Dairy Co-Operative Porlammin Osuusmeijeri Incorporates Its Cheese Business into the Subsidiary Porlammin Meijeri Oy

The Porlammin Osuusmeijeri dairy co-operative has decided to separate its cheese-making and marketing completely to its subsidiary company, Porlammin Meijeri Oy. The subsidiary Porlammin Meijeri Oy starts operating on 30 June 2016, when the cheese business is transferred to the company. The aim of the separation is to better meet the market challenges and improve the conditions for providing and developing cheese products and services.

The Porlammin Osuusmeijeri co-operative owns the complete share capital of Porlammin Meijeri Oy. Cheese business will remain a fundamental part of the Porlammin Osuusmeijeri group’s operations. After the reorganisation, the group’s cheese business will be operated under the name “Porlammin Meijeri Oy”, but products or trademarks will not be changed.

At the moment, the Porlammin Osuusmeijeri co-operative owns 100% of the stock of Porlammin Meijeri Oy, founded by the co-operative, but in the future the incorporation will give its partners a chance to buy stock in the new limited company. The plan is to increase the dairy’s cheese business substantially in the future, and having several owners would allow for greater resources for developing the operation.

The CEO of the Porlammin Osuusmeijeri co-operative, Kari Ollikainen, will also act as the CEO of Porlammin Meijeri Oy.

The new company Porlammin Meijeri Oy will also continue Porlammin Osuusmeijeri’s logistics and rental operations.
