During a meeting of the Board of Supervisors in Copenhagen in late May, three new members were elected to Arla’s board, including Swedish Daniel Halmsjo.
Arla’s team consists of 14 Arla farmers selected by the oversight committee.
Swedish members of the oversight committee elected Daniel Halmsjo to the board because former member Jonas Carlgren did not choose to stand for re-election. This means that from Sweden, Daniel Halmsjo, Gustav Cambe, Inger-Liz Sjostrom and Marita Wolf are now sitting on the board.
Employee Representative Anders Olson is also from Sweden. The team consists of three staff representatives, who are selected by Arla’s European working group.
In addition, two external advisers, Nana Pule and Florence Rowlett, were elected regular members of the board. Thus, they have the same influence as other board members, including the right to vote.
In addition to Jonas Carlgreen, Walter Lawson also left the group.
