The Swedish-Danish dairy group Arla Foods said on Thursday (29 June) that its dairy in Bislev, Denmark will resume the production of cream cheese for the Middle East markets.

The production was suspended and 50 employees were laid off as Arla Foods' Middle East sales came to a standstill due to a boycott earlier this year. The Middle East sales are still only a quarter of what they were before the boycott.

The Bislev dairy will initially recall eight of the laid off workers.
