​Arla launches Protein Cottage Cheese


Arla Foods has responded to the increasing numbers of consumers seeking protein rich foods with a new addition to its Arla Protein range – Arla Protein Cottage Cheese; containing 20g of protein per serving.

The farmer-owned dairy company launched Arla Protein 18 months ago and is currently valued at £5.2m*. The successful range includes Arla Protein drinks and yogurt pots in a variety of flavours. The launch of cottage cheese takes Arla Protein into the cheese aisle offering consumers even more choice.

Steph Barker, Arla Protein Brand Manager said: “We’re delighted to be building on the success of the Arla Protein range by taking it into the cheese category. Arla Protein Cottage Cheese, which is made with all naturally sourced ingredients, is a versatile ingredient that allows consumers to easily add protein to their diet.”

Arla’s Protein Cottage Cheese is launching in Asda, Tesco or Waitrose stores, RRP £1.30 per 330g pot.

In 2016 Arla has launched a number of exciting new products including Arla Cravendale 250ml bottles for the on-the-go shopper, a healthy option sitting next to the fizzy drinks and fruit juices. It has also launched Arla skyr drinks and Arla Best of Both – fat-free milk that tastes as good as semi-skimmed.

Supported by ongoing sponsorships with Leeds Rhinos and Our Parks, Arla Protein will also be sampling at numerous events across the summer, including Bear Grylls Survival Race, World Triathlon Series, and Total Warrior.
