Winning starts with the right raw materials
We get our organic-certified (EU & China) milk from free range cows, grazed outside on lush green grass and fed a 100% organic diet.
We are part of a farmer-owned dairy cooperative that operates under the “farm management programme, which is designed to ensure the best-quality milk, produced in a responsible manner. We achieve this through initiatives in 4 key areas:
- Milk quality and food safety
- Animal welfare
- Climate and nature
This ensures the highest quality and food safety standards for our raw milk and final products - meeting market demand for quality.
Success is in the details
Achieving and controlling consistent high quality in infant formula products takes in-depth knowledge of ingredients' applicability in highly specific production environments. Building on industry-leading nutrition science research and documentation, our application and technology scientists can support with the design of your formula, processing and applicability challenges for industrial-scale production.
Meeting the trends
In today's markets, "organic" is a sought-after health and sustainability signal. But it's seldom enough on its own. Instead, successful products must tap into multiple storylines - combining key triggers that typically include clean label, sustainability, local sourcing and traceability.

- Certified organic ingredients in EU and China*
- Available in Kosher, Halal and vegetarian
- Free-range, grass-fed cows*
- Full traceability*
- Produced in Europe
* Mandatory requirement for Organic food products in EU & China

Security of supply
An organic milk pool that won’t dry up
Being part of Arla Foods gives us access to the world's largest organic milk pool1, enabling a strong supply chain setup that provides a direct source of plentiful raw materials, ensuring you can easily keep up with market demand. With such a large pool, we can deliver unmatched, consistent quality from batch to batch, too.
Our organic farmers – more than 900 in Europe alone - constantly strengthen their organic proposition around soil health, biodiversity, climate and animal welfare.
In 2021, for example, they accelerated their 30% CO2 reduction target to achieve 100% green electricity by 2028. And they will increase the minimum number of days cows are on grass from 120 to 150 each year.
