Dairy Spotlight: Arla BOB milk



Best of Both (AKA B.O.B.) is a new little ray of sunshine in the dairy aisle. Glug it, pour it, splash it or dash it, safe in the knowledge that B.O.B. has the fat of skimmed milk but is as tasty as semi skimmed milk.

Arla, the UK’s largest dairy company, is launching a unique and new branded milk product: Arla ‘Best of Both’ (Arla BOB®); fat-free1 milk that tastes as good as semi-skimmed, packaged with a distinctive yellow top.

The farmer-owned dairy cooperative has spent three years developing the technology to produce Arla BOB. It involves collecting some of the naturally occurring protein2 in milk and carefully adding more of it back into skimmed milk to deliver a taste and texture that is as good as semi-skimmed3 and fat-free. In addition, with Arla’s unique PurFiltreTM process, it also lasts longer in the fridge.

The launch of Arla BOB will be supported by a £7 million integrated marketing campaign designed to announce the product with bursts of ‘yellow’ across all consumer touch points. Featuring a national TV and shopper marketing campaign as well as 48 sheets, six sheets, press, digital and social media plus sampling and PR.

At a time when the UK Government is encouraging consumers to consider their eating and drinking habits, Arla BOB is set to rewrite the rules on what milk drinkers can expect from the traditionally blue, green and red-topped milk aisle.

The launch is part of Arla’s drive to support its farmer owners and become a leading household brand by adding value to its milk, through the development of innovative products, with a focus on the inherent naturalness of dairy. It follows on from the successful launch of Arla Protein, Arla Skyr and Arla Big Milk last year. Through 2016, it will also unveil further innovative products as well as range extensions across the dairy portfolio.

Arla BOB will be available in retailers nationwide from 11 January in 2-litre (rsp: £1.50) and 1-litre formats (rsp: £1).
Sarah Baldwin, Vice President, Marketing, Arla Foods UK, comments:

“We are perfectly positioned to launch something genuinely pioneering and Arla Best of Both is one of the biggest innovations we’ve created in the milk category. Our innovation strategy is to develop great tasting and healthier products whilst investing to help drive consumer understanding of dairy which we feel is part of our responsibility.

“With organisations like Public Health England encouraging people to consider drinking lower fat milks, we believe Arla BOB will be a popular choice for many consumers.”

According to recent research conducted for Arla, 49% of semi-skimmed buyers say they would buy skimmed milk but don’t like the texture and 33% would buy skimmed but don’t like the taste1.

1 Fat-free - the product contains no more than 0, 5 g of fat per 100 g or 100 ml”. This is a directive from the EFSA (European Food Standards Agency)

2 Protein is 4.7g for 100ml and 9.4g for 200ml. Standard fresh skimmed milk ranges between is 3.4-3.6g per 100ml and 6.8 – 7.2g per 200 ml

3Leatherhead Food Research September 2015. Based on statistically valid comparative taste test results with 208 regular consumers of fresh semi skimmed milk.

About the Company
We started innocent in 1999 after selling our smoothies at a music festival. We put up a big sign asking people if they thought we should give up our jobs to make smoothies, and put a bin saying 'Yes' and a bin saying 'No" in front of the stall. Then we got people to vote with their empties. At the end of the weekend, the 'Yes' bin was full, so we resigned from our jobs the next day and got cracking. Since then we've started making veg pots, juices and kids' drinks, in our quest to make natural, delicious, healthy foods that help people live well and die old.

What is a2 Milk™?

a2 Milk™ is pure and natural dairy milk, permeate and additive free, that is rich in the A2 type of beta-casein protein because it comes from specially selected cows that naturally produce only the A2 protein and not A1 protein.



The Origins of a2 Milk™

There are two main forms of the important cows’ milk protein beta-casein found in the cows’ milk that you drink. These two forms are known as A1 and A2 beta-casein.

The A2 form of beta-casein has been identified by scientific research to be the original form of beta-casein that would have been produced by cows thousands of years ago.

At some point in history, owing to natural genetic mutation, the A1 form appeared in dairy cattle and was spread throughout dairy herds across Europe, becoming the common form of beta-casein in many breeds of cows. Read More
