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.
The foundation for the future
We have seen the outline of our own successful expedition, the initial stage, over the past few years. But that is just the beginning. Our goal going forward is clear; to ensure the longterm future and finances of dairy farmers, and to work together with our customers and our community to ensure we maintain rich rural areas, food safety and sustainable use of resources in our country. We have seen and proven what we can achieve, but we also have to achieve it without the “pandemic effect”. This will be our way forward.
– 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.
