Summary

Røros Dairy is located in Røros, which is a town in a mountain region of the eastern parts of Southern Norway. Røros was historically a mining town and placed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Beside traditional economic activities such as agriculture and forestry, tourism is an important activity for the town and the district. Figure 1: Map of Norway and Røros Røros Dairy is the only organic dairy in Norway, established in 2001. It has experienced a steady growth since established and has today 20 employees and a turnover of 45.5 mill NOK (5,5 mill EUR) in 2013. There have been periods of economic struggles, but today the dairy is profitable and perceived as one of the most successful organic firms and value chains in Norway. Their success in combining growth with organic and other product qualities is the reason why we selected the dairy and its value chain as a case in the Healthy Growth project.
