TINE Annual Report 2018

Doing it the milky way

We faced some major challenges in the summer of 2018. What many Norwegians referred to as the best summer ever was considered by us to be the worst period of drought. The most positive aspect emerging from this year was the excellent cooperation that flourished all over the country. Between the TINE organisation and dairy farmers, between the advisors and farmers – and even between farms. Many people can feel proud of how they dealt with 2018.

An environment for growth

2018 was a demanding year for Norwegian farmers on account of the drought. Dairy farmers certainly experienced this. More extreme weather, in the form of more precipitation and long periods of dryness, are something that the industry has to live with and learn to deal with. For TINE, growth and profitability through innovation and efficient, sustainable value chains are becoming crucial as a way of enhancing its competitiveness going forward.

1Cows and goats

Our four-legged friends work with us to deliver what we all believe is the best milk in the world. To achieve this, all our animals have to be healthy and happy, and we have to treat them with respect. Grass and fertiliser are unfortunately turned into greenhouse gas, and TINE is working hard to reduce this. Find out how.

2Farmers and farms

Milking robots and digital modernisation have changed the industry, but farmers’ relationships with their animals are still key. Dairy farmers are co-owners of TINE, which allows them to access advice, veterinary assistance – and the first climate calculator. Find out how this is making it easier for farmers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

3Collection of milk

The drivers who collect and deliver TINE milk are much more important for quality than many people realise. Lots of driving creates greenhouse gas emissions, dust and particulates, so TINE is working on devising more sustainable ways of collecting its milk. Milk containing traces of antibiotics is not collected. Drivers have to keep their vehicles clean both inside and out.
