"Belonging to a cooperative allows collection costs to be shared, offering farmers the best possible price for their milk. It’s a way of staying competitive.

By working together in cooperatives, farmers provide themselves with the resources to invest in sophisticated transformation tools, in R&D and in branding – and ultimately bringing their production to market together. Their elected representatives control how this production is made most profitable.

Quality and Traceability: the farmers are committed

Tests conducted at independent interprofessional laboratories ensure the safety and quality of the milk.

Traceability is controlled by strict monitoring of the collection points.

Best practice: one step ahead

More than 90% of our farms are involved in the actions suggested by the dairy profession, for cow milk (Charter for Good Agricultural Practices - Charte des Bonnes Pratiques d'Elevage) as for goat milk (Shared Charter for Best Practice in Goat Rearing - Code Mutuel de Bonnes Pratiques en Élevage Caprin). Through this, they are committed to transparency, traceability and safety: animal identification, health monitoring for the herd, feed, reproduction, animal well-being, environment, etc.
