DLA Group/Raisio sign feed procurement agreement

Two of Scandinavia's largest grain product organizations, Denmark's DLA Group and Finland's Raisio have agreed to work together on feed ingredient procurement.

DLA coordinates wholesale trading activities for 31 cooperative and privately owned raw materials companies in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the Baltic States, while Raisio is Finland's largest industrial grain processor, operating also in the UK, Sweden, Poland, Russia, Ukraine and Baltic countries. The two companies have agreed to cooperate mainly in the procurement of feed raw materials and other production inputs. They will also explore opportunities for cooperation in Eastern Europe and plan to set up a working group to explore these possibilities. 

DLA Group’s Managing Director Peter Iversen believes that the cooperation will bring new opportunities for the procurement activities of both parties: “Our objective is to make DLA Group a competitive player in the Northern European raw material market. Together with our international partners, we will be able to take advantage of sourcing larger volumes and to start new activities in new market areas.”
