Waitrose to switch processors from Arla to Muller

Posted on: 24/06/22

From 1st May 2023 Waitrose will switch the processing and packing of its Duchy Organic milk from Arla to Muller.

As a result, Arla has served 12 months notice on some of the Waitrose Organic suppliers who will either be taken on a Bossman free transfer to Muller from May 2023 or alternatively will have to find a new milk buyer from 1st July 2023 (when the 12 months’ notice period expires).


Not all of the Arla directs who supply Waitrose will be served notice with some to be offered full Arla Co-op membership which will no doubt be an attractive move for some.


Arla took on the Waitrose Organic pool in 2019 from Coombe Farm whom we believe still supply Waitrose/Arla with Organic milk.
