WHAT IS TINE?
The TINE Group is one of Norway’s largest food companies and is a full-scale supplier of dairy products. Our business idea is to use clean and natural raw materials to produce tasty and healthy food. We aim to do this through close interaction between nature, agriculture, consumers and trade.
TINE SA - the cooperative
The milk farmers who are members and supply the milk also own TINE. In fact, TINE has a total of 11,400 owners and 9,000 cooperative farms. It is the farmers’ milk deliveries that form the basis for running TINE cooperatively.
TINE has several wholly and partially owned subsidiaries, both in Norway and abroad. The majority of TINE’s international activity is in the USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, Sweden and the UK.
A new beginning
The past year has been demanding, exciting, challenging and rewarding. All at once and often simultaneously, for both TINE and for myself. There has been a lot of analysis and planning. We have turned every stone and set a course from a to z. We have also mapped our course for the next years in the strategy we call “TINE 2025”. If 2019 was all about analysis and planning then 2020 is the year for action. And it is urgent!
- Gunnar Hovland, President and CEO
TINE wants to create a healthier and more active Norway – we also want to contribute to culinary experiences. To fulfil these aims we need to reach people at a young age. Therefore we sponsor activities in which young people participate for the purpose of learning and experience.
We believe in inspiration through shared experiences, good teachers and good, motivating role models. TINE focuses on society and the environment through awareness, action and humanitarian work.
