Respect for animals

Happy cows = good milk = delicious cheese! This does not only apply to the cows, it is also important for the goats and sheep. To make such delicious cheese, we strive for the best care for our animals - both on our own farms and through our cooperation with our more than 40 milk supply partners in the framework of our Milk & More programme. This means that the animals get plenty of time outside - for our cow's milk, for example, 100% of our farming partners follow the pasture milk standard, which means that the animals spend a minimum of 180 days, at least 12 hours a day, at pasture. We also apply technology that ensures the animals' comfort and they are given a balanced diet that reduces the need for antibiotics.
