Arla at Summit: Partnerships to Ensure Food Safety, Security

28 August 2019

DENMARK - Access to safe, nutritious and sufficient food for all is a key theme at this week’s World Food Summit 2019 in Copenhagen. Tim Ørting Jørgensen, Executive Vice President of Arla International, will talk about the importance of public-private partnerships to ensure food safety and food security.

When key policy makers, academia, business leaders and civil society come together this week at World Food Summit, they will to discuss how the global food system can be transformed into a sustainable and healthy global food system in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Arla is increasingly mindful of its role as one of the world’s leading dairy cooperatives and the need to integrate the SDGs into the business plans to ensure long-term positive impact for all stakeholders. With public-private partnerships, Arla contributes to increase food safety and food security in the dairy sector in countries such as China, Bangladesh and Nigeria.

“No-one can solve these issues alone. We need multi-stakeholder partnerships with a combination of public, business and civil constituencies who engage together with their individual competencies and abilities. Governments and NGO’s should see businesses as a potential partner and benefit from our commercial perspective and knowledge of the sector to ensure long-term sustainable models with end-to-end focus and commercially viability. The World Food Summit is a great place to discuss the challenges and opportunities we face together,” says Mr Jørgensen.

The World Food Summit takes place from 29-30 August in Copenhagen, Denmark. Mr Jørgensen will speak on 30 August at a session about creating synergies between sustainable food production, food safety and food security. See the full programme here.
