Grundfos Give ARLA Food for Thought
rla Foods are one of the
biggest players in the dairy
arena with many household
brand names in their portfolio.
Originating in Denmark, they now
have production facilities in many
European countries. As you would
expect, food production is highly
regulated and there are many
restrictions to not only ensure that
the produce itself meets the highest
standards, but that any residual byproducts are properly treated to not
place additional strain on the
exacting standards is frequently
complex and expensive.
When Arla wanted to increase their
mozzarella production, they turned to
Grundfos for assistance, as within the
production process, water needs to be
separated out from the milk. This
residual ‘cow water’ as it is colloquially
known, includes the nitrogenous
compound urea, that traditional
treatment plants struggle to deal with
and therefore it needed to be sent offsite to be treated, which was an
expensive process. Grundfos introduced
them to their BioBooster – one of
Grundfos’ next generation solutions.

planting gains momentum,
award-winning Indoor Garden
Design announces Plants Work, an
innovative open-plan home office installation, situated within the Discovery Area of the Great Pavilion
(GPA/137). The exhibit demonstrates
the beauty of plants in the home and
working environment, and highlights
their scientifically-proven health
The open-plan home office comprises a
working and meeting area, showcasing
plants as an essential and highly versatile part of the design – harnessing the
green power of nature to provide
screening, focal points, visual interest
and a healthier working environment.
The installation will incorporate current
trends in house plants, showing how to
use the right plant for the right place,
and there will be a host of information
on the science behind our love of plants
and the ways in which they boost wellbeing, health and productivity.
Plants Work is co-created with IKEA, in
celebration of the beauty of horticulture
within the home workspace.
Ian Drummond, Creative Director of Indoor Garden Design says:
This is the second year that we have
co-created an installation with IKEA at
RHS Chelsea and we’re delighted. This
year, the focus is on the home office,
which is very timely for the way we live
and work today. Plants Work is a
celebration of plants in the home
workspace and visitors to our stand will
be inspired – not only do these plants
look visually beautiful, but they
positively impact on productivity, health
and wellbeing too.
