Dano Milk®, one of the fastest growing milk brands in Nigeria was launched in the early 1980’s. It’s owned and produced by Arla Foods, a farmer-owned company based in Denmark. Over the years, Dano brand has evolved tremendously and today, it remains locally relevant and benefits from its international footprint in an array of markets in the East, Africa, Bangladesh and parts of Latin America.
Arla is the 4th largest dairy company in the world, with major foot prints across several categories such as Cheese, Butter, Milk Powder, UHT, Evaporated Milk and Yogurt. Some of its prominent brands include Arla, Lurpak, Castello, Puck, Apetina, Cocio & Dano
Arla Foods is a dairy cooperative, owned by over 13,500 farmers. Our philosophy of producing natural, healthy and high quality dairy products for Nigerian consumers dates back to the 1880s when dairy farmers in Denmark and Sweden joined forces with one common goal – to produce and provide the best dairy products.
Because we are farmer-owned, all of our earnings go back to our farmer owners. This means that when people buy our products the money is split equally between each litre of milk that our owners supply. That’s also a key part of our cooperative philosophy.
As a farmer- owned company, we are committed to high standards of animal welfare, product quality and food safety for Nigerian consumers.
Our quality assurance programme for our farm is called Arlagarden® and it is an important part of Arla Foods’ strategy. Arlagarden® specifies the requirements for milk production on farms which supply milk to Arla and is our way of ensuring high quality of the products our Nigerian consumers enjoy.
