forward to legal completion and working together on growing the Yeo Valley organic dairy brand in the UK.

“This is significant news for our business, the industry and our farmer owners," he said.

 

“We want to maximise the growth in organic dairy products and continued investment in the Yeo Valley and Arla brands will be key to this.

“We particularly want to extend a warm welcome to the dairy farmers within the Coombe Farm Milk Pool who are partner suppliers to Waitrose Duchy Organic.

 

“Our co-operative beliefs and values are very aligned and we look forward to working closely in the coming months.”

 

The Yeo Valley yogurt, ice cream, cream and desserts business will continue to be run independently and remain under the ownership of the Mead family.
