Arla Foods, one of the world’s leading farmer-owned cooperatives and also known as the world’s largest producer of organic dairy products, marks a significant milestone as it expands its footprint in Asia with their entry in the Philippines.
Filipino families can now enjoy the delicious and nutritious taste of Arla Organic Powdered Milk Drink as it hits grocery shelves nationwide.
“Arla Organic Powdered Milk Drink is a game-changer in the Philippines. We would like to give moms the confidence and assurance that what they give their kids is truly good, healthy, and nutritious, in all aspects,” said Jens Christian Nielsen, Arla Food Senior General Manager in the Philippines.
“Organic milk is one of the finest sources of natural protein for your child’s growth and development. Arla Organic is 100% European Organic certified and produced only from cows that have been raised according to stringent European organic farming methods. This means that the cows can roam on lush green fields, fed with organic grass and feeds that are free from chemical fertilizers and our farmer-owners do not use growth hormones/artificial methods to increase milk production. We always make sure they are well-fed, healthy, and comfortable at all times,” Nielsen added.
Arla Organic Milk is produced in accordance with strict European Union environmental and animal welfare standards. In fact, Arla’s carbon emissions are just about only 50 percent of the global average per liter of milk – a testament to all the hard work the farmer-owners have been working for sustainability through the years.
“Health issues due to the current global pandemic have increased the consciousness of people on the quality of their food sources. This new reality makes more and more Filipinos on the lookout for healthier and organic choices. We at Arla Foods are glad to respond to this consumer demand with our presence here,” said Nielsen.
Protein crucial for child’s growth
“Kids nowadays have many forms of entertainment at their disposal and most of the time, these become distractions from the much-needed sleep of their growing bodies. It is during sleep that the body produces natural hormones to mend its muscles and build bones,” shared Dra. Paraluman Manuel, a member of the Philippine Pediatric Society and Philippine Medical Association.
Protein plays a vital role in helping stimulate muscle growth, especially during sleep. Consuming 40 grams of protein does wonders for the body while at rest. Protein also makes up the skin, muscles, hair, and nails and is a significant part of almost all the processes that happen in the different systems in the body like digestion and muscle movement.
Our body also relies on protein when it comes to immunity. In fact, antibodies that fight off viruses and bacteria are proteins.
“Sufficient protein intake is important for the body to function well, as well as protect itself from infection,” added pediatrician Dr. Catrina Yang.
As Arla Organic Powdered Milk Drink is made from organic milk, it retains all the natural protein that you get from fresh cow’s milk. Drinking Arla Organic Powdered Milk may help supplement the protein lost during lack of sleep.
When a mom gives her kids Arla Organic, she’s ensuring that the milk she gives has 50 percent more protein versus other powdered milk drink brands. Arla Organic also has the essential nutrients naturally found in milk such as Vitamin A, B2, B12, phosphorus and potassium. What you get is milk that does not just taste good but does the body a whole lot of good, too.
Arla Organic Powdered Milk Drink is available across all key retailers, including All Day, Landmark, Metro Gaisano, Puregold, Robinson’s, Rustan’s, Shopwise, Savemore, SM Supermarket, Shopwise, SM Hypermart and many more with a starting price of P50 per 1-liter pack.
