Arla Foods, the dairy foods group, is holding its annual shareholder meeting tomorrow.

At the end of last year the company announced it had taken on a key contract to supply all the milk requirements of Asda.

Also at the end of last year the company announced it would be merging with Netherlands-based Campina in a deal that would create the world’s largest farmer-owned dairy co-op.

The new company, Campina Arla, will boast 21,000 producer-members.
